Choosing Design Components

Add a personal touch to your floor with our variety of design components.


Design Strips

Design strips

Design strips can be installed between our planks and tiles or used to create a slim border or grouted look. Add visual interest to the design in a material that won’t stain or fade and doesn’t have to be sealed like typical grout. Look to our design strips page for more options and ideas.


Decorative Borders

Decorative borders   

Decorative borders add a finishing touch or can be used to frame permanent fixtures in the space, like a kitchen island.
