Follow the Footpath

Your Guide to Choosing a Layout and Format

Which of Karndean Designflooring’s three waterproof formats of luxury vinyl is right for you? Gluedown, loose lay or rigid core?

1. Decide on a Layout

How do you walk through the space?

Choose an installation pattern that follows the same path.

Is there more than one footpath through the space?

Choose a pattern that guides you in more than one direction, like a herringbone pattern.

 

2. Choose the Format that Fits Your Layout

Note: Different formats have different layout installation capabilities.

 

Gluedown

These individual, multi-directional planks and tiles may be laid in a wide variety of patterns, are compatible with design strips and borders (some exceptions apply), and can be easily cut to create virtually any pattern. Seamlessly transition from wood to stone looks when you choose from the same gluedown product range.

Loose Lay

Loose lay is our most ergonomic (comfortable underfoot) and has acoustic properties to help reduce noise transfer. Like our gluedown products, loose lay planks and tiles are multi-directional and can be laid in a wide variety of patterns. Unlike our gluedown products, loose lay does not require a full spread of adhesive and is not compatible with design strips and decorative borders.

Rigid Core

Due to the nature of the click-locking mechanism, our rigid core products can be laid straight or at a 45-degree angle. A selection of our Korlok Select rigid core products were made specifically to be laid out in a herringbone pattern (sized 24" x 6").
