With 2016 coming to a close, we wanted to take some time to reflect on what an exciting year it has been! In case you missed any of these moments, we have compiled our top five Karndean events of the year:
5. Karndean Appears on the Small Screen
This year, we featured in an episode of the network series Office Spaces, where our Van Gogh Tawny Oak helped transform a drab office into a stylish work environment. View the full episode here. We were also featured on Episode 325 of the HGTV show Property Brothers: Buying + Selling, where our Art Select - Winter Oak RL04 was installed in Charles and Renee's basement!

4. Karndean.com Gets a Makeover
We kicked off 2016 with a fresh new website layout – complete with the addition of interior design inspiration areas, décor and style trends, social media integration; and we improved old favorites, like our Find a Retailer and Floorstyle tools.
3. Da Vinci Product Launch
Karndean proudly introduced more than 30 new designs to the consumer marketplace this year. In May, we released the newest additions to our Da Vinci glue down range, including 12 new wood colorways and 10 new 12”x18” stones, both of which have beveled edges. Da Vinci’s designs can be categorized as naturally classic, reclaimed and weathered, or fabric-textile.
2. LooseLay Longboard Product Launch
Karndean LooseLay Longboard joined our award-winning LooseLay collection in October. Featuring the same innovative, K-Wave friction grip backing as Karndean LooseLay, the planks in this collection are our longest to date, measuring 59” in length. Due to its size, Longboard is quick to fit, meaning less disruption for your family during installation.
After breaking ground in 2014, in September this year we held the grand opening of our expanded US corporate headquarters and showroom. The new warehouse is home to our shipping and receiving areas, samples department, production department, and our auxiliary showroom for display prototypes. Not only did our warehouse nearly double in size, but we added cutting-edge daylight harvesting technology to provide energy and cost savings. Equally as impressive as the expanded warehouse is our redesigned showroom, which is the largest showcase of designflooring in the country. These improvements allow Karndean to provide quality products and services to our valued customers and to the public!
With a year as exciting as 2016 nearly behind us, we look forward to keeping the momentum going in 2017!
