Add a touch of European flair with our LooseLay Longboard designs

Karndean Designflooring

Whether you’re trying to create a multi-purpose space to accommodate the whole family, or an exclusive pied-à-terre, get inspired by our latest collection of European wood designs when planning your next design project. 

As well as being quick and easy to install with its K-Wave friction grip backing, our new LooseLay Longboard collection offers an array of European inspired wood effects, perfect for any interior style. 

If you’re looking for true character, why not consider a deep charcoal palette? It will work particularly well in large, open plan kitchen and dining spaces. Inspired by original European Oak, Raven Oak (pictured below) features a mix of intricate grain patterns. By teaming it with white cabinets and furniture, our product designers have created a characterful, but moody, monochrome interior.

Design tip: Use subtle pops of colour to bring character to a monochrome space.

For a softer interpretation, look to Twilight Oak (pictured below) with its mid-grey hues. Popular in European interior design, grey and neutral tones work extremely well in open-plan rooms, giving the illusion of more space. Introduce clean, subtle pastels to bring sophistication to your interior style.

Design tip: Make the most of your space with an extra-long plank design, like our LooseLay Longboard and its unique 1.5 metre format

If you’re a fan of reclaimed materials, you’ll love the inspiration behind our – Pearl (pictured below), Neutral, French Grey and Champagne Oaks, with each design replicating the individual knots and grains of aging French oak boards recovered from the heart of Loire Valley.

Design tip: Achieve a consistent feel within a studio layout with a single floor design. Look to add color with a statement wall to break up your space. 

If you prefer a more classic look, opt for a warmer design, such as Champagne Oak. With traditional European décor featuring intricate architectural details and elegant furnishings against deep wood tones, we’re seeing a move towards the 'contemporary classic' style for a warm, homely interior.
