Choosing Your Karndean Floor

Karndean Designflooring

Summer is the season for vacation, cookouts, and family fun so getting your home ready for the holidays is probably close to the bottom of your list of priorities. However, if you typically host your family holiday gatherings and are considering a Karndean floor for your home, the time to begin the process is now. Over the next few posts, we’ll guide you through the steps of your renovation – including selecting your floor, visiting your Karndean Designflooring retailer and what comes after installation – all for a smooth and pleasant renovation! It all begins with narrowing down your options, which you can do by considering your personal style, the space you're renovating, browsing our website, requesting samples and literature, and locating and visiting your Karndean Designflooring retailer.

Consider your style and your space: You'll want to choose a floor that fits in with the rest of the flooring in your home and that complements your decor and furnishings. For example:

  • If you tend to have more traditional furniture or furniture that has been passed down to you, chances are you’ll prefer a traditional looking floor. Whereas, if you have a more updated style you may prefer a sleeker, more contemporary floor design or design in a more modern color like gray.

  • If the floor is the only part of a room you plan to change, you should also take the other colors and elements of the space into consideration. For example, if you have a lot of darker colors in the room, a lighter floor may add balance and brighten up the space.

  • Think about the adjoining rooms and consider the direction that you walk through the room you're renovating. This will help you determine the best direction that the floor should be laid, and you'll most likely want to choose a floor that fits in with the style of the floors in rooms nearby.

Request a sample or brochure

Once you begin to get an idea of the type of floor you’re looking for, browse our product selection and request some free 4” x 4” samples and brochures. These samples are nice for getting an idea of the texture of the floor and a preview of the color. Plus, if you’re completely remodeling the room, these are easy to carry around with you as you select paint colors, countertops or cabinets. Typically, you should receive your samples within 7-10 days of your order, depending on your location. You can always follow up with our customer service department at 888-266-4343 for a tracking update.

Find A Retailer

To get a better idea of what the product will look like laid out, you should next find your local Karndean Designflooring retailer. Our “Find a Retailer” tool, located at the top of the homepage, allows you to enter your zip code and then pulls a list of retailers in your area. The results will be listed in order by retailers who have the most in-store Karndean Designflooring displays, but there is also an option to sort by distance to find the one closest to you. You can even select “Have this retailer contact me” to fill out a form with your contact information and more about your project, and the chosen retailer will follow up with you.

Stay tuned to learn what to expect at your retailer and what happens once your flooring is installed. Keep up to date with us so you know when the next blog publishes!
