We hand-selected volcanic slate from England’s Lake District, sourcing unique pieces of 300 million-year-old stone. Originally rough in texture, honed slate undergoes a grinding and polishing process to give it a smooth finish. Our designers created this look in a neutral tone to allow the linear markings and fractured features to shine through. Add history to your home, without the maintenance, with our Honed Oyster Slate.

Laying Patterns can be defined as the arrangement of your planks or tiles on your floor and they allow you to add your own personal stamp on your design to define your space. View our Laying Patterns Page to see the various options and to get ideas for your project.
Karndean Designflooring has a wide range of personalisation options to help you achieve a unique look for your room. Why not try a design strip between wood effect planks for a different effect or to replicate the gaps between real wood floor boards?
You can also use design strips as borders around the edge of your room or around a key feature such as a fireplace or kitchen island unit. Thinner 3mm and 5mm strips can be used as keyline borders or in combination with wider 10mm, 30mm or 76mm widths to form a tramline design.
Design and feature strips that can be combined with this floor are shown below. Strips can also be requested as samples. To order a sample, simply click 'Add To Basket' next to the strip you like.
The Knight Tile range has a particularly wide range of designs, borders and design strip combinations, ensuring there’s something for everyone. Each floor is supplied in a durable 12 mil (0.3mm) wear layer and comes with a lifetime residential warranty.
