Why Choose Karndean?

Perhaps you want the rustic, traditional features of crafted wood planks. Or maybe the distinctive, intricate patterns and textures of stone?

With a Karndean floor you can have either – and with the latest technology you’ll receive a floor that is the ultimate in style, performance, and quality.

When choosing the look of a room, getting the right floor is critical. You can, after all, easily change the furniture or the paint colour – so it’s worth spending the extra time and investment in getting a high-grade, long-lasting floor.


Karndean’s extensive range of styles for both hardwood and stone flooring means that practically any personal taste can be accounted for.

Whether you’re after a simple stone effect or a sophisticated wood pattern, Karndean has thousands of combinations of styles, colours, tones, textures, and decoration for you to choose from.

If you want to add an extra flourish to your floor, Karndean provides a range of design strips and borders for both stone and wood flooring.

Whether you prefer a keyline border, a tramline border, or a patterned decorative border, Karndean can accommodate.

Longevity & Cleaning

Karndean use the latest flooring technology and durable materials to make a product that will last for years in your home.

It’s structured with five layers – two PVC backing layers, one high definition photographic layer, one clear PVC embossed wear layer and a top polyurethane (PU) protective coating.

Karndean planks or tiles can easily be replaced in the event that one gets damaged. You’re not forced to replace the entire floor, which can be an expensive problem that comes with other flooring types such as carpet.

Their products are covered by ISO9001, the international standard for quality, and ISO14001 environmental standards.

In terms of maintenance and cleaning, all it takes to keep your floor looking fantastic is to give it the occasional treatment with a pH neutral cleaner such as Karndean Clean

Karndean flooring is also a popular choice for busy retail and commercial environments with high levels of footfall. If you’re worried about a new floor getting messed up by children or pets, don’t worry – it’ll be able to cope with the daily wear and tear your household puts on it.

Karndean provides a lifetime transferable purchase guarantee on a number of product ranges.

Other Benefits

Unlike hardwood flooring, Karndean isn’t prone to warping or losing its shape due to temperature or moisture.

Karndean isn’t cold underfoot, like stone or ceramic flooring, and can be used with underfloor heating.

Karndean flooring is fully slip tested.

It’s not a breeding ground for dust mites and bacteria – unlike carpet.

It doesn’t require sanding or lacquering that hardwood flooring does.

There’s no problem with using it for an upstairs room – the weight of stone and ceramic floors might be too much depending on the room size.

Each piece of Karndean flooring is unique – unlike laminate or engineered wood, that can look highly manufactured.

Karndean is water resistant – it’ll never peel or de-laminate.
