What is Karndean Flooring?

Karndean is such a force of nature within the flooring world that many people think that Karndean is a type of floor in itself. So what is Karndean flooring?

Karndean flooring is just one particular brand of Luxury Vinyl Tile flooring - and it's the biggest name in the industry. Established as a small business in 1973, Karndean have spent over 40 years at the forefront of flooring, so they really do know their stuff.

Karndean understand that quality is the most important part of any floor, so all of their ranges are created with the highest standard of materials and with decades of technical knowledge behind each tile. All Karndean LVT flooring is waterproof, long lasting and scratch resistant, and built to such a high standard that you'll find lifetime domestic warranties offered across their ranges (and generous commercial warranties offered, too).

One of the many things we love about Karndean is their huge range of different designs. Their team of designers are some of the most passionate in the world and have toiled to create perfect solutions for any room, no matter your style or budget. The personalisation of your floor can go even further with a great range of Karndean Design Strips. These are strips which go between your tiles to look like grouting, and you can mix and match them with the tile for the perfect combination.
