Karndean Design Flooring

'Practical flooring designed to last'

Karndean is an extremely hard wearing luxury vinyl tile (LVT) which can cope with the usual demands of our day to day lives. Resistant to typical household stains and easy to maintain with a regular damp mop and the use of Karndean cleaning products. Karndean floors can handle accidental water spillages, or a dropped mug without resulting in permenant damage. Karndean doesn't trap dirt, dust mites or bacteria.

Stubborn stains can be removed by spot cleaning with concentrated Karndean Clean and a kitchen non-abrasive scouring pad.

Karndean Flooring must be fitted correctly by trained professionals and cleaned with Karndean products in order to maintain any guarantees and to ensure that it will wear well. 
Designed to last for many years, each floor carries a 35 year residential warranty. Should any tile or wood plank be damaged, a spare can be fitted quickly by your installer. Karndean offers several ranges with various Wood effect and Tile effect designs so can be suited to any interior decor. 

Unlike tiles it is warm under foot, however, Karndean can also be paired with underfloor heating systems for that added luxury feel.

The Livyn range from Quick Step is a hugely popular LVT as it is simple for a trained fitter to install, compatible with Under Floor Heating, hard wearing and very versatile. This type of flooring can be floating, which is popular with clients who prefer not to have something too permenant or if they may need easier access to under floor areas, or used with adhesive. The contemporary designs on offer are continously updated and always follow the latest interior design trends.

Preparation Work
It is common for our fitters to move white goods and kickboards in Kitchens and Bathrooms in order to lay the vinyl tiles underneath to leave our customers with the neatest finish possible. This is something that can be discussed at consultation.

Luxury Vinyl Tiles must be laid on to a flat, smooth, solid surface to keep it looking its best for longer. Our fitters are able to carry out any preparation work that may be required to save having to hire any other tradesmen. Concrete sub-floors occassionally need a thin layer of self levelling screed, this is common in rooms that have had ceramic tiles and have been left with a bumpy surface. Screeding is a process that is best done a day or two ahead of fitting to allow it to thoroughly set, however, a fast setting option is available in certain circumstances. Where the sub-floor is boarded it is standard to have a layer of hardboard orplywood where necessary before laying the vinyl.
