Karndean vinyl flooring is one of the most exciting new flooring options on the market. Karndean creates vinyl planks and tiles that realistically simulate natural materials such as wood, stone, slate, ceramic and marble. With recent technological breakthroughs, these luxurious vinyl planks and tiles look so real that you will be amazed.

These floors are very different from plank type vinyl. Since the floor is installed piece by piece, it gives a handcrafted look like a hardwood or real tile floor. Karndean also produces these tiles and planks with semi-random patterns, so no repeating patterns cause the floor to look cheap or like a standard vinyl resilient floor. A unique feature of Karndean is the colouring of the floors. Minor changes to vinyl tinting to create a slight random chromatic aberration. By doing this, the floor will look like the real thing, and if you need to replace the planks or tiles, there will be no dye issues. There are six obvious reasons why Karndean luxury vinyl tiles and planks are considered by many to be the perfect floor.

1. Karndean vinyl floors are virtually stain resistant except for petroleum based spills. This includes everything from red wine to pet urine.

2. These vinyl tiles and planks are also waterproof. If there is a leak in the kitchen or bathroom, the water won’t damage the vinyl. This is a very clear advantage over real hardwood floors and laminates. If there is a leak under the dishwasher, and there is hardwood or laminate, part or all of the floor must be replaced at a hefty cost. Worst case scenario for Karndean is that you may have to reinstall the floor.

3. This floor is hypoallergenic and mildew proof.

4. Luxurious vinyl planks and tiles are harder to scratch than laminate and hardwood. If you have pets, you absolutely cannot install a better floor than luxury vinyl.

5. Karndean tiles are almost impossible to chip or crack compared to ceramic, slate, stone and marble tiles. If you put heavy objects on it, it may cause a slight indentation. Of course, if you have real tile, it may crack or chip and have to be replaced.

6. Cleaning is easy. Just wipe the dust regularly and occasionally with a damp cloth. No need to reapply any finish or polish required.
