Karndean stone floors are stylish and beautiful. The choices really are endless, you can have simple and classy small marble square tiles or large rectangular travertine ones through to stunning random panel slate and limestone designs.
There are plenty of colours to choose from which can be complimented with various design strips and we can lay the tiles straight or diagonally in your room.
Although the designs are very realistic Karndean is not actually stone, it is a Luxury Vinyl Tile. This gives it a number of advantages over ceramics, slate and quarry stones:
- Karndean is warm underfoot and not cold like stone, as such it does not require underfloor heating to make it comfortable to walk on.
- Karndean is more forgiving if you drop something on it. The material itself is unlikely to break, but also what you drop on it is less likely to smash for example.
- Karndean stone can be fitted over wooden subfloors, where stone tiles are not recommended because the weight can cause movement leading to the grout to fail or the stone to crack.
- Karndean is very hardwearing guaranteed for up to 20 years on certain ranges, but in the unlikely event of damage, because it is not grouted in place we can uplift individual tiles without breaking others like you would with stone and glue new ones in place.
