If you’re searching for a luxury vinyl flooring product, you can’t do better than Karndean – which we’ve installed in countless domestic and commercial properties throughout Aldershot, Guildford and the wider Surrey area. But what exactly is Karndean flooring?
Made from calcium carbonate (limestone), polyvinyl chloride and a varying selection of pigments, Karndean flooring has five layers, making it extremely durable. Two layers make up the PVC backing, one layer features a high-definition photograph which provides a realistic emulation of natural materials, a further layer protects against wear-and-tear, and a final top layer is a polyurethane protecting coat.
Karndean flooring ranges differ in a variety of ways, chiefly the design inspiration behind them. Products also come in different sizes, formats and with different wear layers. Then there are the different borders you can choose from, helping you set your property apart from others in Guildford and Surrey. They include:
DECORATIVE BORDERS – A patterned border which best complements tile and wood plank floors. Various different decorative border styles have been developed to suit all the different Karndean flooring ranges that we supply and install.
TRAMLINE BORDERS – These are a minimalistic, affordable means of establishing decorative edging. Often employed with feature, metallic or design strips to create exciting and aesthetically pleasing effects that can complement your interior design scheme.
KEYLINE BORDERS – Available in a range of different sizes from 3mm, all the way up to 76mm – these borders are single strips that can be seamlessly integrated to add some flair to your floor.
Most Karndean flooring products can be sorted into one of two categories – inspired by wood, and inspired by stone. Within these two categories, there’s a huge variety of styles and finishes. There are products for those who want a chic, modern floor that suggests bohemian city living, just as there are products for those who want an interior that embodies the traditional, country living that characterises large swathes of our principal service areas of Guildford and wider Surrey.
If there’s any one criticism that can be levelled at Karndean flooring, is there’s almost too much choice. It’s easy to feel overwhelmed with so many options available, and with each being further customisable. That’s where D N H Carpets comes in. We provide free, expert advice to all prospective clients, then source samples so that you can see whether or not a particular type of Karndean flooring will suit its intended space.
Once we’ve found the perfect product for your particular home, we’ll arrange an installation date around your schedule. We pride ourselves on the speedy service we deliver clients around Guildford and Surrey, and in many cases can have your Karndean flooring installed within 7 days of you first contacting us. This ensures that your renovation/extension or similar home development project won’t be set back by any unnecessary hold-ups. Some products are glue-down, while others are loose lay. If you have a preference for how the flooring is fitted, please let us know.
