Whether your space is small and compact or wide and sweeping, adding impact can bring it to life and there are plenty of ways to go about it. As an alternative to a striking design or colourway, look to add impact with extra-large planks and tiles. Offering a quick and easy installation, our LooseLay Longboard can be the perfect option for popular open plan kitchen spaces with its unique 1500mm x 250mm plank design.

Like all Karndean’s products, it’s waterproof and compatible with underfloor heating. Importantly with Karndean LooseLay, a plank can be easily replaced if unexpected damage is caused.

Industrial Luxe
A constantly evolving trend in kitchen interiors is the industrial look, incorporating weathered steel effect flooring against exposed brickwork or metallic tiles Giving off a functional feel, the industrial luxe trend allows you to showcase simple design with the help of texture and tone.

The rusted effect of our Da Vinci Molten has been popular in bathrooms, while the darker tones and subtle patterning of our Da Vinci Eisen has been a big hit in industrial styled kitchens (pictured below).

Health and Wellbeing
We spend around 90% of our time indoors, with 65% of this time spent at home, so it’s no surprise we look to the floor to help us improve comfort, health and overall wellbeing. More so than ever, acoustic comforts can play an important role in our decision making, especially for those of us living in multi-level or townhouse homes with a kitchen above. The floor can make a big difference by reducing noise transfer to rooms below.

Acoustics and convenience can also go hand in hand. Those of us interested in acoustics are often looking for a convenient, quick fit floorcovering with less upheaval, meaning less disruption to everyday life. New for 2017, our first rigid core collection Korlok can be the answer.

Classic Parquetry 
A timeless classic in flooring. Despite the versatility of parquet flooring with several laying patterns available, herringbone remains a top trend for this year. Interestingly, our Art Select Blond Oak parquet is popular for making small kitchens look and feel more spacious. Blond shades are also one to watch going forward. Now, second to grey floors in popularity of late. You may also find other inspiring ideas for your kitchen on our website.
