There are many types of flooring on the market nowadays and different flooring materials have different advantages so it’s a good idea to get advice before you decide.

Karndean Design Flooring

Karndean flooring is made from an exceptionally durable form of customised vinyl. Inspired by real wood and stone, Karndean flooring is a stylish and practical choice. There’s a wide variety of colours, textures and finishes, allowing you to create a look unique to your home. It’s easy to maintain, hard wearing and guaranteed to last for many years to come.

Each plank and tile is carefully designed for authenticity. They don’t look uniform or manufactured, but convey all the great characteristics of natural materials. Colours are defined with variable shades and tones, just as they are in natural wood or stone.

This luxury and comfort is not at expense of strength, Karndean flooring is hard wearing. The latest technology and the most durable materials are used to make Karndean flooring last. Karndean is guaranteed for 12, 15 or even 20 years, depending on the range, so it’s a long lasting investment in your home.

Ceramic Floor Tiles

Floor tiles have many advantages. They are easy to keep clean with many tiles requiring minimal effort – a mop round with warm water or a microfibre cloth is very often all that is needed to keep your floor looking beautiful.

Glazed ceramic floor tiles are an excellent choice for areas within your home like the kitchen and bathroom that are full of moisture. They are highly resistant to water, as well as general wear and tear. Most will withstand heavy foot traffic within the busiest areas of your home.

Some ceramic floor tiles are treated to help prevent slipping. Another advantage is that they are resistant to staining or damage with chemical agents and they do not fade or change colour, even under direct exposure to sunlight.

Porcelain Floor Tiles

Porcelain is a popular choice for floor tiles, given its durability. Made from refined clay and fired at high temperatures, it is much denser than a standard ceramic tile. Installed properly, porcelain floor tiles can last a lifetime. Porcelain floor tiles, like many other floor tiles, are easy to clean and maintain. Glazed or polished porcelain is non-porous, making it a hygienic choice as it won’t harbour harmful bacteria. It’s also highly resistant to staining.

Natural Stone Floor Tiles

Natural stone floor tiles create a luxurious, elegant feel in any room. Each individual tile is different and has its own characteristics – no two tiles will be exactly the same.

Natural stone flooring is incredibly durable. Once sealed, it’s hard wearing, water resistant and very easy to care for.

A lasting investment for your home, natural stone floor tiles can be expensive but for many people the beauty is worth the cost.

Vinyl Flooring

Tough, practical and hygienic, modern vinyl flooring offers an extraordinary choice of designs from brilliant colours, abstracts and black and white, to perfect reproductions of natural materials such as wood and stone.
