Key features of Karndean

1. Realistic Designs

Karndean is known for its incredibly realistic designs. Whether you’re looking for the rustic charm of oak, the elegance of marble, or the sleek look of slate, Karndean LVT can provide it. The advanced printing technologies used by Karndean ensure that each tile or plank looks as close to the real thing as possible, complete with intricate details and textures.

2. Durability and Resilience

One of the standout features of Karndean LVT is its durability. It’s designed to withstand heavy foot traffic, making it an excellent choice for both residential and commercial spaces. The flooring is scratch and stain-resistant, which is particularly beneficial in homes with children and pets.

3. Water Resistance

Unlike natural wood or stone, Karndean LVT is highly water-resistant. This makes it an ideal choice for areas prone to moisture, such as kitchens, bathrooms, and basements. The waterproof nature of LVT also means it’s easy to clean and maintain, as spills can be wiped away without worrying about damage.
