    Explore the possibilities of Designflooring in your kitchen

    Karndean Designflooring

    Designing the kitchen can be an intimidating process for homeowners, especially when it comes to narrowing it down to colour and layout schemes.

    Karndean presents a few scenarios for the kitchen, helping homeowners visualise the various possibilities of the Designflooring range.

    Design strips

    Consider design strips to add variety to small kitchens. Take a traditional kitchen floor with tile and grout or a stone look a few notches high on the design quotient by adding grout strips. One can add variety to a small kitchen using strips without overpowering the space. In addition to the improved aesthetics, design strips also offer a practical benefit as they won’t crack, chip or stain as grout would. Strips can also be added between planks, not for a grouting effect, but to create a streamlined ship's decking effect.

    Framing the island 

    Creating a border around a kitchen island will add visual interest and anchor the floor. For larger spaces, the kitchen island border can be balanced with a complementing border around the perimeter of the kitchen. Karndean Designflooring offers a selection of pre-assembled design borders – one can either use a single design strip to create a keyline border, or two or three strips to create a tramline border.

    Angled lay pattern

    An angled lay pattern suits larger kitchens; for instance, laying the product at an angle in a large or open kitchen that leads into another room, will fill out the space nicely and allow for a seamless transition to the next room. The product can be laid at a 45° angle, or for a more elevated design, planks can be installed in a herringbone pattern.

    Try incorporating a design component into your kitchen project for a completed look. Start experimenting with Designflooring using Karndean’s Floorstyle tool. Simply select a space, choose a floor and lay pattern, and add your design components.
