Slate has been a popular material for flooring for hundreds of years, the extremely durable and beautiful natural stone has many properties that make it an ideal choice. However, it’s durability and hardness can be off putting – as can the expense. Karndean Knight tiles are available in a large range of natural stone effects, including slate, which offer all the benefits of the real thing as well as being warmer underfoot, easier to care for and more affordable! We recently installed a gorgeous slate effect vinyl floor in a family home in Ringland, Norfolk covering the kitchen, dining room and conservatory.
The Karndean Knight tile in Jura was laid on the diagonal with a 5mm design strip dark grouting to accentuate the natural colours and patterning of the tiles. The Jura has a muted earth tone with a linear grain, incorporating many shades for a natural, authentic look. The slight texture of the tiles provides additional authenticity as well as anti-slip properties.
Unlike natural stone, vinyl flooring retains heat meaning that the floor won’t be cold to the touch and is a perfect choice for use with under floor heating systems. As well as being extremely durable and easy to look after, the Karndean Knight range comes with a lifetime residential guarantee – promising a fabulous looking floor for many, many years.
