Karndean Knight - Onyx T88 + KP51 Arctic Driftwood

Picture 1 of 11

We had the pleasure of working with a couple who had the opportunity of building their new home. The case study is focusing on the kitchen and breakfast area which is open and spacious.

The challenge was to some how create two separate living areas within the one space and still having the feeling that everything was flowing! The customer had a good idea of what it was they were trying to do and were in the process of  looking for a black slate tiles and  and  oak wood flooring for the breakfast area.

One of the problems when installing two different types of flooring in the one space is the height difference which can be a real nuisance. Here at Floor Designs Falkirk its our expertise which makes the difference, after going through a variety of different floor coverings including tile effects made from laminates by Pergo and Berry Floors. We explored all the different types of wood flooring engineeered and solids with varying heights but finally we found a solution.

We looked at vinyl tiles because of the seemless transition we could have between two different tiles with no height difference, the customer specifically was interested in Marmoleum , Amtico and Karndean Flooring.  Floor Designs designed a few possibilities with the customer, they really loved the idea of creating a sweeping curve to match their curved kitchen units and this would be noticeable theme to impress their guests.

Their Kitchen units were  gloss white and the worktops were a dark colour made from slate.  In the end the T88 Onyx tile from the Karndean Knight-Tile Range was the final choice as it married well with the slate worktops creating  a sharp contrast against the white units.

In order to highlight the curved design separating the two areas it was decided that the best option was to have  a light coloured Karndean wood effect in the breakfast area.  With the contrasting lighter tones and interesting character of the Knight Tile KP51 Arctic Driftwood was the clear winner.

The finished job is a great example of just how flexible decorative vinyl tile from Karndean and other Brands like Amtico, Polyflor can be.  As well as the obvious sweeping curve separating the two areas, the use of a 5mm Metallic Karndean Silver design strip border followed the entire perimeter of the Kitchen including the curved units in the Kitchen adds a real touch of creative class.
