Karndean LVT is a popular flooring in the LVT range. It is a real stand out as it comes with many benefits. First off, it’s easy to maintain. No intensive cleans needed here. It can be cleaned using a mop and if its looked after correctly it can last for decades to come.
It’s durable and tough so if you have a household with children and pet’s you’ll have peace of mind in knowing that it doesn’t scuff or scratch easily.
The kitchen can become cold during the winter months. Karndean helps keep the place warm as it retains warmth underfoot. It’s also compatible with underfloor heating.
If you have a slip in the kitchen due to spillage, Karndean is slip tested so it’s great in areas that can get a wee bit wet, as it is very water resistant.
This floor is also good for the kitchen as it doesn’t harbour dust mites or bacteria. So, in this instance, it’s a good flooring product if you have children who have allergies.
Choosing this flooring for your home is a good option as it has several key benefits. The first reason is that it is environmentally friendly so ideal for the kitchen. Marmoleum is made up of natural items and they won’t give off any chemical fumes or gases over time as its biodegradable.
It’s also hygienic, just like Karndean so perfect for fitting in the kitchen as it holds antimicrobial properties.
It’s easy to maintain and keep spotless because of its flat surface and with the right ca,re it can last for more than 40 years.
It’s heat resistant too so if your cooking, hot pans or other utensils won’t visibly damage the floor or melt the material, so it reduces the need to replace.
Marmoleum offers itself in a variety of colours, patterns and styles and can be bought in roles, planks or tiles. This is great so its suited to many designs and budgets.
