Invictus flooring

‘Great flooring, invincible performance’

Out of the vast range of flooring options we offer, we’re hugely excited by the Invictus flooring range. It boasts an exquisite, elegant style throughout your home and office space. The main unique selling point of Invictus is the natural, realistic aesthetic it offers any space. It beautifully replicates true-to-nature elements, such as wood and stone. Invictus also provide bold statement patterns and textures.

The range is huge and really does provide a unique aesthetic for every space.

Karndean flooring

‘Inspired by Nature’

Karndean flooring is another excellent flooring choice, for many reasons. Similar to its Invictus counterpart, one of the main benefits to choosing Karndean is the natural aesthetic it fills a space with. Nature is at the heart of each Karndean flooring design, which provides light, tranquillity and calmness to a space.

Its versatility proves repeatedly that it can be beautifully suited to any room. With its waterproof quality, this also includes damp spaces, such as the family bathroom and kitchen. Its hyper-realism echoes natural stone, wood and a variety of tiles. Karndean also provides textures and intricate detailing, which allow a unique, bespoke look at any room, both domestic and commercial.

Other features with Karndean

As well as the vast range of styles, textures and patterns, Karndean flooring choices also provide the following features:

  • Durability and simple maintenance
  • Scratch, stain and heavy foot traffic resistance
  • Perfectly suited to high-traffic areas (domestic – kitchens, bathrooms and commercial – corridors, hallways and kitchens)
  • Incredibly waterproof, therefore safe from water damage, spills and dampness
  • Designed and produced using innovative technology to ensure high-tech, modern styles
  • Cleverly imitates its wood and stone counterparts, for a real aesthetic in any space
  • Combined with a unique K-Guard protection, ensuring a hygienic surface for many years
