Karndean Designflooring has created a modern interpretation of architectural tiled floors found in grand Victorian and Regency villas with all the practical benefits of luxury vinyl.

The Heritage Collection offers four elegant geometric tile patterns, named after England’s most sophisticated Regency and Victorian districts. Each pattern is hand-cut in any combination of 12 solid colours, giving designers the opportunity to recreate the sophistication of traditional colour schemes, the elegance of classic black and white monochrome tiled floors or to create a uniquely modern floor design using contemporary pastel shades.

Like the original Victorian tiles, Karndean’s Heritage Collection flooring is hard-wearing and waterproof but, unlike the original floors that required regular waxing and buffing, is easy to maintain and will resist stains to retain its attractive appearance for years to come.

The realistic look and feel of each unique design is created with a high definition photographic layer coated with a clear PVC embossed wear layer and K-Guard+ surface protection for a hard wearing and hygienic surface. These layers are bonded to backing and stability layers to give a stable yet flexible product suitable for both residential and commercial applications.

Each design is custom cut into pre-assembled ‘mosaic’ tiles for a high-quality finish. Tiles feature micro-bevelled edges for an authentic look, a preferred 2.5mm thickness, 0.5mm wear layer and enhanced R10 slip resistance ratings for a hard wearing, hygienic and safe surface.

The flexibility of the Heritage Collection has been demonstrated at Tool & Gauge Kitchen in Somerset, where an eye catching flooring design has been created with three monochrome geometric patterns laid alongside coordinating borders, and at The Muddy Oar in Warwickshire, where a grey monochrome pattern has been laid alongside the random planks of Karndean’s Art Select Reclaimed Chestnut to produce a rustic nautical style with a modern twist.
