Karndean Flooring FAQs

Karndean flooring can be installed over most underfloor heating systems. Because of its slimline build, the heat from electric heating mats passes through Karndean vinyl flooring easily. This makes it an excellent choice for warming your room quickly and effectively. However, make sure your underfloor heating has been insulated so that the surface temperature does not exceed 27°C (80°F).

Karndean can be laid over existing flooring, but make sure it is prepared properly. Remove all waxes or sealers, and smooth down levelling or embossing to a flatness of 3/16” in 10'. Here’s how to prepare each specific flooring material:

  • Wood: Fix any gaps between the floorboards and install underlay over the top. If the hardwood has warped over time, it may be better to remove it outright, as this will make laying vinyl on top very difficult.
  • Laminate: Vinyl must be laid over an even, well-adhered surface, so identify potential high-moisture areas (like under washing machines, sinks, and dishwashers) and make sure the laminate has not swelled.
  • Tile: Fix or fill cracks, chips, or missing tiles. If the grout lines are too wide, the vinyl may end up bumpy when laid on top. It may be easier to remove the tiles and use an underlay in that case.

Karndean vinyl flooring is fully waterproof, stain resistant, and non-slip, making it ideal for wet areas like bathrooms and kitchens.

Karndean is a vinyl flooring structured in five layers:

  • Two PVC backing layers
  • One high definition photographic layer
  • One clear PVC embossed wear layer
  • A top polyurethane (PU) protective coating

They consist mostly of calcium carbonate (limestone), polyvinyl chloride, and pigments.

The exact cost of laying a Karndean floor depends on the size of the room, the type of flooring, and whether you fit it yourself or use the services of a professional. In general, however, you can expect to pay roughly £25 per square metre.

Karndean flooring can be easily cleaned with a quick mop and gentle cleaner, so you don’t have to spend hours scrubbing on your hands and knees. Banish muddy footprints and spillages with ease!
