The Herringbone style vinyl floor is very on trend this year; a style of flooring that has been around for centuries – specifically ancient roman times. It’s a timeless, neutral piece that can be paired with absolutely any colour and furniture style. Herringbone is a zig-zag natural wood flooring pattern that creates a gorgeous focal point to any room, whilst easily complimenting any aesthetic you’re going for. Whether you’re going for minimalistic, traditional, rustic or contemporary, herringbone is a fantastic pairing for any look.

Hardwood herringbone flooring can be a little pricey and difficult to maintain, however the vinyl version is the perfect affordable option without the fuss.


If you’re looking to jazz up your space and add that little extra touch, why not try a monochrome floor?

Monochrome flooring is the perfect focal point for any room in your home – particularly popular in the kitchen, bathroom and hallway. Monochrome is a mixture of black and white, and comes in a range of patterns depending on your aesthetic. Karndean have a huge range of abstract flooring designs, such as Clifton, Montpellier and Lansdown which are perfect for any contemporary-feel spaces.

Why not pair a monochrome vinyl floor with rich colour, such as emerald greens or royal blues to create that classy, timeless feel? Sending you back in time to the era of The Great Gatsby!

Stained hardwood

If your vibe is a little more on the rustic side, we have the perfect flooring style for you. Karndeans stained-look hardwood vinyl flooring gives off that rustic, homely cottage feel that’ll have you nestled up by the fire in your cosies.

Karndean’s Hickory Peppercorn and Hickory Nutmeg give that classic old-style feel due to it’s deep brown nature and natural old wood texture. Looking at this flooring, we’d never second guess that it wasn’t actually wood!

Pair your Hickory vinyl flooring with comfy neutral shades to keep the rest of the room bright in contrast to the deep browns. Add plenty of cushions, blankets and throws and you’re all set for a cozy day in!

The Van Gogh

Karndean’s Van Gogh range has a wide selection of natural wood-look vinyl floors from European oaks to reclaimed, salvaged timbers. This collection offers everything from rustic, to contemporary and all that’s in between, so you’ll be spoilt for choice!

We particularly enjoy Van Gogh’s ‘Country Oak’ vinyl flooring, as it offers a light and airy wood effect but with a rustic, old-cottage feel. In a cool mid-brown tone, and recreated oak grain you’ll fall in love with your flooring over and over again.

Pair this vinyl flooring with light neutral whites, creams and beiges to create that light and airy cottage feel. You can also add some more depth to the space using different shades of matte royal blues to add that classic, timeless, luxury feel.

This colour combination is sure to give you rustic, seaside, country-home vibes to come home to after those adventurous days at the beach.
