Karndean Introduces LooseLay Longboard
Karndean Designflooring is unveiling its longest plank design to date as part of its new LooseLay Longboard collection.
Enhancing its best-selling Karndean LooseLay range, LooseLay Longboard introduces a 59 x 9.85-inch format with a 20mil wear layer and 4.5mm thickness.
As Karndean’s fastest and easiest-to-install product to date, LooseLay is an innovative format of luxury vinyl flooring boasting enhanced acoustic properties and excellent environmental credentials. Its proven K-Wave backing and increased dimensional stability secures the floor firmly in place and it can be installed over most hard and flat floors as long as they’re clean, dry and dust-free, according to the company.
The new collection features 12 sophisticated and contemporary wood designs, each inspired by authentic American, European and Australian woods including pine, walnut and oak. LooseLay Longboard is designed for quick and easy installation, meaning less disruption for busy homes and lifestyles, and impact in larger areas of the home including hallways, open-plan living spaces and bedrooms. The floors are waterproof, kid and pet friendly and soft underfoot.
“Our Karndean LooseLay collection is extremely popular thanks to its time-saving technology, versatility, and beautiful designs,” said Emil Mellow, vice president of marketing at Karndean. “We’re excited to introduce these 12 new colors in our LooseLay Longboard range, which offer all of the benefits of Karndean LooseLay, but in a format that is 40% longer than our existing wood looks. This is our easiest and fastest to install product to date and is highlighted by stunning visuals that customers have come to expect from Karndean.”
With colorways and finishes designed to complement emerging trends in home interior design, each wood hue not only replicates the realistic beauty and individuality of its original source, but also remains practical and easy to clean. Karndean’s American inspired woods include reclaimed and rustic pines—Reclaimed, Antique and Weathered Heart Pine and a contrasting contemporary walnut design, Character Walnut.
Developed from a wide mix of wood grains for a truly characterful floor, Karndean’s European Oaks are split into two distinct groups. Twilight and Raven Oak offer on-trend gray and charcoal tones for a modern look with authentic knots, lightly brushed grain details and subtle distressed finishes. The next group is inspired by aging French oak boards recovered from the heart of Loire Valley in Blois.
Finally, the collection concludes with an Australian design—Lemon Spotted Gum, which reflects the natural characteristics of this rich, Australian wood.
