By far one the floor’s best features, is its stunning realistic effect. Each tile looks like real solid wood, benefitting from stand-out detailing such as knots and grains. However, as it isn’t created with real wood, you’ll be able to enhance the comfort of the floor by installing it alongside underfloor heating systems. However, some systems may not be compatible, so this is something you’ll need to check prior to installation.
Finally, the floor is really easy to maintain. You can keep it clean by either giving it a light daily sweep or hoover. Mopping the floor once a week will also help to keep it looking its best. Besides this, any spills can be quickly wiped away without the fear of staining.
The Karndean Art Select Storm Oak is a beautiful, real wood effect luxury vinyl floor. Adding a calm and trendy look to the home, it’s warranty provides maximum reassurance and ensures you’re getting the best value for money.
