Karndean Van Gogh Frosted Birch VGW83T Review

Searching for a floor that offers a real wood effect without the practical and cost drawbacks? The Karndean Van Gogh collection could be just what you’re looking for.

The range offers an incredible collection of rustic style wooden designs, and the Frosted Birch vinyl floor is by far one of the most popular. Here, you’ll discover more about this impressive floor, along with some of the main features and benefits.

A sumptuous, ultra-versatile floor

The Karndean Van Gogh Frosted Birch VGW83T floor boasts a beautifully sumptuous design. Ideal for use in practically any room of the home, it provides a stunning real wood effect. Its surface features subtle textures to create the realistic effect, while a square edge profile creates a professional, seamless looking finish.

Features at a glance

There’s a lot to love about this stunning floor. It’s main features and benefits include:

  • A soft, delicate appearance
  • Completely waterproof
  • Generous measurements
  • Fantastic lifetime warranty
  • Easy to install and maintain
  • Compatible with underfloor heating

The Frosted Birch vinyl floor benefits from a beautiful, soft and delicate appearance. This makes it especially ideal for use in the dining room, lounge or kitchen. Thanks to its 100% waterproof design, it can also be used to enhance the appearance of the bathroom. Real wooden floors and many laminates aren’t suitable for use in moisture-rich areas such as the bathroom. So, this floor gives you the ability to benefit from a wooden effect without the practical drawbacks.

The planks contained within each pack can cover up to 3.25 square metres, measuring 1219mm long, 178mm wide and 3mm thick. There’s also a reasonable 0.55 wear layer which protects the surface against wear and tear.

As if the floor’s beautiful and completely waterproof design wasn’t great enough, it also features an incredible lifetime warranty. Few vinyl floors come with this benefit and it provides great peace of mind that your money is well spent.

You should find the floor very easy to install and maintain. It requires a glue down method, so you will need to ensure the subfloor is smooth and dust-free. If you have an existing hardwood floor, it could be installed directly upon that. Maintenance wise, it’s also simple to keep the floor looking brand new. You can mope it with ease given that it’s waterproof, and a daily hoover should be enough to keep it dirt free.

The floor is suitable to be used with underfloor heating too. This means, you can enhance its comfort during the colder months. However, as all heating systems are different, it’s important to make sure yours is compatible with the floor according to manufacturer guidelines.

There’s so much to love about the Karndean Van Gogh Frosted Birch floor. From its beautiful chic design to its incredible lifetime warranty, this is one of the best quality vinyl floors you’ll come across.
