Karndean Design luxury vinyl?

Posted by pghgolfgirl (My Page) on

I am in the process of a kitchen remodel and was planning on putting down laminate flooring. One of the stores that I went to over the weekend highly recommended using Karndean Design luxury vinyl instead because it has a better guarantee (with respect to water damage) and is locally made. It is about $2 more expensive per sq. ft. than laminate. Does anyone here have recent experience with it and can comment? The specific line I'm looking at is "Da Vinci Graphite Slate". Thanks!

RE: Karndean Design luxury vinyl?

I have a friend who has Karndean in his indoor / outdoor sun room. No heat, and in the summer is is always soaking wet from the pool traffic, college kid beer pong and rain. 12 years later, it looks like new. We are going with a DaVinci wood plank in our house. We are doing the entire house, bathrooms and all with it. We have sloppy dogs who love to bring mulch etc in all day long. I am told Walmart uses one of their lines in all of their clothing areas.

I am building a new custom home in Lubbock, TX where it is filled with cotton fields, i.e., red dirt and wind everywhere. I put Karndean Van Gogh "Classic Oak" throughout the entire home. There is no other floor surface used. I am hoping the house will be ready to move in, in 6 weeks. I am so happy with the floors. The pic is one of the bedrooms after the installers were finished. It needs to be cleaned.
