Below you will find the case study of a recent installation of Karndean Opus Grano and Knight Tile Carrara.
The Karndean Opus Grano gives you a really contemporary, clean gray wash timber look. Thus providing a modern and versatile backdrop to any room design. Couple with a splash of colour for a vibrant space, or cool monotone stylings for a more understated modernist space.
The Opus collection brings you a fresh, modern feel. The wide range of colour tones and mix of surface finishes combined with clean lines means you can achieve a sense of simplicity and visual space whatever your colour scheme.
Add complementary design strips between tiles for a realistic grout effect.
Carrara takes its inspiration from classic white marble. A slightly gray-white background has charcoal marbling throughout for a really classic marble look. If you’re looking for a traditional checkerboard effect, pair with Midnight Black.
A customer recently pop into store to take a look at The Knight tile gluedown product. Below is the Grey Riven Slate tile she picked out. The is one of the Knight tile gluedown products.
Our customer explained to us that she was never happy with these old ceramic tiles. The tiles had moved and cracked over time. The majority of the loose tiles was down to poor installation of the tiles. Incorrect plyboard used and gapping throughout the floor made it inevitable that at somepoint the flooring would fail.
We did a full uplift and dispose of old flooring. Then prepped the subfloor with new 9mm ply. You will see in the first photo below the access point in the floor – this is a service hatch. We installed a purpose built matwell with black coir matting in order for the customer to have regular access to the hatch.
Grey Riven Slate authentically replicates the smooth, undulating surface of the natural stone, and combined with stylish, stormy grey tones, the resulting floor design is exquisite. These tiles work well in both traditional and contemporary settings – they can be paired with a light-coloured design strip for a striking effect, or a darker strip for a subtler approach. There’s also the option to have no strips, as the variation within the tiles is enough to create a simply stunning canvas for your décor.
