Karndean – Opus Grano and Knight Tile Carrara

Opus Grano

Karndean – Knight Tile – Carrara

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.

Below are photos of the recent installation.

Knight Tile Gluedown

Grey Riven Slate ST16

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.

Day to Day Cleaning:

  • Install a good quality entrance mat by exterior doors to collect loose
    dirt and grit.
  • The application of a suitable floor polish is advisable to assist with ongoing maintenance.
  • Sweep or vacuum your floor every day
  • Regularly use a fresh mop and neutral cleaning solutions to evenly clean your floor. Remember to collect and dispel all excess fluid into your mop bucket.
  • Address spillages as soon as you can to reduce the risk of staining or causing slips.
  • Insert protective pads and cups under furniture to protect your floor from scratches and indentations.
  • Regularly trim your pets claws to help avoid scratching.
  • Dragging furniture with unprotected feet across the floor will damage any flooring.
  • Using abrasive liquids or metal scouring pads to aid cleaning can damage the floor.
  • DO NOT – Clean the floor with solvents, caustic detergents, washing up liquids, soap powders, bleach, furniture polishes, petroleum based products, pine gels, stain removers or highly coloured products. Such products may make the floor slippery or cause permanent damage.
