Cliffside Plank is a glue-down residential luxury vinyl plank. These incredibly realistic wood visuals are available in four different colors. The planks are 7.25 inches and 2 mm thick. Each box of Cliffside Plank contains 43.5 square feet.
Recently, Karndean added twelve new wood plank looks to the Van Gogh collection. The new styles replicate the visuals that occur through burning, liming, and smoking.
Tawny Oak, Burgundy Oak, Hessian Oak, and Honey Oak are the floor lightly lime washed oak look designs. These four designs are reminiscent of salvaged antique flooring, which work well for traditional and contemporary designs.
Reclaimed Redwood, Aged Redwood, and Salvaged Redwood are designs that were inspired by the American Redwood railroad ties. The Burnished Beech and Smoked Beech designs create a rich and warming foundation for any decor style.
The Lime Washed Cypress and Burnished Cypress are two of the most unique plank designs in the collection. These two styles combine liming and smoking techniques, which results in a more refined and sophisticated aesthetic that is perfect for any room in the house.

FreeFit is a new waterproof luxury vinyl tile/plank flooring that does not require an adhesive. This innovative flooring is totally glueless, waterproof, antibacterial, and free of phthalates. Installation is easier than it has ever been with FreeFit luxury vinyl tile.
FreeFit is 4mm thick and it has a 20 mil wear layer. It has 100% dimensional stability, and it has a suction technology that forms an anti-skid surface between the sub-floor and the FreeFit luxury vinyl tile. This flooring is becoming popular in hospitals around the country because it is waterproof, antibacterial, free of phthalates, easy to clean, and easy to install. FreeFit can also be used in many different commercial and residential applications.
FreeFit planks and tiles must be installed tightly against perimeter walls without expansion gaps, and you will need to use Gecko Tape during the installation. Gecko Tape will be the locking agent around the perimeter for the FreeFit luxury vinyl tile. The Gecko Tape helps hold down the product to prevent any space for moisture penetration or movement. The rest of the floor can be installed like normal. Replacing any of the FreeFit tiles is also an easy process because you just take out the damaged tile or plank and put down a new one.
FreeFit also comes with a limited lifetime residential warranty and a 15 year commercial warranty. This product is easy to install, easy to maintain, and has an amazing warranty.
Karndean flooring is designed to be both durable and easy to maintain. All of the Karndean products are manufactured with an enhanced surface treatment called K Guard+. K Guard+ helps protect your flooring against everyday wear, scuffs, and spills. The K Guard+ surface treatment helps keep your floor looking great for years to come.
For everyday cleaning, you just need to sweep away any loose dirt and dust. After you’re done sweeping, then you can mop up the remaining dirt with the Karndean Clean solution. Every six months to a year, you can use the Karndean Refresh to improve the look of the flooring and help prevent damage.
Here are a few extra tips to help you keep your Karndean flooring clean:
Mop up any spills as soon as you can to reduce any risk of staining.
Avoid sliding or dragging furniture or heavy objects across the floor, and use felt protector pads on the bottom of furniture and chair legs to prevent scratching.
Use entrance mats that are backed with natural latex.
Use load bearing castors to protect the floor against indentation from heavy furniture.
Avoid the use of bleach-based household cleaners because they can make the floor slippery or cause discoloration.

Having a great floor is one of the most essential parts of any home, and there are so many different choices when it comes to flooring. A great floor can be made even better with a beautiful or fun area rug, but lately there has been a new trend in the floor design world. Floor pillows or floor cushions are becoming more popular by the day. Floor pillows come in many different sizes, colors, shapes, and designs. They add a bit of comfort or personality to the room. They are great to rest your feet on, use as extra seats when company comes over, or even as chairs for your pets.
Many people make their own floor cushions and it is not hard to do. You can find any DIY floor cushion instructions online. However, if you don’t want to make your own then many home decor stores sell them now. I have even seen them sold at large name brand stores you can find in any mall. Floor pillows are a great addition for bedrooms or living rooms. If you have a game room in your home or maybe a movie room, then you can get a few floor cushions to add some more personality to the room. Floor cushions can add accents to the room or they can go along with the rest of the color scheme, but always remember that floor cushions are designed to make the room more creative and fun.
