Pupils and staff at Invicta Grammar School, Kent are enjoying a newly built serene library thanks to their Karndean floor.
Karndean Designflooring recommended its Art Select Blond Oak parquet effect flooring for its warmth and texture coupled with its durability. The unique grains, knots and the realistic embosses create a beautiful and realistic floor that is also practical; the perfect backdrop for a busy school environment.
After considering the many possible laying patterns, Invicta Grammar School opted for a traditional herringbone design with the beautiful handcrafted planks complemented by a brick lay border and a tramline to frame the space.
“As you can imagine, the library is the heart of the school, where we encourage learning in a variety of ways. It is therefore vital that this space feels welcoming and warm and our Karndean floor has helped us to achieve this,” commented Mary Harris, ICT Manager, Invicta Grammar School.
“We recognised the benefits of Karndean and as a team chose luxury vinyl flooring over natural products for its ease of maintenance. The authentic look of the floor has left many of our students fascinated by the fact it is not real wood!”
