Karndean Opus – The In-Depth Review

The Opus range of floors features both wood and stone formats in exceptional resemblance to the originals.

There are some stunning and compelling designs that are utterly unique in their looks – it makes you believe when Karndean says it goes more than an extra mile, into the deeper ancient European forests and Australian back countries and beyond, to seek and bring out fantastic patterns, textures and designs that simply take your breath away!

The comfort underfoot is incomparable. The Opus range of floors is soft to the touch. So using them on a daily basis for walking, or standing for long periods of time is pure pleasure!

Another unique feature of the range is the availability of different tile and plank sizes, including large tile and planks. This flexibility enables you to explore a range of design options.

For example, if you are using the floor in a smaller room, a large tile or plank format can have a dramatic impact on the size of the interiors – such planks or tiles create the illusion of space and make the room look bigger. One of the reasons for this effect is the presence of fewer grout lines in large-dimensioned tiles.

Alternatively, having larger formats in the midst of a space and smaller tiles/planks along the edges helps define the space well while creating a cosy effect.

These luxury vinyl floors are free of formaldehyde and phthalate. Formaldehyde is a known carcinogen and can cause respiratory problems such as difficulty in breathing.

As a phthalate-free flooring, these floors prevent the risk of fertility problems in men and women, birth problems in pregnant women, and learning and behavioural disorders in children.

Opus floors come with a wear layer that is 0.55mm thick. This wear layer imparts impressive properties to the floors including scratch, stain and moisture-resistance.

The thicker wear layer also enables the floor to handle the stress of daily use, including heavy foot traffic and fall of objects, impressively. The wear layer also safeguards the design and looks of the floor.

So, you get a floor that reduces your maintenance load and saves you money.
