LooseLay Longboard Pearl Oak


“All the Pinterest research and Googling in the world still left me with a million questions. Flooring Xtra helped me navigate the new and foreign world of replacing the flooring in our large family home.”


Inspired by the intricate detail found in natural timbers, this classic Oak design will create a statement on your floor. We recently installed our Karndean LooseLay Longboard in the colour ‘Pearl Oak’ in Interior stylist and blogger The Styling Mama’s home.

As a large and busy family home with five kids creating constant chaos, choosing a product that was durable yet beautiful was at the top of her list. “We had a great experience with vinyl flooring previously, so it didn’t take much to decide on Karndean LooseLay Longboard in colour ‘Pearl Oak’ with its beautiful features.” Striking the perfect balance between warm and cool tone, LooseLay Longboard ‘Pearl Oak’ has a beautiful realistic look with incredibly distinctive textures.

“New floors are exciting, but they can be a bit tricky too. If you’re anything like me, you’ll have a thousand questions. Can you install over the current surface? Remove the current surface? What floor prep is needed? Should I have another coffee? I must admit, I was pretty impressed with how easy the whole installation process was. Once our floor prep was complete, the new flooring went down quickly and easily.” Vinyl is renowned for the ease of installation.
