Karndean Art Select Herringbone vs Plank in Glacier Oak

Laying new floor over entire ground floor (including an open plan lounge/dinner kitchen that opens onto a North facing patio through large glass sliding doors). We are a restricted in floor build up height to under 15mm, hence going for a Karndean LVT floor (Art Select, Glacier Oak or Mountain Oak) in a herringbone pattern, instead of a wood floor. Trouble is with Lockdown, etc, its been hard to see one these laid out over a large area (in situ, as it were). Does anyone have experience of these? I prefer the glacier oak I think, but unsure whether to go with the herringbone vs a plank layout. Advice appreciated.

    We laid Karndean down everywhere in our previous house, and loved it. Definitely recommend!

    I agree with you, I prefer the Glacier Oak and I also think it looks nice in the herringbone layout.

    Below is a picture I found on the Internet, sorry it isn't great quality - of the glacier oak.

    And another one of this style floor but by another brand:

    I also found one of the Mountain Oak:

    I don't know if these help, but I definitely love the herringbone layout. And I agree with you about glacier oak, but I do recommend you Google it or search on social media, people have uploaded pictures of Karndean laid in their homes. This means you can see exactly what it looks like in a big space.

    Karndean are on Houzz too -

    I hope this helps. Good luck!

    We use these in our CAD programme ... can work very well in whole floor applications - sometimes the herringbone works better in larger rooms than in smaller ones though ... you can have planks in smaller spaces - ie mix it up as long as the colour is all the same . If most daylight comes from northern light I’d suggest the warmth of mountain oak , If it’s mostly southern light then glacier oak can be just as lovely. Also take into consideration any wooden furniture that you have already.
