Floors, Walls & Ceilings

Perfect for paws As part of plans to revamp its entire store estate, the UK’s leading pet supplies specialist Pets Corner selected Karndean Designflooring to complete its new-look store design and help improve the overall shopping experience for its customers. Opting to move away from an industrial look and introduce a contemporary design scheme throughout, Pets Corner looked to replace an existing resin floor with

Karndean’s Opus Niveus (WP411) for a warm and inviting finish. “We wanted a product that offered the authentic look of a traditional wooden

floor but without the drawbacks of natural timber,” commented Matthew Harding, Store Development Manager of Pets Corner. He said: “Our stores need to withstand heavy footfall and most importantly, they need to be pet friendly. We were immediately impressed with the look and durability of Karndean, as not only will it stand the test of time, but it is also easy to clean and maintain. “Now, thanks to our fresh new-look and remodelled format, we’ve been able to significantly improve our store navigation and our Karndean floor has played a major role in the success of our design concept. “As a trusted brand, Karndean exceeded our expectations and offered us a hard wearing flooring product which is both stylish and practical, and importantly, it was delivered within budget.” So delighted with their Karndean floor, Pets Corner opted to roll out the look at a further 13 stores nationwide including Stoke, Poole and Alton, with a further ten stores planned in 2014.
