About Designflooring FAQs


Who is  Designflooring?

Put simply, we are the leading manufacturer of luxury vinyl flooring. To find out more about Designflooring and our exceptional products, visit our company page.


What is Designflooring made of?  

Our flooring is made of part recycled PVC with high quality plasticisers. It is used to create a textured surface, for a beautiful, natural effect.


Will a Designflooring floor be slippery?

As with most smooth floor coverings, water and other liquids can make it slippery. Our floors are designed to be slip resistant. But it is always best to clean up any spillages straight away, and keep the floor dry.

What is the difference between a metallic strip, feature strip and design strip?

There are several main differences between Designflooring strips:

  • Metallic strip - these can be used in standard borders and features, and come in sizes of 3mm, 5mm, 10mm, 30mm and 76m
  • Feature strip - available in six colours, these 5mm wide plastic strips are usually used on tile floors to give the natural effect of grout lines or to complement wood planks
  • Design strips - these are strips cut from another tile or wood plank. They come in 3mm, 5mm, 10mm, 30mm and 76mm.

Added between tiles and wood planks, strips can give the impression of grouting for a natural effect, and a contemporary look and feel to your home.

When browsing through our product, each product page will show  a selection of strips for you to chose from.  


What are standard, tramline and keyline borders?

  • Standard border - a patterned border designed to complement tile and wood plank floors. Designflooring have selected an assortment of decorative border options to accompany all of our ranges
  • Tramline border - a simple and affordable way of creating decorative edging. They can be used in combination with feature strips, metallic strips and design strips for a range of effects
  • Keyline border - single strips that can be added to the edge of your floor. Keyline borders are available in 3mm, 5mm, 10mm, 30mm and 76mm and can be used with metallic and design strips
