The UK's market leader in luxury vinyl flooring Karndean Designflooring has unveiled a brand new Augmented Reality (AR) app which allows users to view any Karndean floor in real time.
Using cutting edge AR technology, the sophisticated app brings flooring ideas to life and for the first time, allows specifiers, contractors, architects and interior designers to view any Karndean floor in a commercial space during the specification process.
Designed to support commercial users, the FREE app can be used to demonstrate which Karndean floors suit the style and shape of any commercial space.
With access to the full Karndean Designflooring catalogue via the app's innovative Touch Selector, specifiers and designers can explore and test out any floor they want, whenever they want.
Whether it's for an educational or healthcare facility, a retail outlet, leisure destination, hotel, restaurant, bar or workspace, users can see what light wood planks look like and then swap it out for a light stone look tile, or maybe even parquet. They can also rotate the floor to test out different laying angles.
Easy to use, it allows users to take snapshots as they go along, edit out walls and furniture and then save to compare. What's more, it is fully integrated with Facebook and Twitter, so users can gain vital feedback during the design process.
"We understand a product sample is not always enough to help architects, interior designers and contractors decide which of our floors will look best in their commercial or retail scheme," explains Paul Barratt, managing director of Karndean Designflooring.
He said: "Seeing really is believing. That's why our AR app will soon become a vital tool during the specification process."
Available now, Karndean's AR app can be downloaded from the App Store or by simply searching 'Karndean'. Users will also need to download a 'marker' on www.karndean.com/app or order a pre-printed marker by calling our internal sales office at 01386 820100.
