Impervia Luxury Flooring is perfect for a modern kitchen. The French grey used here blends perfectly with the kitchen units and décor. The French grey planks can be installed throughout the complete house or you can use the herringbone for other areas. The image below shows the French grey herringbone in a bedroom. If you have underfloor heating there is no need to worry about putting a rug over the floor as it will not affect Impervia, unlike real wood flooring.
Impervia tiles were fitted in a busy family home due to its hypoallergenic surface, waterproof construction and ease of cleaning.

For anyone who’s ever inquired about wood flooring in a kitchen, it quickly becomes apparent that it may not be the best choice. While it looks beautiful and certainly isn’t out of the question, as a natural material and product natural wood flooring is far more vulnerable to environmental and climactic changes that are more common in kitchens than other areas in the home. Innocent spills, washing up mishaps and spitting pans on a hob can spell disaster if not seen to quickly enough, and with the addition of pets and young children real wood boards can start to show the wear and tear alarmingly fast. This is where Impervia comes in.
We created Impervia as a solution to all of these minor household inconveniences, allowing families to have the kitchen of their dreams without the upkeep or the price tag. Available in both straight plank and herringbone, Impervia can be used in any kitchen no matter the brief, and performs superbly under the daily wear and tear conditions of a family and pet-friendly home. Waterproof, scratch and dent resistant and perfect for underfloor heating, Impervia is used extensively across the UK by industry experts who require flawless, faultless products that will create beautiful homes for their end clients.
In our efforts to create a product that is easy to fit and easy to maintain, Impervia can be cleaned using your basic household floor cleaners and doesn’t need underlay or adhesive to lay. With an acoustic backing built in to each board, it removes the hassle of needing to add tubs of glue or rolls of underlay to your order, which can quickly add up to quite an expensive shopping list. Water won’t bother Impervia at all, and oils and staining foods will also clean away more easily than on a traditional real wood floor. While we are by no means inviting you to ‘pour on and leave for hours at a time’ the olive oils and tomato sauce products that would finish a wooden floor much more quickly, Impervia will certainly be easier to clean up than its naturally-grown counterpart.
With its rigid core, there is a more high-end luxury feel to fitting your kitchen with Impervia, and the product looks and feels far more like real wood than a roll-out vinyl or two-dimensional laminate. Finished in our own factories, the ceramic lacquer applied to each board is finished with the same brushing techniques used on the natural wood products from our sister brand The Solid Wood Flooring Company, meaning that Impervia feels – to the touch – very much like a natural oak or walnut product.
With underfloor heating beneath, your Impervia flooring will be as warm underfoot as any timber alternative, and its stone composite make-up actually conducts heat more efficiently than wood, meaning that your floor will heat up more quickly and save you more energy in the process. And if underfloor heating isn’t your thing, these boards will still feel like a warm, tactile alternative to tiles or laminate. As long as the floor you’re fitting it onto is perfectly flat, you can install over existing tiles, wood and laminate or straight down onto a concrete screed.
