Can you paint Karndean?

We got LVT (not Karndean but same type of thing) and I went away from my usual preference to get a lovely dark wood-effect. Three years on and I hate it! I want it to be lighter. We can't afford to replace it for several more years.

Can I paint it, and if so, what with?

No you cant
Its a LVT and so has a layer of vinyl on top. Getting paint to stick to that and then stay stuck when people walk on it will be very tricky
I used to work for a Karndean competitor and if anyone asked if they could paint our (almost identical) flooring I would advise them not to

Anything else I could do to change the colour?!

Rugs, mats, runners?

@RunningHoops difficult as it's in the kitchen. I wonder if I could get a big hard wearing rug to cover most of it, or if that would just get really mucky..?

You can get washable ones as I've just been looking for hallway.

So many washable rugs

I think you can actually buy rugs that are designed for kitchens and are washable
