We all know that many interior design trends come and go, but the enduring appeal of timber flooring remains ever constant in many Australian homes.
When it comes to choosing the best timber flooring however, it’s important to consider exactly what you require in terms of look, feel, durability, ease of installation and cleaning. Whether you’re after a show stopping formal room, easy care rumpus, spill resistant wet area or budget rental refurbishment, there’s a product to suit every home, lifestyle and price range.
True Blue Australian Timber
Mimicking the classic warmth and timeless charm of traditional hardwood floors, Engineered Australian Timber offers the ideal selection for a relaxed interior aesthetic. Manufactured from native wood, each 3mm real timber veneer board showcases the characteristic knots and graining of home grown Australian Blackbutt and Spotted Gum. Choose from smooth gloss, matte smooth or matte brushed surfaces for an earthy, rustic aesthetic or softly burnished finish.
Sophisticated European Oak
For a true touch of design elegance, you can’t go past Luxury Timber European Oak Flooring. From premium 15mm Wide Board with 4mm timber veneer, 14mm Standard Board with 3mm veneer or the highly affordable 12mm Slim Board format with 1.5mm veneer, the matte brush finish and micro bevelled edge of engineered timber floorboards are available in a range of different stains, creating the ideal base for country charm, Scandinavian chic, a coastal vibe or pared back minimalism.
Considered the epitome of luxury in many noble European homes for centuries, parquet flooring remains a design favourite today, equally suited to both heritage and contemporary homes. Engineered European Oak Herringbone Floors, with its distinct woodgrain and rich assortment of colours, adds glamorous visual appeal to all manner of interiors, and can create a sense of depth in smaller rooms. Due to the precision work involved in creating the classic parquetry pattern, European Oak Herringbone floors are designed to be glued down using the tongue-and-groove technique by an experienced installer.
Technological 7.5mm Timber
A true innovation in hard floors, 7.5mm Timber teams real timber veneer flooring with a hybrid stone polymer composite core, creating an exceptionally stable floor with the look and feel of natural timber. Along with a pre-adhered underlay, ensuring optimal acoustics and amazing underfoot comfort, hard wearing Timber Hybrid is also impact and water resistant for added durability in busy households.
A vastly more affordable option compared to solid timber, many Engineered Timber products, are super DIY friendly. Easily installed direct stick or floating, with simple to use 5G locking system technology, they can be laid and walked on the very same day. Engineered Timber is designed to last the long haul, and just like traditional solid timber, can also be lightly sanded back and recoated, restoring its original beauty for flooring that will enhance your home for years to come.
