    Hybrid Flooring Cost Guide

    Find out all you need to know about the pricing of Hybrid flooring and other alternatives.

    Priceless Durability

    In terms of price, Hybrid is not the cheapest option available on the market, but it certainly isn't the most expensive either.

    Although both vinyl and laminate are cheaper flooring alternatives, hybrid is by far the most hardwearing option. Meaning these floors will give you confidence in withstanding the stresses of the busy Australian household. With no need to repair or replace them in the future.

    Remember to factor in the price of trims and scotia when purchasing flooring.

    DIY Hybrid Installation Costs

    Hybrid flooring requires floating installation, which means you won't have to spend money on flooring glues or trowels. A pre-adhered underlay also saves money in floor preparation. Best case scenario, all you will need is a rubber mallet, floor cutter, tape measure, floor spacers, pull bar and a pencil. All of which (apart from the tape measure & pencil) can be purchased from Flooring Online for a total of $145.

    Depending on the state of your subfloor however, a floor levelling product may be necessary to achieve an even surface.

    As with anything, the materials used has a large impact on price. Timber flooring uses organic material and naturally draws a larger price. Hybrid uses a combination of limestone, vinyl and wood dust to create its coveted core. Hybrid has a more complex structure and mixture of materials than laminate or vinyl.

    In good news for the environment, left over scraps of material from hybrid is recycled for use in further batches, ensuring zero wastage and reducing greenhouse gas emissions in the process. 


    The thickness of a board also impacts the price. Flooring Online's hybrid flooring is available is Aqua-Tuf (8mm thick), Atlantis Wideboard+ (7.5mm thick), Atlantis Wideboard (6.5mm thick) and Atlantis (5.5mm thick). Traditionally the thicker the board the more expensive it is.

Finally, a pre-adhered underlay, saves you time and money in installing an additional flooring layer.
