    Timber Flooring Cost Guide

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

    Priceless Beauty

    Timber flooring typically sits at a higher price point than other flooring alternatives. However, engineered timber is significantly more affordable than solid timber.

    For many the additional cost of timber flooring is justified by having the beauty of a natural product in their home.

    Additionally timber flooring can be in investment and is a great way to add value to your home.

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

    Maintenance Cost Guide

    It doesn't cost a lot to keep your timber floors looking amazing. All Flooring Online's floors are designed with low maintenance in mind, however, it's handy to have a few cleaning products in your home to keep your floors looking day-1 fresh. We recommend regular sweeping and occasionally a spray mop using a neutral wood floor cleaner. Note avoid wet mopping your timber floors.


    As with anything, the materials used has a large impact on price. Timber flooring uses organic material and naturally draws a larger price.

    The timber used in Flooring Online's European Oak range is certified as sustainable by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC).


    As a general rule, the thicker the boards or thicker the timber veneer, the greater the cost. A thicker board will offer greater stability and overall durability. Engineered timber can also be sanded back and refinished over its lifetime.

    Flooring Online have engineered products available in a selection of timber veneers, or face layers. Ranging from 0.6 to 4mm, there’s an appropriate flooring solution for every home, lifestyle and budget.


    Generally, the wider the board, the greater the cost, but one that is arguably worth it for creating a visually larger space, with fewer seams to interrupt the organic knots and wood grain patterns. 

    Backed by Our 25 Year Warranty

    Have total confidence in your floors with our 25 Year Residential Warranty. Available across our entire range of Timber flooring.

    Is Engineered Timber flooring waterproof?

    No, it is not completely waterproof however, due to its layers, it works better with water than solid hardwood timber.

    Can Engineered Timber be sanded/repolished like solid timber flooring?

    Yes, Engineered timber floors can be sanded down and refurbished in their lifetime. However, how many times this can be done depends on the thickness of the solid timber veneer. Most of our engineered timber boards are safe to sand one to three times. Our 12mm Engineered European Oak range should not be sanded. 

    Can I install Herringbone Timber flooring myself?

    We recommend that you hire a professional installer for Herringbone flooring due to the more complex board pattern and detail required for install.
