The timeless elegance of timber flooring

When you choose wooden flooring, you choose a material that has been crafted by nature to last a lifetime, with natural beauty and timeless elegance.  Timber flooring is so adaptable and is suited to both classic and contemporary styling.  It adds a visual warmth and depth to room which cannot be replicated.  Here are our top tips for choosing a timber floor.

Functional wood floors

Whether you’re installing new flooring to the whole house or just renovating a room, your first conversation should be with a flooring specialist who understands the advantages and limitations of wood or timber flooring, who can provide expert advice on acoustics and comfort, and can recommend a product that is designed to cope with the hustle and bustle of daily life.

Choosing your style

The great thing about hardwood timber flooring is its flexibility.  Available in a wide range of finishes and plank sizes, there’s the timber flooring solution for almost every application.

Wooden flooring is the perfect foil to minimalist architecture and design.  The natural warmth and irregularities in the timber offset the simplicity of whites and greys and sleek clean lines and open spaces of contemporary styling.

If cosy, classic and eclectic is more your style then a wood flooring is the perfect choice to create traditional style and ambiance. The natural rich tones of Blackbutt, Spotted Gum or Heritage Oak will complement the opulence of overstuffed leather sofas layered with cushions and traditional Persian style rugs.

Ethical and sustainable

Knowing how their timber floor has been sustainably grown and harvested is important for people who want to minimise their ecological footprint.  Wood and wool are the only renewable source material for floor coverings. Timber flooring is beautiful to look at, durable and hardwearing and locks away carbon for its lifetime.

Our suppliers can vouch for the ecological origin of the wood that’s used in their wood flooring, we also insist that the glue, lacquer and oil used in the manufacturing process meet the strictest international emission standards.

Flooring to fit your lifestyle

Whether you live in Perth or regional Western Australia, you need flooring that can stand up to the extremes of weather conditions and the rigor of family life.

The natural properties of timber flooring mean that it’s cool underfoot in the hot summer months and warm in winter.  If you live in an area that gets very cold in winter, you’ll be pleased to know that with the right underlay, our wooden floors are compatible with underfloor heating.

Thanks to the dirt-repelling lacquer used to finish our timber flooring, keeping your floors looking beautiful for years to come has never been easier.  Vacuum regularly, mop up any spills quickly and always use a microfiber mop with the manufacturers recommended cleaning product.
