Which type of flooring is best for each room of the home?
BEST TYPE OF FLOORING FOR THE LIVING ROOM
Taking the unofficial title as ‘social hub of the home’, the living room has certainly worked hard for its appellation. From furniture feet to the human kind, there are endless daily demands that test this shared space. This is why so many Australian homeowners choose hardwood flooring.
This popular option is perfect for high traffic areas due to its unbeatable engineered qualities and synonymous longevity. Timber flooring is also renowned for its timeless visual appeal and its ability to bring warmth and style into a space.
Finish your living room with a plush rug to make your guests feel right at home.

Create your own secluded sanctuary by choosing carpet in the bedroom. With less foot traffic than most other spaces, homeowners can get away with using a softer fabric without worrying about tread marks and damage. Instead, reap the rewards of undeniable comfort and warmth thanks to great insulating properties and pile type – all of which helps build your own relaxing retreat.
