A truly timeless choice, timber flooring brings warmth and natural beauty into any space. From wide Tasmanian oak planks to herringbone hardwood timber flooring, timber can create a high-end aesthetic while making rooms feel spacious and luxurious. Solid timber and engineered hardwood flooring are both tough, hard-wearing choices that are ready to take on heavy foot traffic, and they’ll gleam for years to come with the right care. 

Laminate flooring

If you’re seeking a classic woodgrain aesthetic at a more accessible price point, look no further than laminate flooring. This type of hard flooring has evolved over the years into a smart, durable option that strikes a perfect balance between practicality, style and price. Laminate flooring is available in a range of finishes from glossy to matte, with a wide range of detailed surface options to choose from. 

Vinyl flooring

Vinyl flooring is a highly versatile flooring choice that works well in a variety of applications. Whether you want the appearance of tile, natural stone or hardwood flooring, you can find an attractive and affordable option that offers all the low-maintenance benefits of vinyl.

Hybrid flooring

It’s an innovative and impressive material composed of several layers that are specifically designed to withstand wear and tear while offering the look and feel of authentic hardwood flooring at a fraction of the price.

What are the differences between hard floors and soft floors?

Soft flooring refers to carpet, whereas hard flooring includes hardwood, vinyl, laminate and hybrid options. It can also refer to rigid flooring materials like tile and or concrete. Keep in mind that hard flooring can always be softened up with comfortable rugs, which provide additional cushioning and a pop of colour.

What are the benefits of hard flooring?

Both residential and commercial spaces can benefit from the many advantages of timber, laminate, vinyl and hybrid flooring. Hard flooring is:

  • Easy to clean: A little sweeping and mopping is often all it takes to keep hard flooring free of dirt and residue. Synthetic flooring options are especially easy to maintain.
  • Durable and long-lasting: Various types of hard flooring are designed to withstand regular wear and tear, as well as other issues like staining, moisture and scratching.
  • Long-lasting: With the right maintenance, hard flooring can last for decades.
  • Great value for money: Hard flooring doesn’t need to be replaced as frequently as carpet, which makes it ideal for rental spaces and one-and-done home improvement projects. Plus, it can help increase a property’s resale value.
  • Attractive: There’s nothing as timeless and tasteful as sleek timber or a timber-style hard flooring alternative. 
  • Versatile: Hard flooring can work in virtually any type of room — from high-traffic hallways and office environments to family living spaces and bedrooms.
  • Easy to install: Once you’ve chosen the perfect flooring type during a free in-home consultation, the technicians at Carpet Call can transform your interior space with a fast and stress-free installation process.

What are the different types of hard floors?

Hard flooring types can be classified in several different ways:

  • Material type, like timber, laminate, vinyl or hybrid flooring.
  • Composition, like solid timber vs. engineered wood.
  • Shape and size, like wide or narrow timber plants, or vinyl planks vs sheet vinyl.
  • Installation method, like floating floors vs. glue-down flooring.

What hard flooring is easiest to clean?

Hybrid, vinyl and laminate flooring are all remarkably easy to maintain. They typically only require sweeping and dry or wet mopping to stay spotless. Timber flooring is also easy to clean on a day-to-day basis but can require refinishing, waxing and polishing to retain its sheen. Whichever hard flooring you choose, the flooring consultants at Carpet Call will make sure you have all the information you need to keep your floors sparkling clean.

What type of hard flooring is best for high-traffic areas?

As a completely scratch-resistant option, hybrid flooring can be a great choice for high-traffic areas. However, a solid, durable hardwood like oak can be refinished for generations to come, making it a worthwhile investment.
