At Carpet Call, you can choose from many types of flooring solutions for your interior spaces — from elegant hardwood to modern materials that create the same look for less.
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.
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 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.
