How do I choose flooring?
Canberra homes experience quite a variation in temperature from very hot summers to freezing cold winters, so floors with good insulative properties will work well for you.
Also consider your home design and which floor areas you are covering. In modern open-plan environments waterproof flooring such as Carpet Court’s range of hybrid floating floors are a great option as they can enhance the spacious feel that comes with the seamless flow of open plan living. Hybrid floors are waterproof and can be laid throughout the home including wet areas like laundries and bathrooms.
For sensual and highly tactile appeal you can’t go past a beautifully luxurious wool or synthetic fibre carpet in traditional or contemporary design, while authentic timber flooring adds timeless appeal and durability to both traditional and modern Canberra homes.
Chat with the experienced and helpful team at your local Carpet Court store and browse the wide range of flooring products including luxury vinyl planks, hybrid, timber and vinyl flooring, laminate flooring and stunning carpets to ensure you choose the right flooring for your property.
Is laminate flooring waterproof?
Most laminate floors are not 100% waterproof and as such are not recommended for wet areas of the home. However, some specific laminate products such as Aquastop AC5 are highly water resistant and manufactured to withstand moisture from minor household spills and pet accidents for at least 72 hours.
Other laminate floors such as Godfrey Hirst’s Elegant XL do carry a water resistance warranty which covers spills as long as they are cleaned up within a specified time period, as long as the floors are installed in accordance with the Godfrey Hirst ‘Laminate Wet Area Installation’ instructions.
