What is hybrid flooring?
Multi layer hybrid flooring is an innovative, rigid floating floor product which combines the best attributes of laminate and vinyl flooring with the stunning visual appeal of real timber.
Carpet Court have a selection of revolutionary hybrid floating floors on display such as the high-performing Aqua Tuf collection also available in the super-sized Aqua Tuf Longboard range. The remarkable Veles series has an amazing choice of 12 stunning colours and the recently released Pryzm hybrid floors in traditional Australian timber designs bring amazing resilience and beauty to your floors.
The brand new hybrid series, ‘Retreat Aussie’ joins those and other amazing hybrid flooring products available from Carpet Court to bring you resilient, versatile, durable, high-performance floors with incredible aesthetic appeal.
What areas of the home is the Retreat Aussie suitable for?
The appeal of hybrid floating floors is that they have specialised core technology and layered protective coatings which render them 100% waterproof. This means you can install hybrid flooring in your wet areas such as the bathroom and laundry because it won’t swell or warp when it comes into contact with liquids.
You can lay resilient hybrid flooring in the rooms which receive the heaviest foot traffic such as your hallways and family rooms and everywhere else in the home where you need a tough yet beautiful floor. Because it is scratch and fade resistant it is the perfect flooring solution for busy family homes where contemporary door and window designs allow the penetration of direct sunlight.
When you elect to lay the Retreat Aussie series throughout your entire home your floors create soothing visual continuity and seamless flow which is easy on the eye and easy to maintain! No more cupboards filled with different cleaning products for different surfaces, just one durable, easy to clean flooring solution throughout. No more dilemmas trying to match the kitchen or bathroom floor tiles with the adjacent floating floors or carpets in your living areas. One floor, one simple solution.
What colours will I find in the Retreat Aussie range?
The natural oak design of the Aussie Species range is available in four delightful colours bringing warmth and character to any home design.
The rich timber tones of Atherton Spotted Gum feature smoky hues amidst earthy shades, bringing versatility and vitality to your interior colour palette. Yengo Spotted Gum introduces lustrous contrasting forest colours while Toolara Spotted Gum has contemporary appeal. The traditional beauty of age-old Blonde Tasmanian Oak completes a range of breathtaking colours designed with the stunning Australian landscape in mind.
How do you lay hybrid floating floors?
Your new hybrid floating floor can be laid as a DIY project or by the qualified installers from your local Carpet Court store. Floating floors such as the Retreat Aussie hybrid floor are not nailed or glued to the subfloor but simply click or slot together in a click-lock system so that they ‘float’ above the subfloor.
If you intend to lay your hybrid floating floors yourself, seek advice from the experienced, professional staff at your Carpet Court store first. To ensure an optimal, waterproof flooring solution it is vitally important to follow the manufacturer’s instructions in all installation stages, but particularly in the preparation stage. If the floor is improperly installed it can impact on the warranty conditions.
We recommend using your local Carpet Court store’s experienced, professional installers. They will have your new Retreat floating floor professionally laid in no time at all.
How should I care for my Retreat Aussie floor?
While hybrid flooring is incredibly durable, we recommend regular sweeping with a soft indoor broom and vacuuming with a hard floor vacuum attachment to prevent a build-up of dust and debris.
Remove spills, light stains and scuff marks with a damp cloth and mop once a month or as often as necessary using a pH neutral cleaning product. Always follow the manufacturer’s care instructions and do not use solvents or ammonia-based products to ensure years of enjoyment from your Retreat Aussie hybrid floor.
