Both timber floorboards and tiles are available in a wide range of styles and designs from a variety of sources, so the cost of both flooring options is going to vary widely.
The price difference may come down to the installation costs. Our installers can lay your beautiful timber floors with the tongue & groove design that allow them to be laid in a floating floor fashion.

The flooring company Brisbane people choose based on product availability, quality, price and service is Carpet Court.
Solid timber vs engineered timber
Solid timber floors are a luxurious flooring option not always within the budget of the average Brisbane household. Solid timber floors require more installation time and effort than floating floors, so they are a more expensive option.
Engineered timber flooring is designed with a layer of natural hardwood, layers of protective coatings and base layers of high density fibreboard. They look, feel and sound as luxurious as solid timber floorboards but they are easier and cheaper to install.
The term 'floating floors' really refers to the way hardwood floors are installed, not what they are made of. Floating floors are fixed to each other not to the subfloor, hence the expression 'floating'.
Made with engineered timber, laminate, hybrid or vinyl, floating floors are a popular choice.
Laminate, Hybrid and Vinyl flooring
Popular flooring products for Brisbane homes include floating laminate, hybrid and vinyl flooring. These flooring products suit Queensland's climate, offering excellent durability and moisture resistance.
Laminate, hybrid and vinyl floors also offer the luxurious look of real timber for a fraction of the price.
