Why Australians are choosing engineered timber flooring

An engineered floor conserves precious hardwood timber by using only around one third as much hardwood as a solid timber floor. This revolutionary flooring is hugely popular in homes and businesses in Sydney, Melbourne and Australia-wide. Here are a few reasons to choose engineered flooring products.

Easy to lay - Engineered timber floors can be glued directly onto a concrete slab or subfloor. This saves time and money, and is an ideal project for DIY experts.

The feel of solid timber - This flooring feels just like a solid timber floor. Plus, engineered timber flooring offers the same resale value to your home as traditional hardwood flooring.

Flooring options - Carpet Court offers a number of different engineered flooring widths, lengths and thicknesses so you can achieve the results you hope for.

Sustainable hardwoods - Engineered timber floors use only around one third of the amount of solid hardwood compared to traditional solid flooring.

Cost effective - Carpet Court engineered timber flooring prices compare favourably with solid timber flooring. Thickness directly affects the price, and you can budget accordingly.

Ease of installation - These flooring products are accurately machined for easy tongue and groove installation. The engineered boards fit together without additional machining.

No wastage - Engineered timber flooring is graded with zero cracks, knots or other defects, so you can utilise every piece of flooring you purchase.

Pet friendly engineered timber flooring for your home

Pets are important family members worth considering when purchasing flooring for your new home or renovation project. You will need flooring that can handle:

  • Sharp claws and nails
  • Spills and stains
  • Active, adventurous and playful animals

Floating engineered timber floorboards are a great solution. They are hard-wearing and built tough, with a water resistant top layer. Alternatives to hardwood timber flooring are available also, including vinyl flooring, laminate flooring and hybrid flooring products specially constructed for wide-ranging uses.

Speak with a Carpet Court flooring specialist about pet friendly flooring products for your home.

Colours trending in 2022

Light and cheerful aesthetics are trending at present, and Carpet Court has lots of options to choose from. Choices include Arctic White European Oak, Loire Oak and Aspen Grey Oak. The cool and modern look is turning heads in 2022, although choosing flooring material for your home will generally come down to a few factors, such as:

  • Your location
  • Your personal preference
  • Your lifestyle
  • Your budget
  • Your home’s character

Trends may come and go, but a home can be in the family for generations. If yours is a traditional heritage-style home, it’s generally worth sticking with natural timber patterns and styles that match your home’s architecture and décor.

Sustainable flooring with a solid timber appearance

Homeowners wanting natural materials and a luxurious look appreciate the appeal of engineered timber flooring. The best flooring products available at Carpet Court are beautiful, durable and eco-friendly; perfect for the sustainable approach.

The natural hardwood top and multi-ply base core provide advantages that include:

  • High water resistance
  • Consistent stability
  • Dent and scratch resistance

These floors are designed and manufactured to last for decades. That’s why Carpet Court offers an extended warranty, so you can purchase with confidence.

Showroom quality engineered timber vs laminate flooring

Carpet Court offers an extensive selection of quality flooring for a wide range of residential, business and commercial applications. Vinyl and laminate, for example, are budget-friendly flooring options that look great and perform optimally.

Laminate floating flooring has a hard-wearing protective surface layer that provides scratch and fade resistance. This versatile flooring solution is great in kitchens, living rooms, dining rooms and hallways because of its high level of resilience and ease of maintenance.

Engineered timber is also resilient and low maintenance but offers just a little more luxury. You can’t beat the warmth and luster of natural Australian or European hardwood timber. Engineered timber floors are the real deal, with classic, timeless beauty other flooring products can’t quite match, although they do come close.

Engineered timber flooring in kitchens

Wood flooring can provide continuity throughout the entire home, from living rooms and bedrooms to dining and cooking spaces. Many kitchens incorporate soft mats in cooking zones to add a little more comfort underfoot as well as protect the natural hardwood.

Timber flooring is easy to clean with a soft broom or damp mop. However, it’s advisable to spot clean asap to ensure a stain-free surface long-term. Timber flooring products add character in any room, even if they show a little wear over time. It’s all part of their natural appeal.

In addition, high quality engineered timber flooring from Carpet Court is thick enough to be sanded several times during its lifespan. In other words, you can turn back the clock and restore as-new condition to your natural hardwood flooring.

Caring for your new engineered timber floors

Engineered timber is hardwearing and easy to care for. Speak to a Carpet Court flooring expert regarding the appropriate wood flooring cleaner compatible with your new floor. However, some of the best-looking wood floors in older buildings are well worn with scratches and other imperfections that have built up over time.

In some cases, this can be an advantage, as they have a sought-after lived-in character. In fact, some brand new wood floors try to replicate this distressed wood floor look.

How do you maintain your new engineered timber flooring?

Here are a few tips to get you started. You can check out our cleaning and care guide for more information.

  • Sweep with a soft bristle broom
  • Mop with a lightly dampened soft mop. Don’t use too much water
  • Spot clean with a soft cloth and approved wood floor cleaning solution
  • Clean shoes on abrasive mats at external doors if wearing shoes inside the home
  • Use felt pads on furniture feet
  • Lift furniture when relocating it. Don’t drag.

Why should I choose engineered timber for my home?

Engineered timber flooring has a top layer of natural hardwood beneath several layers of protective coatings which gives it the same luxurious look and feel of solid timber floorboards. The difference is in the cost, which is generally a lot less than the price tag attached to solid timber floorboards.

There are further benefits to choosing engineered hardwood floors over solid timber floors, such as superior stability in conditions which might otherwise cause solid timber boards to move, warp or fade.

Engineered wood flooring is able to be laid with marginal gaps intentionally provided for natural contraction and expansion, which occurs with far less significance in the layered floating structure than in solid floorboards. It is much quicker and easier to install than solid boards, saving time and money.

Can Carpet Court help me select the right kind of engineered timber?

Of course! Each store in Carpet Court’s growing network of over 130 stores right across Australia is independently owned and operated by experienced, knowledgeable and passionate Australians. They understand the conditions in your local environment which might impact on your choice of flooring. Some stores offer interior design consultations, whereas all offer you the benefit of years of knowledge built on personal experience.

Don’t be surprised if they ask you questions about your family, pets, lifestyle and location. The answers to these questions help them to guide you towards the best kind of floating floor for your home.

Is engineered timber better than laminate flooring?

While laminate offers a more budget-friendly flooring option, a high quality engineered timber floor and a high quality laminate floor each come into their own in the right environment.

The layered construction of laminate floating flooring carries a hard-wearing surface layer which provides a high level of scratch and fade resistance. This versatile flooring solution is particularly suited to kitchens, living and dining rooms, and hallways because of its high level of resilience and ease of maintenance.

Engineered timber is also highly resilient, low maintenance but offers just a little more luxury for your money, displaying a refined elegance and a sophisticated finish. You can’t beat the warmth and lustre of natural, hardwood Australian or European timber.

Engineered timber floors are durable, traditional and have that elusive something special – a classic, timeless beauty which other flooring products can’t quite match, although they do come close.

Can I use engineered timber in my kitchen?

Yes, hardwearing engineered timber is a popular choice for the living areas of today’s contemporary homes, including kitchens.

In the open-plan modern home design wood flooring provides a beautiful, continuous and luxurious foundation to the living, dining and cooking spaces broken only by the selective inclusion of rugs to create zoned living spaces.

If you are concerned about engineered timber flooring in your kitchen, a small rug in natural fibres looks amazing in front of the kitchen bench and adds a little protection – or peace of mind if you need it.

Wood flooring is more forgiving than tiles for those hours spent standing at the kitchen bench - and on the odd dish that inevitably hits the ground – yet it is more enduring than many other flooring options.

How do I care for my engineered timber floor?

The beauty of engineered timber is that it is not just hardwearing but so easy to care for.

Sweep up the dust and dirt regularly with a soft indoor broom or vacuum using a hardwood floor brush attachment. Liquid spills should be wiped up quickly and for a more thorough clean your engineered timber floors can be dry mopped or cleaned with a damp mop when needed.
