Cost-effective floating timber flooring

The term ‘floating floor’ describes the method of flooring installation, rather than the product itself. Unlike floorboards, a floating timber floor does not attach to the subfloor beneath. Individual planks or floorboards are attached to one another.

This pre-finished engineered timber flooring doesn’t require sanding or polishing and is the cost-effective alternative to solid hardwood floorboards. DIY homeowners choose floating timber flooring as a high quality product that offers a doable installation method for even more savings.

Benefits of floating timber floorboards

Floating hardwood floors are durable, stylish and suitable for high-traffic areas of the home or office. They bring a classic timeless beauty to any interior space and can be adapted with design style and materials to match your décor. The addition of rugs serves to soften and insulate living rooms, hallways and bedrooms for ultimate contemporary appeal. Here are some important benefits of floating timber floorboards.

Can be glued down - Floating engineered timber floors can be glued down over dry concrete slabs or a wooden subfloor. Ask your Carpet Court consultant if this method is suitable for your chosen product.

The look and feel of solid timber - This flooring feels the same as a solid timber floor to walk on. Once installed, the sturdy base layer is concealed and the solid timber top shown. For a price that compares favourably to hardwood, engineered floating timber floors will add the same resale value to your home.

Lots of flooring options - Engineered flooring is available in a number of different widths, lengths and thicknesses. It’s available pre-finished in a variety of natural timbers such as Blackbutt, Spotted Gum and natural Oak, and there’s no need for additional sanding or finishing.

Save precious hardwoods - Most floating timber floors use only around one third of the amount of solid hardwood compared to solid timber flooring. Carpet Court engineered flooring is the sustainable alternative to milling precious hardwoods.

Suit your budget - Floating timber flooring prices compare favourably with solid timber flooring. Thickness directly affects the price, and there are thinner options for smaller budgets.

Faster to install - Floating timber flooring products are machined to a high standard and easily installed with the quick-step tongue and groove method. The engineered boards don’t swell with moisture and they fit together smoothly.

Less wastage - With engineered flooring, you can use every piece of flooring purchased as it has been graded with no cracks, loose knots or other structural defects.

Installing your new flooring

Floating wood floors can be glued and are relatively simple to lay, making them an ideal DIY project. The expert team at Carpet Court can also have your new floating wood floor expertly laid in no time. Individual boards or planks are either glued to one another or slotted together in a click-lock system. Additional optional Carpet Court services include:

  • furniture moving
  • floor levelling
  • old floor removal service

Cost of timber flooring

The cost of your floating floor depends on the size of your room and type and style of your ideal floating floor. Carpet Court offers a huge range of floating floor timber products in various tones and looks to suit every home or commercial space.

Commercial timber flooring available

Take the time to discuss flooring for your commercial premises with a Carpet Court flooring expert. Considerations include:

  • Your commercial operation. Is it a busy public business or private office space?
  • Sound and insulation. Do you need floating timber floors that are soft underfoot?
  • Flooring design and style. Do you want, plank, parquetry or herringbone style?
  • Cleaning requirements. Do you need flooring that’s easy to clean?
  • Environmental concerns. Does your premises need warming or cooling features?

There are lots of hardwood timber, vinyl, laminate and hybrid flooring options available at Carpet Court. For example, natural timber hardwood flooring is ideal in executive offices, while seamless vinyl sheet flooring is the right choice for medical, school, industrial and care environments.

Pet Friendly Flooring for your home

Whether you’re purchasing, building or renovating, it’s important to choose the right type of flooring. This includes pet-friendly flooring that can handle tough treatment. Floating floorboards are a great solution as they have a hard-wearing engineered water resistant top layer. Pet-friendly flooring should be:

  • Scratch resistant
  • Stain resistant
  • Comfortable and offer traction for active animals
