Choosing the best flooring for your space

Hardwood timber flooring lasts a lifetime, so it’s worth taking the time to explore options prior to choosing the best flooring for your space. Here are four important considerations.

1.Timber hardwood look & feel - Timber flooring is a value-added investment for your home. Its natural beauty can act as the foundation of your decor style and give a character that cannot be achieved with any other type of floor covering.

2. Practicality - Timber flooring choices include options with various colours, tones, and patterns. Floors that are too light, too dark or the same all over tend to show up every speck of dust that floats in the door, so it’s worth considering hardwoods such as spotted gum, oak, and blackbutt for starters.

3. Construction - You probably want a timber floor that won’t warp, shrink, or bow, and engineered timber is the answer. The engineered under-layers stop the top hardwood from shifting and keep the floorboards straight and true for many years of as-new satisfaction.

4. Longevity - Engineered spotted gum hardwood floors from Carpet Court come with a long warranty so you can purchase with confidence. These floors are designed to last a lifetime. In addition, the thicker the wear layer, the more times the floor can be sanded back and re-finished, so your flooring can always be in showroom condition.

Naturally beautiful flooring

There are several factors that contribute to naturally beautiful flooring. Whatever flooring statement you want to make, Carpet Court can make it happen for you with high feature grade timber flooring. Special features to look for include:

  • Knots and grain structure, such as gum veins and wavy fiddleback patterns
  • The texture and hardness, ascertained by the wood’s Janka rating
  • The colour, which can range from pale grey to chocolate brown
  • The plank width and pattern, including straight plank, chevron, or herringbone
  • Alternatively, choose standard grade hardwood that shows selective gum veins, burls, insect trails and other unusual grain effects. Nothing beats the visual appeal and warm tones of genuine hardwood timber flooring.

Key features and attributes of Spotted timber Gum

Spotted gum is a premium native hardwood with a striking appearance. It is also very durable and strong, making it ideal for structural, exterior, and interior applications. Spotted gum is well-known for its back-sawn grain structure, attractive markings, and vibrant colours.

The heartwood of spotted gum ranges from light brown to dark red-brown hues. Sapwood is usually white to light brown in colour. The presence of a wavy grain can result in an attractive fiddleback figure. Gum veins are common characteristics in most eucalypt hardwoods, including spotted gum. This is a popular choice flooring timber with a lot of character.

Durable and easy to maintain

A rustic and textured floor will hide its own imperfections. Any wear over time will only add more character, although an engineered timber floor with thick wear layer can be sanded back several times to achieve showroom flooring quality.

Dent resistance in timber flooring is dependent on the species of the timber and the finish. Quality Carpet Court timbers such as spotted gum and oak are hard, making them highly sought after as flooring timbers.

Finishes vary between manufacturers, with no universal scale for measuring their hardness. Stain resistance is dependent on the finish type and level of texture in the flooring. Speak to your local Carpet Court flooring professional about durable and easily maintained flooring for your project.

Spotted Gum timber flooring prices

Modern engineered spotted gum flooring is comparable in price to traditional solid timber flooring of equivalent thickness. The wear layer thickness will also impact the price of engineered flooring. The thicker the product and wear layer, the more expensive the flooring will be.

Carpet Court showcases an extensive flooring product range for almost any budget. Your chosen species also affects the price. Spotted Gum, Blackbutt and Oak, for example, are readily available and affordable options at Carpet Court.

Installation of your new floors

Spotted gum tongue and groove wood flooring installation can be performed by a DIY expert, although professional floor laying services such as those available from Carpet Court are generally recommended. The flooring professionals will accurately fit your new floorboards around doors, skirting, architraves, and other fixtures.

It’s also important to understand the subfloor you have, as this will impact the possibility of adding features such as insulation and underfloor heating. Plywood and chipboard sub-bases are ideal for laying engineered floorboards on.

Pet Friendly flooring options

Natural hardwood floors are hygienic. The smooth, hard surface repels dust, bacteria, and odours, making spotted gum a great pet-friendly flooring choice. Explore non-toxic hardwood flooring at Carpet Court if you have active young children and playful pets.

Alternatives to spotted gum include corymbia eucalypt, blackbutt and oak flooring, available in lots of colours, tones, and grain structures for every type of Australian home.
