5 Perfect Places for Waterproof Flooring

Published: January 13, 2020


It’s no secret that Australian homes love an open plan layout. It makes sense for the climate, the casual home-dining experience and the way we live in general. Having waterproof flooring in these spaces allows for a completely seamless look and feel. Splashing water and liquids around the kitchen in no drama for products like hybrid flooring which is 100% waterproof.
