Local Inspiration- The Beauty of Australian Timber
Australia has some of the most beautiful natural environments in the world, so it comes as no surprise that our timbers are highly sought after. Timber floors can be found throughout Australian homes as they work well with the way we live. They suit the popular open plan style and flow from inside to the outdoors, where we love to entertain and relax. In small spaces they offer practicality, beauty and a sense of scale. Australian species work particularly well, reflecting the natural landscape we live in or desire to live near.
Native timber species can be found across a broad range of Flooring Xtra products, from solid timber through to hybrid flooring technology. Each has their own benefits and every home will have specific requirements when looking for new hard flooring. Budget, practicality and application are just three factors a home-owner would consider.
Solid timber flooring in the Australian Species ranges offers a beautiful and authentic look for modern and classic homes. The “real thing” cannot be beaten here, and those who gravitate towards it enjoy the unique characteristics of the timber and the innate quality of our local product. Timber transforms spaces. It elevates them in a design sense as well as increasing liveability. Timber, if cared for properly, can be in place and loved for years to come. It’s durable, easy to maintain and increases the value of the home.
Timber flooring tends to sit on the higher end of the budget scale, so for those seeking the look and feel of real Australian timber but on a more conservative budget, there’s wonderful hybrid flooring style to consider. With significant advancements in technology, hybrid flooring combines the best qualities of laminate and vinyl to create a flooring that looks great and is a breeze to clean (and waterproof!). The designs are incredible too, with many Australian species inspiring hybrid flooring ranges. Enjoy the look of authentic timber without the price tag.
