Floating floor options
Affordable, hard-wearing choices for DIY installation
Floating floors were developed as an alternative to nailing or adhering materials to a sub floor. The boards literally float and are joined together with a tongue-and-groove system that clicks into position.
They’re sold in different sizes, usually supplied with a finished surface so there’s no need to sand or seal.
Install a floating floor over tiles, concrete, vinyl or existing timber. If laying over a new slab ensure it has completely cured by leaving it for one month per 25mm thickness.
CHOOSING THE DESIGN
The finish depends on the timber species, either real timber or replicated for laminated boards, in tones from warm honey to fawn, brown and rich red.
Matching boards to existing interiors maintains visual continuity and bringing paint samples to a showroom can help you match the tone to walls and ceilings.
Boards come in various widths so select narrow for more vertical lines or wider ones for fewer.
