Floating floors "float" on top of the sub-floor below, meaning they are not directly attached (by means of nails or glue) to the sub-floor.

Floating floors get installed over solid timber floors, concrete slabs, and other structural subfloors.

First, an underlay is placed over the subfloor. Then the planks are locked to each other or glued to each other if it is a tongue and groove product.

The planks are not glued or nailed to the subfloor. A small gap is left around any edges to allow for expansion.

Aside from carpet, there are several options if cosy comfort is a priority when it comes to flooring. Solid or engineered timber makes an excellent option, along with hybrid, vinyl, or laminate (as long as they are installed with a dense, high-quality underlayment).

To make any floor feel warmer, try adding a high-quality rug, letting some sunlight in, and sealing any cracks in your walls or under doors. If you'd like to learn more about the warmest flooring choices, feel free to contact us or check out our in-depth blog on the subject.

Style & Design

Blackbutt is classified as a hardwood. It has a Janka rating of 9.1, which indicates the strength and durability of timber species. Although blackbutt has a fast growth rate, it develops strong wood.

Blackbutt has a much lighter colour compared to many other popular hardwood timbers. This unique timber features golden brown hues and creamy brown tones, with lovely gum veins and heartwood variations. Overall, colour can vary between different brands and flooring types. For example, a pinkish quality is present in some styles. The natural timber typically has an even colour no matter which variation you choose.

Using blackbutt in flooring helps bring a little piece of classic Australian style and tone into a space. A native species to Australia, blackbutt is naturally well-adapted to the variability of the Australian climate. Plus, its relatively low-maintenance design makes it great for residential use.

This flooring is hardy, but features a light, pleasant colour with golden and pale brown tones. Placing it in living spaces, hallways, and kitchens, where foot traffic is at its peak is ideal. But it also works well to add lightness to enclosed rooms, like offices and bedrooms.

Blackbutt flooring typically has a busier appearance compared to spotted gum styles. Its lighter hardwood colour features unique knots, veins, and other markings in the grain. Spotted gum is also usually darker in tone with more golden tones. Both have a similar price point, so the choice truly comes down to your stylistic preference.

Blackbutt is favored by designers and builders due to its lovely, unique variations in colour, texture, and style. Although it is known for its classic golden and pale brown hues, blackbutt varies a lot, which allows for plenty of creative potential. Staining and polishing your blackbutt flooring can help to create a different look to fit your interior perfectly.
