Choosing the right timber flooring for your Perth home

Choosing the right timber flooring for your Perth home

Trying to decide which timber flooring to install in your Perth home? There are so many options available, so which is the right choice for you?

There are a few points Perth customers should consider when purchasing the right timber flooring, here are a couple. Our team of floor sanding experts in Perth with over 20 years of experience offer advice and knowledge when selecting the right timber for your floors.


Does your Perth home suit light or dark coloured timber best? Light coloured timber typically suit Perth’s “beach” homes better, whereas the darker timbers work well in a modern style home.

Location of your home:

Do you live in one of Perth’s bushfire prone areas? Maybe you should consider one of the 7 approved timbers appropriate for houses located in bushfire prone areas, eg: Blackbutt Timber Floors.

Grain Appearance:

Do you prefer the appearance of a timber with imperfections and character or a smooth timber with minimal features? Consider if your home needs timber flooring that commends the room or one that becomes the feature in that room.


Depending on which timber flooring you decide upon, the cost can vary immensely. Using different woods in different rooms helps to keep the costs down.


Some floor types are higher maintenance than others. You should also consider the amount of traffic that your floor will have as this may determine which floorboards are best suited to that area.
