The flooring specialists

Flooring is a vital design element in any interior and it’s the first thing you will see when you open the door. For expert advice on flooring look no further than Harvey Norman Fountain Gate.

Flooring proprietor Emad Moannes and his team are the experts when it comes to floating floors, carpet and rugs.

Mr Moannes said carpet was still popular with customers, especially in bedrooms as it provides warmth and comfort.

When you’re looking for carpet, take a good look at the different styles. Different textures and styles can create the look you want that will fit your decor and lifestyle.

There are four main carpet styles – plush, twist, level cut loop and loop carpet.

Mr Moannes said home owners should choose a carpet that suits their lifestyle. There are different carpets on the market for those who want a luxurious feel, those families who want a pet-friendly options, those with young children and those households that value an eco-friendly lifestyle.

Floating floors

For a modern aesthetic in living areas the current trend is for floating floors.

Mr Moannes said there had been huge innovation in this area in the last 10 years and floating floors were now durable, look fantastic and were easy to maintain.

“There are plenty of colours and brands in the floating floor board space,“ Mr Moannes said.

Some customers prefer floorboards with a timber surface. This timber is sourced domestically and the boards manufactured overseas.

The second type of floating floor is a hybrid.

“This looks like timber and comes in a huge range of colours,“ Mr Moannes explained.

“Hybrid floor boards can even be laid over the top of ceramic tiles, subject to the condition of the tiles.“

The third option is laminate flooring. Laminate flooring offers natural timber look, is cost-efficient and is an alternative to timber flooring. Laminate flooring is available in a wide range of colours and grains.

Rugs

To decorate a floating floor and add warmth to living areas, Harvey Norman Fountain Gate offers a large selection of rugs.

Rugs come in many sizes and determining the right size of the rug is just as important as finding the right colour and pattern. Harvey Norman offers rugs as large as 2.3 metres by 3.3 metres. Other options are 1.6 metres by 2.9 metres and 1.6 metres by 2.3 metres.

When you’re shopping for a rug, the fibre from which it’s made will be your most important consideration. The kind of fibre determines on the rug’s qualities. Remember that no fibre is right for all situations. Harvey Norman Fountain Gate offers wool, polyester, acrylic and cotton options.
