Clarendon’s Guide to Sustainable Flooring Options

You can now give your new Clarendon home a flooring makeover that's not only beautiful, but also keeps your energy bill to a minimum. There are lots of things to consider when choosing the right materials for your floors, such as the orientation of the house, the external and internal colour scheme and its overall thermal performance.

Lisa Haddad, Lifestyle Studio Manager said Clarendon is proud to offer a wide range of flooring options to suit any customer's style and needs. “Choosing the right flooring for your Clarendon home is not just about aesthetics; it's also about making sustainable and conscious choices," Lisa explained.

“By understanding how your flooring options align with the principles of the new BASIX regulations, you can create a beautiful, eco-friendly, and energy-efficient living space."

Laminate flooring BASIX compliance Clarendon Homes

Laminate with luxury

A laminate flooring system has built-in layers that ensure it is moisture-resistant and balanced. "For those looking to go one step further, laminate flooring is an excellent option,” said Lisa. “It often incorporates recycled materials, is low-maintenance, and helps create a healthier indoor environment. Also, it offers a wide range of design options that can enhance the look and feel of your home.”

Hybrid flooring options 7 star Clarendon Homes

Hybrid flooring: The best of both worlds

If you like the look of laminate flooring but would prefer to opt for something a bit hardier, hybrid floors might be the right choice for you. Hybrid floors combine laminate and vinyl to make a truly hard-wearing floor option. Hybrid flooring is a long-term investment thanks to its strength, has better water resistance than laminate and sustainable core. This makes it a perfect choice for eco-conscious homeowners who value sustainability but don’t want to compromise on durability.

In some cases, you might want to explore alternative flooring options to create a warm and cosy atmosphere in your home. Our experts can help you discover options for laminate flooring, hybrid flooring, timeless timber flooring and more. We have a range of options that suit your lifestyle, all the while meeting the new BASIX 7-star standard.
