Choosing Flooring For Your New Home In Whangarei And Northland

Choosing Flooring for Your New Home in Whangarei and Northland

Whenever we enter into any kind of space, be it an office, a house, or even a room, our vision is automatically focused on looking up and ahead of what is front of us. We rarely look down on the surface we are stepping on unless we are prompted to. The floor is the most often ignored part of a structure, and yet, it is one of the most integral parts, aside from the roof and walls, that holds a space together. When you step inside your own house, the floor is that one thing that signifies that you you are finally home.

We at Homeworld, with over 40 years of experience as home builders in Whangarei, have designed and built bespoke, structurally safe, and affordable homes for all of our clients in the Northland region. As Licensed Building Practitioners and Master Builders, we take pride in what we do and are very thorough and meticulous in every aspect of our home design and build processes.

When you give us the privilege to help you plan and construct your dream home, we see to it that every part of your home is well thought out, most especially the floor that you will walk on.

Flooring Type Matters

Choosing the style, colour, and type of your new home flooring will not only make your walking surface aesthetically pleasing but will also determine the amount of time that you would need to spend on its upkeep. As the floor comprises a larger surface area of your home, it is very important that you invest in the type of flooring that suits your lifestyle and needs in the long run.

Aside from aesthetics, you should also consider the comfortability of your preferred floor type. How would the floor feel when you and everyone living with you, including your pets, when walking barefoot?

Another essential factor to consider is the maintenance of your floor. Will it be easy to clean given your day-to-day activities? Will you need special cleaning materials to ensure that it stays neat over time?

These are only a few of the basics that you need to know when deciding on the flooring type for your new home.

As experts in home design and build in NZ, we recommend only the best and suitable flooring type for each of our clients.


SPHC Defined

SPHC refers to Stone Polymer Hybrid Core, a type of composite flooring that is modern, low maintenance, and budget-friendly. As an innovative home builder in NZ, we have been using SPHC flooring, which has the natural look of timber, for the houses of a number of satisfied clients. The highly versatile SPHC may be used indoors and outdoors for the following reasons.

  1. Easy to clean – It is even stain-resistant. There’s no need to use any special cleaning agent and equipment aside from the ones that are commonly available at home.
  2. Waterproof – It is highly resistant to spills and moisture making SPHC ideal for use even in bathrooms, kitchens, laundry, and mudrooms.
  3. Formaldehyde-free – No toxic chemicals or gas were used in making this product.
  4. Anti-slip – This makes SPHC an excellent choice to ensure that both children and the elderly are safe from slips.
  5. Fire-resistant – SPHC falls under the B1 fire rating indicating low flammability.
