Timeless, practical and hard-wearing, engineered floorboards are a foundational staple in a modern Australian family home.

Enduring and tactile engineered floorboards often play a harmonious role in shaping a project’s overarching aesthetic. Building the perfect backdrop to a contemporary home, we explore the classical elements and functional benefits behind engineered floorboards. We showcase seven of our favourite examples of engineered floorboards in Australian homes, from warm natural oak to light and bright Scandinavian inspired hues.
