Cosy Carpet

Carpet is super soft underfoot, making it perfect for a place where you want to relax and feel comfortable. It’s like having a cosy blanket for your feet!

Not only that, but it also helps keep the noise level down and the room warm. Plus, with so many colours and patterns to choose from, you’ll be sure to find the perfect match for your home’s theme.


We have a few different carpet styles to choose from which are available in a huge range of colours:

  • First View – Soft feel, cut pile twist style
  • Rosaline – Chunky loop style
  • Summit Point – Textured tufted loop pile style

Value-Packed Vinyl

Vinyl sheet flooring is a popular choice for many first homeowners because of its versatility and affordability. Vinyl sheet flooring is available in a wide range of colours, making it easy to find the perfect match for the aesthetic of your home! Vinyl sheet flooring is easy to install and maintain, so you can enjoy your new floors with minimal fuss.


Vinyl planks mimic the look of hardwood flooring and are a cost-effective alternative to real hardwood. Whereas hybrid flooring is a combination of laminate and vinyl. Both vinyl planks and hybrid flooring are easy to install and maintain, making them a great option for high traffic areas. Just a heads up, vinyl planks and hybrid flooring are an upgrade option and tend to be more expensive than other flooring options.

Terrific Tiles

While tiles are most often used in bathrooms and laundries, tiles can also work well in living areas! Particularly for homes in warmer climates and coastal locations. Featuring a hard, solid surface that does not attract or hold onto dirt, dust, or allergens, tiles are simple to clean, and will stand up to the rigours of everyday life with ease. It’s worth noting that tiles are an upgrade option, however the durability and design options can make the investment well worth it in the long run.
