Renovating apartments can be a tricky task, which is why more and more Gold Coast homeowners are choosing to engage with a professional Interior Designer. 

One Source Flooring was selected by Earthborne by Design to provide flooring solutions for a renovation project in Burleigh Heads. Apartment renovations can often be limiting because in most cases as walls cannot be moved to improve the existing layout and services (such as plumbing) have to remain in-place. 

The project called for a complete “refresh” of the dated beachfront apartment. The client’s brief was to create a relaxed, comfortable coastal theme for their home away from home. The flooring also needed to be compliant for apartment living.

Creating a Functional Kitchen

When Earthborne first inspected this project prior to the renovation, the kitchen felt disproportionately large for the space. It was also ‘disjointed’ from the rest of the room which can be a result of using different flooring within a small space.

Earthborne by Design created a new u-shaped kitchen and swapped the sink and cooking zones. To improve continuity throughout the kitchen and adjoining living and dining areas, our team installed Prestige Oak by Preference Floors in colour, Parana.

Benefits of Timber Flooring:

Timber flooring is not only beautiful, but also comes with a range of benefits. These includes:
  • Timber flooring is durable and strong, generally outlasting cheaper flooring solutions. 
  • Well-installed and well-maintained timber flooring can increase the value of your property.
  • Timber flooring adds beautiful aesthetics to your home and comes in a variety of types and finishes.
  • Engineered timber floors are primarily made from plantation-grown trees, making them a more sustainable timber option. 

The timber flooring was also used throughout the living and dining areas as well as the entry and halls. We worked along side interior designers to supply and install the timber flooring for this Gold Coast renovation.

Cosy Bedrooms with Cosy Carpet

The bedrooms in the apartment required carpet that was not only cosy, but also acted as a natural insulator for the warm Gold Coast climate and noise reduction for the apartment below. A beautiful wool carpet by Victoria Carpets was selected, in style Everest and colour, Mirage.

Victoria Carpets manufacture their carpet right here in Australia and Everest comes with a 15 Year Limited Residential Wear Warranty—making it a great solution for this project.

Benefits of Wool Carpet

There are plenty of reasons why you should consider installing wool carpet in your apartment renovation (outside of it being extremely cosy). These include:

  • Wool carpet is resilient and wears slower than carpets made from fibres like polypropylene.
  • Wool carpet is hypoallergenic and helps absorb common airborne contaminants.
  • Wool carpet is a natural insulator, keeping rooms cool in summer and warm in winter.
  • Wool carpet is sustainable and is produced from natural resources.
