Home Living : October 26th 2010
2 HLW - HOME LIVING: WEST, Tuesday, October 26, 2010 Timber all over » ADVERTISING FEATUREHOMELIVING Modern design trends and new technologies have shattered widely- held myths that timber flooring is only suitable in specific areas of a home. Sydney Flooring founder and managing director Bill Durkowyak said there were still certain misconceptions about using timber floors in apartments, upper levels of homes and even in kitchens. ''Any notions of timber flooring being excessively noisy are rooted in a fairly distant past," Mr Durkowyak said. ''Nowadays we have excellent acoustic underlay products which dramatically reduce noise transmission, so you can rest easy knowing that you're not disturbing people in the apartment below just by walking around. ''It's a mistake, also, to think timber flooring needs to stop at the base of the stairs and that there's an imperative to switch to carpet at that point. ''Wooden staircases can be a magnificent feature in their own right and generally enhance the sense of openness and space. ''The sense of flow provided by timber floors enhances the aesthetics and provides a seamless transition from one living space to the next. Timber floors, especially using wide boards, are designed to create a greater sense of continuity and space." Different living areas can be given an individual look and feel by adding distinctive rugs and other furnishings, which can also be updated to accommodate new design trends. ''The kitchen is another misunderstood area when it comes to timber flooring. Many people express concern that the timber in their kitchen could be easily damaged by water and other spillages, when in reality timber is perfect for kitchens due to its durability and ease of cleaning,'' he said. ''In essence, there's hardly a room in the home where timber flooring can't be installed, which means the homeowner ultimately benefits from an even greater variety in flooring options."
