What is hybrid flooring?

Recent innovations in flooring have introduced new-age hybrid waterproof flooring solutions. As the name suggests, hybrid flooring is made using two popular flooring techniques — laminate and vinyl. This unifies the best qualities of both floor techniques and makes hybrid flooring a hard-wearing and tough flooring solution. SPC hybrid waterproof flooring withstands moisture like vinyl and is easy to install, like laminate flooring.

This modern and stylish flooring technique has become the go-to for interior designers, builders and homeowners across the country. With an endless list of decorative top layers, hybrid waterproof flooring caters to a whole range of interior design styles and decor themes while being a highly functional flooring choice for all types of housing designs.

What is the hybrid flooring structure?

Hybrid waterproof flooring is constructed with multiple layers of different materials to create a unique and cohesive floorboard. The multi-layered structure of hybrid flooring includes:

  • Top layer — This hard-wearing, scratch and indent resistant layer has an additional UV-resistant coating, minimize fading caused by the sun.
  • Printing layer — This is the design or print layer. It mimics various colours, prints or material finishes in popular varieties such as timber or stone.
  • Board core — The SPC hybrid flooring is made of stone and PVC. This creates the base or body of the hybrid floor.
  • Underlayment — This cushioned layer creates a comfortable underfoot feel and adds advanced acoustic features to the hybrid flooring.

Advantages of hybrid flooring

In recent years, durable hybrid flooring has grown in popularity due to its multiple advantages. These include:

  • Easy to install — It’s straightforward and convenient to install, even if you’re not a DIY pro, a home renovation expert or a flooring installer. The quick and easy installation process makes hybrid flooring an optimal solution for residential and commercial spaces.
  • Waterproof — Taking the best parts of vinyl and laminate, hybrid flooring is a waterproof option. This makes it easy to clean and reduces maintenance time. Due to its waterproof capacity, hybrid flooring is a good choice for kitchens and bars without any risk of splitting or swelling. Our SPC hybrid flooring also features a highly water-resistant IXPE underlay backing making it extremely resistant to water damage or staining.
  • Stylish — Made using advanced printing techniques, hybrid flooring is available in hundreds of prints and colours. This flooring realistically imitates textures and materials, making it perfect for all types of classic interior design trends.
  • Hypoallergenic — Hybrid flooring is hypoallergenic. Unlike carpets, it won’t absorb dust or grime particles, making it a great alternative for those with allergies or asthma.
  • Resistant to mould — Due to the unique manufacturing process, hybrid waterproof flooring is resistant to mould and mildew, making it a top choice for wet areas such as kitchens and bars.
  • Environmentally-friendly — Hybrid flooring doesn’t contain harmful phthalates or heavy metals. Our HydroTuff hybrid flooring carries a Green Star rating for VOC (Volatile Organic Compound emission) and Super E0 rating for formaldehyde emission tested in Australian laboratories.
  • Acoustic overlay — The high-quality IXPE acoustic underlay backing of our SPC hybrid flooring provides acoustic insulation, allowing it to absorb sound. This makes it an excellent option for upstairs rooms and floors.

  • Repair friendly — It’s easy to repair damaged hybrid flooring — simply unclick it, take it out of the setting and seamlessly replace it with an alternate floorboard.
  • Minimal expansion and contraction — While pure vinyl flooring is susceptible to temperature changes, SPC hybrid flooring has been formulated to face hot and cold temperature fluctuations with ease. Hybrid flooring doesn’t create uneven surfaces, swelled up planks or tiles, or lead to hefty repair bills as it withstands rapid temperature changes with minimal expansion and contraction.

Hybrid flooring is worth the investment

Many customers ask us whether hybrid floorboards are worth the cost. Hybrid flooring is more durable than regular vinyl or laminate flooring, making it a wise long-term investment. Combined with its durability, resistance to scratches and waterproof capabilities, hybrid flooring can last for decades to come.

The cost of the innovative hybrid waterproof flooring varies according to colour, size and style. We provide samples of all our hybrid flooring styles so you can find the right option for your space. Our samples are 10cm offcuts, giving you an accurate understanding of how your new floor will look before deciding on a final hybrid flooring design.

Everyday maintenance for your hybrid flooring

While it’s hard-wearing and long-lasting, hybrid flooring needs some basic maintenance and upkeep. This includes vacuuming, sweeping and mopping to get rid of dust, grime and dirt. Even though hybrid flooring is waterproof and resistant to stains, it’s recommended that you clean up accidental spills as soon as they occur. While it has a UV-resistant layer, we also recommend shielding your hybrid flooring from direct sunlight as this can cause it to fade or react to extreme temperature changes.

Which rooms is hybrid flooring most suitable for?

Hybrid flooring is highly versatile and durable, so it’s suitable for most rooms in your home. Whether it’s your living room, bedroom, home office, playroom — hybrid flooring is an excellent way to bring a touch of elegance to your surroundings. 

However, we wouldn’t recommend it for bathrooms. Although it’s waterproof and easy to clean, due to the installation process and potential for complete immersion in bathrooms, water may leak in under the flooring, which could then damage the floor. Therefore, we don’t recommend Hybrid Flooring in bathrooms, but it’s one of our favourite options for any other room in the home. Due to its durability, Hybrid flooring is most suitable for high traffic areas such as entryways, living rooms and hallways or other areas that require frequent cleaning.

Can hybrid flooring be easily cleaned?

Yes. One of the main benefits of hybrid flooring is that it provides the look and feel of hardwood flooring without requiring the same high level of maintenance. Able to be easily vacuumed, swept or mopped, hybrid flooring can also be wiped down with microfibre cloths and mild cleaning products.
