What Flooring Thickness is Best for my House?

Thick Flooring

We get asked the same question too often as to what flooring thickness customers should choose when selecting a flooring option for their residential property. In this article, we try to answer this question.

The thickness of the floor that is appropriate for your home will depend on a number of factors, such as the type of flooring material you choose, the subfloor construction, and the intended use of the space.

For solid timber flooring, a thickness of around 18-22mm is typical. This thickness provides sufficient durability for most residential applications. Thicker boards may be used for commercial or high-traffic areas.

For engineered timber flooring, the thickness of the top layer of solid timber can vary from 3-6mm. A thicker top layer will provide greater durability and allow for more refinishing in the future. However, a thinner top layer may be sufficient for a residential setting where the flooring will not be subjected to heavy wear and tear.

It’s important to consider the subfloor construction when selecting the thickness of your flooring. For example, a concrete subfloor may require a thicker flooring material than a plywood subfloor. It’s also important to consider the intended use of the space. A thicker flooring material may be more appropriate for a high-traffic area, while a thinner material may be suitable for a less frequently used space.

Please keep in mind that the choice of floor thickness is dependent on a range of factors specific to your home and needs. It might be a good idea to consult with your flooring professional or contractor (No.1 Flooring) who can advise you on the best option for your specific situation.
