What is Hybrid Flooring?

Hybrid flooring is an innovative new type of flooring, bringing the best characteristics of both vinyl and laminate floors to create an improved floating floor. Hybrid floors are made of multiple layers of materials pressed together and come in a wide range of designs and styles. Hybrid floors are also 100% waterproof and suitable for all areas of the house (including the kitchen, and other wet areas).

The top layer is a UV coated wear & tear layer, the second layer is a decorative print with the desired design, and the centre is a composite core board that is waterproof and stable. Finally, there is an acoustic backing that increases foot comfort and reduces sound resonance. Hybrid flooring is an affordable flooring option and has quickly emerged as one of the most popular floorboards across Sydney.

SPC vs WPC Hybrid Flooring

There are two main types of hybrid floors, differentiated by the composition of their core layer:

Stone Plastic Composite (SPC) – the core of the floorboards are made of stone (natural limestone), polyvinyl chloride and stabilisers. SPC floors tend to be slightly more durable, thinner, denser and more affordable than WPC hybrid floors.

Wood Plastic Composite (WPC) – the core of the floorboards are recycled wood and plastic. WPC hybrid floors tend to be thicker, slightly more comfortable underfoot, and slightly pricier than SPC hybrid floors.

We Supply and Install Hybrid Flooring in Sydney & NSW

FloorVenue’s range of hybrid floors come in both SPC and WPC varieties and in a wide range of colours and styles. Our hybrid flooring ranges utilise a rigid plank technology and patented click lock system for higher levels of durability.

Is hybrid flooring any good?

The short answer is yes - hybrid floors are 100% waterproof, highly durable, stylish and affordable. It uses the latest flooring manufacturing technologies to combine the best characteristics of other types of floors – namely, the waterproof nature of vinyl, the beauty of hardwood, and the durability of laminate flooring. However, the drawback is that it’s not made from real timber.

SPC Hybrid Flooring vs WPC Hybrid Flooring

Both SPC and WPC hybrid floors are highly durable and stable, however SPC hybrid flooring is slightly more durable and dense due to its limestone composition. On the other hand, WPC hybrid flooring is slightly softer and quieter underfoot.

Stone Plastic Composite (SPC) Wood Plastic Composite (WPC)
Material Natural Limestone + PVC (polyvinyl chloride) Recycled Wood + Plastic
Durability Slightly More Durable Slightly Less Durable
Density Slightly Denser Slightly Less Dense
Underfoot Slightly Less Comfortable + Quiet Slightly More Comfortable + Quiet
Price Slightly Cheaper Slightly More Expensive

Both types look stunning and are great alternatives to timber flooring.

How much does hybrid flooring cost?

In Australia, hybrid flooring costs from $35/sqm up to $55/sqm for supply only. Installation costs in Australia (in particular Sydney and NSW), generally cost between $25 - $30 per square metre for simple and straightforward installations. At FloorVenue, we are 100% able to beat any quote (on the same quality product) - see why here.

Difference between hybrid and vinyl and laminate flooring?

While both hybrid and vinyl floors are waterproof, the main difference is that hybrid floors are thicker, more rigid, and feel more solid when you walk on them. Laminate flooring lacks the waterproof nature of hybrid and vinyl flooring, but is solid to walk on and more scratch resistant.
