Whether you're looking to sell your home or renovate your forever home, one of the most impactful ways to increase property value is by updating the flooring in the living areas. There's no doubt that new flooring of any kind will improve the look and value of your home in the short term, but more and more people are searching for low-maintenance flooring that will keep looking great for years to come.

Benefits of epoxy flooring when renovating

Flooring is one of the features that sets the first impression of a home. Your flooring can make your home feel luxurious and bright or dingy and old, so making the right choice of materials, colour and finish is essential.
Imagine a finish that looks as elegant as marble but has the durability of concrete. Epoxy flooring, when installed correctly by a professional, can deliver just that and a whole lot more.

Low maintenance

Maintaining residential epoxy flooring is super easy. Simply mop with warm soapy water. No need to use bleach or other harsh chemicals, as these may compromise the integrity of the flooring and cause discolouration. No expensive products or time and energy-intensive methods are needed to keep your floor looking its best. Furthermore, epoxy floors do not swell or go mouldy when wet, as some timber, bamboo and carpeted flooring solutions do. If you have ever flooded, you will know the issues that can go with these two flooring types.


Over the long term, epoxy flooring is a cost-effective choice compared to other options. It will stand up beautifully to regular human and animal traffic and will last for many years if cleaned regularly. The durable nature of epoxy flooring means it doesn't require regular deep cleaning or repairs that many other flooring solutions do.

Variety of colour options

Whether you're aiming for a neutral base to showcase your furniture or something eye-catching that becomes the showstopping feature - you can achieve it with epoxy flooring. We take the guesswork out of choosing the right colour by providing sample boards so you can see what it will look like in bright and shady areas of your home and under your furniture.

Several finish options

While you have an impressive number of colours and finishes in epoxy flooring, the real fun comes with choosing the finish. You can choose from a pre-mixed design, or let your artistic side emerge and create your own unique flake or metallic finish.

Other things to consider include:

  • Matte, high gloss or custom finish
  • Ease of cleaning
  • Level of slip resistance and impact resistance
  • Level of UV stability
  • Skirting boards and sealing between existing skirting boards and floors
  • For something striking, consider adding a metallic finish to your floor
