Our flooring is featured throughout a multi-award winning home in Darwin, Australia!
- 01 October 2012
The home design efforts of Darwin locals Trevor and Sally Edwards have shone out from all houses entered Northern Territory wide to claim top prize in not one but three categories at the recent Master Builders Association Awards held at the Darwin Convention Centre.
The open plan, Balinese style residence was awarded Best Project Home under $800k, Best Overall Tropical Design and Overall Best Home and showcases a range of innovative materials throughout.
When considering flooring options for the project, home owner Trevor Edwards, who has 32 years’ experience in the flooring industry and is Managing Director of Darwin Carpets and Vinyls in Winnellie, felt that Karndean Designflooring was a natural choice, providing versatility and ease of maintenance.
“We knew we wanted something of quality that looked great but without the hassle and tedious maintenance that was required with traditional wood flooring. Karndean Designflooring was the perfect choice. The floors are now a main feature of our home and we have had so many people commenting about how fantastic they look” said Trevor, who chose Hickory Paprika from the Art Select Wood collection.
“Each design is created based on the intricate grain details in real wood, meaning that my floor looks just like real wood but is much more durable and a breeze to clean with a hot mop. It’s been especially great with my three dogs who put the floor through its paces every day. I’d definitely recommend it to anyone currently considering new flooring for their home” continues Trevor.
