Top 10 tips installing hybrid flooring from Imperial Flooring Australia

At Imperial Flooring Australia, we provide excellent hybrid flooring options that are easy to install . Here's a step-by-step guide on how to install hybrid flooring:

  1. Prepare the Subfloor: Ensure that the subfloor is clean, dry, and level. Remove any debris and make any necessary repairs.

  2. Subfloor Flatness Check: Check the subfloor flatness before proceeding with any installation: Using a minimum 2metre straight edge or laser level. Any floor uneven must be rectified to manufacturer's subfloor flatness tolerance guidelines.

  3. Check for Moisture: Moisture problems of the subfloor must be thoroughly checked. Any moisture issues must be resolved before installation by installing a moisture barrier. New concrete subfloors must cure for at least 60 days before the installation. 

  4. Measure and Plan: Measure the room to determine how many planks you'll need. Plan the layout to avoid narrow pieces at the edges of the room.

  5. Install First Row: Start in a corner of the room and lay the first row of planks with the tongue side facing the wall. Use spacers to maintain an expansion gap.

  6. Install Subsequent Rows: Click the planks together, working from left to right. Stagger the joints of adjacent rows for a more natural look.

  7. Cut Planks as Needed: Use a saw to cut planks to fit at the beginning and end of each row.

  8. Install Last Row: Measure and cut planks to fit in the final row, leaving an expansion gap.

  9. Install Transition Strips: Add transition strips at doorways and other openings to create a smooth transition between rooms if required.

  10. Finishing Touches: Remove spacers, install skirting boards or scotia trims, and enjoy your new stunning hybrid flooring from Imperial Flooring Australia. If you have any concerns or questions, feel free to contact our customer service team for additional support.


It's important to follow the manufacturer's instructions and use the recommended tools and materials for the installation. If you're unsure or uncomfortable with DIY installation, we recommend consulting a professional installer. Imperial Flooring Australia also offers installation services for your convenience.
