If you are looking for flooring that will work well in a Mornington Peninsula rental property, then this article is for you! We’ll cover popular flooring options and why they’re best suited to the Peninsula. We also have some flooring recommendations to help you find the right flooring for your rental property. You can’t go wrong with these flooring choices!


Carpet flooring is a popular choice in rentals, and for good reason. The right selection of carpet can be suitable for many rooms in your property including the demands of high traffic areas such as hallways, family rooms and living spaces. Carpet is perfect for bedrooms since it also provides warmth underfoot which is important when it comes to the cooler Melbourne months.

Carpet Tiles

If you’re looking for carpet that’s a little more long lasting and low maintenance, then carpet tiles might be your best option. Carpet tiles are extremely durable and easy to replace just a small area of tiles if and when required. We’ve seen some commercial grade carpet tiles last over 20 years without replacing them. Carpet tiles tend to be a little less homely than traditional carpet so they may be best used in rumpus rooms, bungalows or the kids play room.

Laminate Flooring

Laminate flooring is a great alternative to carpet, particularly for homes near the beach that may be prone to sand. There are a number of benefits that laminate flooring brings to your home, which include the ease in which it’s cleaned and its durability. Clix Laminate Plus, Clix Laminate XL, Quick-Step Majestic and the Rustic Range are all very popular options for investment properties.

Timber Flooring

Timber flooring is the original floor covering material and has stood the test of time. Genuine timber flooring is well suited to a number of properties you’ll find throughout the Mornington Peninsula, including Sorrento, Rye, Rosebud and Portsea. Timber flooring has many of the same advantages as laminate flooring so it will usually come down to personal taste or what suits your rental property style. The natural feel of timber floorings also combines very well with other flooring finishes such as carpets.

Hybrid Waterproof Flooring

Like timber flooring, Hybrid Waterproof flooring is a durable flooring option, so it’s ideal for busy rental properties where there may be a lot of people coming and going. If your rental property has a pool or is very close to the beach, you should seriously consider Hybrid Waterproof flooring as an option. It’s also great in wet areas such as kitchens and bathrooms and can withstand areas that experience heavy foot traffic regularly like hallways.
