The look of wood without the hassle or budgetary blow-out. NEO2.0 planks in Refined Oak from Creative Flooring are easy to install and won’t warp or shift under sunlight or over time.

There are a variety of base elements used for plank and tile flooring options in this country, such as MDF. However, a recent introduction from Germany is set to scoop the pool in terms of material advantages and sheer ease of use.

A stable ceramic-based carrier board but lighter and easier to work with Ceramin offers architects and interior designers a fresh material option, says Garth Dye, managing director of Creative Flooring, sole distributor of Ceramin products in New Zealand.

"Ceramin's components are bonded at low temperatures, in a low emissions production process," says Dye. "This contemporary base material has many advantages, including being completely waterproof, robust, lightweight and easy to cut or shape with a Stanley knife. It's also extremely stable and won't shift, or move, when exposed to changes in temperature."

There are three principal products underpinned by this contaminant-free Ceramin base.

Neo.2 is a go-to residential plank and tile flooring option, offered in a variety of sizes. The decor pattern and there are many options is printed directly onto the Ceramin flooring.

The Sono range is mainly in natural-look finishes and is ideally suited to commercial, heavy-traffic floor or wall surfaces.

Ceramin Vario tiles were glued straight over existing floor, flooring, furniture, interior design, tile, wall, gray
Ceramin Vario tiles were glued straight over existing dated wall tiles to create this designer-look bathroom. This simple process transformed the bathroom and saved the homeowner on the time and labour of removing the existing tilework. Plus its extremely rugged nature means the new Vario surfaces will last for decades. Vario is just one of three ranges offered by Creative Flooring that feature the stable, waterproof, easy-to cut and shape Ceramin base.

Last, there is Vario. Offered in a variety of tile formats, this product is ideal for both wet and general areas. It can be laid directly over existing tiles, saving time, hassle and money.
