What’s your best floor in Canberra, and how much do your neighbours pay for it?
It’s a question that has perplexed many Canberra residents.
For months, the ABC has been tracking the cost of the best furniture in the city.
But now, a new survey shows that the answer is not as simple as we might think.ABC’s Marketplace has identified more than 3,000 of the most expensive flooring systems in Canberra.
The study, called The Price of the Best, is an attempt to get to the bottom of the question.
It found that, on average, it would cost a family about $300 per year to have their own home’s furniture, and another $600 per year for the furniture of other people’s homes.
While that is cheaper than a similar amount of furniture found in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth, Adelaide and Hobart, it is still not the cheapest.
While it is possible to pay the same amount for a similar number of square feet of flooring with similar materials and finish as you would with a home on the Gold Coast, a much larger flooring system will cost you more than $1,000 more than your home would.ABC Marketplace: Best flooring on sale in Canberra
