You are probably aware that engineered wood is far more popular that solid wood flooring. It is more readily available and there is far more choice when it comes to engineered species, styles and sizes of planks. But do you know why it is the favourite choice?
Why engineered wood flooring is so popular?
Here are the main reasons why people decide to choose engineered wood flooring over solid wood flooring:
- You will find engineered wood at a much more cost-effective price compared to solid wood flooring.
- It gives you the appearance and natural feel of a real wooden floor without all of the disadvantages of solid wood.
- Once you have installed engineered hardwood flooring, you will find it almost impossible to tell apart from solid wood.
- The reality is that you are walking on a top layer of solid wood flooring, just with an engineered base (which no-one sees).
- Engineered wood flooring can be floated over an underlay or fixed into position if you would prefer.
- It is really easy to install and most come with a click fitting system.
- You have a wide range of species of wood, colours and surface finishes and plank sizes to choose from.
- You have the choice of plank style flooring, or parquet block, or chevron style.
- As engineered wood flooring is dimensionally stable, it can be made into much wider and longer planks than solid wood.
- You are able to use engineered hardwood with an underfloor heating system, and in rooms where temperatures fluctuate, such as conservatories or rooms with large amounts of glazing.
- It is very versatile; you can use engineered wood flooring in almost any room in your home.
- You will notice how easy it is to look after and keep clean. For tips and advice on looking after a wooden floor, have a look at our wood flooring cleaning and maintenance guide.
