There are many types of hardwood flooring available for your home, and it may be confusing when you are looking for hardwood floors for your kitchen, living room or bedroom. You may not be as familiar with engineered hardwood. Here is some information about engineered hardwood floors.
What Is Engineered Hardwood?
Hardwood flooring represents one solid piece of wood that is cut into strips for flooring. Engineered hardwood represents pieces of both hardwood and plywood that is layered on top of each other in thin strips.
Why Might Engineered Hardwood Be Good for My Flooring Choice?
First, engineered hardwood tends to be less expensive than traditional hardwoods, which may make it a more economical choice for you. Engineered hardwood may be the perfect hardwood choice for your large room, such as your living room or great room. Also, engineered hardwoods are great for people who are environmentally conscious. That’s because a lot of engineered hardwoods are made from recycled wood, or wood remainders, so that no piece of wood goes to waste.
Also, engineered hardwoods are more durable and stronger than traditional hardwood flooring. While traditional hardwood floors can be scratched or pitted, it is more difficult to scratch and pit an engineered hardwood floor. They are also moisture and heat resistant, which may make them a perfect choice for your kitchen or sunroom.
One of the best reasons to choose an engineered hardwood floor is because you are able to refinish it again if your taste or colors in your room change. This means an engineered hardwood floor can change as you change lifestyles, tastes, or remodels. If they are properly cared for, your engineered hardwoods can be with you for life.
