Engineered wood flooring is one of the most popular flooring options among homeowners and designers alike. It offers a variety of advantages that make it an attractive choice for many different types of projects, from residential to commercial applications. We have a range of wood flooring collections within our Worcester flooring showroom, from Kahrs and Ted Todd, to Panaget and The Wood Flooring Co. And here’s why we love them all…
For starters, engineered wood flooring is more stable than solid hardwood floors due to its construction process. The flooring is composed of several layers of wood joined together, with the top layer being real hardwood, most often oak. This makes engineered wood flooring far more stable than solid wood flooring and less prone to expansion and cracks forming between floor boards. Engineered wood also stands up better to moisture and humidity than solid hardwood floors.
Thanks to this multilayered design, engineered wood flooring has exceptional durability. Its clever construction makes for a long-lasting floor that can withstand the daily wear and tear of high-traffic areas, pets, and children without losing its attractive appearance. A high quality engineered wood floor will last for years to come.
Easy to care for
With proper care and maintenance, engineered wood floors can retain their charm and longevity for many years, making them a smart investment for those who value a beautiful and hardwearing surface underfoot.
Engineered wood flooring is an excellent choice for homeowners seeking a low-maintenance and durable solution for their flooring needs. Cleaning and maintaining engineered wood floors is a breeze, requiring only a simple sweep or vacuum, and the occasional damp mop (never excessively wet mop a wooden floor!).
They can also be easily refinished or sanded down, in case of any surface imperfections or damages. With its supreme ease of maintenance combined with an elegant and timeless appearance, engineered wood flooring is a smart and lasting investment in any home.
Easy to install
In addition to being more durable than solid hardwood floors, engineered wood is also much easier to install. It can be done with either a floating installation, which requires no nails or glue, or a glue-down installation that is more secure. This makes engineered wood flooring a great choice for DIYers and professional floor fitters alike.
In addition, most engineered wood flooring sold today is engineered with a click installation system, which makes for efficient, hassle-free fitting.
Adds warmth to your environment
One of our favourite benefits of engineered wood is the overall effect it can have on a home. As a natural material, an engineered wooden floor will add warmth and is the perfect backdrop for home furnishings and fixtures. The neutral shades and interesting grain of wood flooring means that it will go with almost any interior style and you can also rest assured that it will never go out of fashion.
So much choice!
Engineered wood flooring also comes in many different colours, styles, and textures, allowing homeowners to customise the look of their floors. With its wide range of options, engineered wood flooring is a great way to bring style and sophistication to any room in your home.
So whether your style is contemporary or rustic, there will be a plank which is perfect for your home.
All in all, engineered wood floors offer a variety of benefits that make them an attractive choice for homeowners and designers alike. With its strong construction, easy installation process, and customisable options, it’s no wonder that engineered wood continues to be one of the most popular flooring choices.
