Benefits of Engineered Wood Flooring
If you are looking at a little spruce up in one of the rooms in your home, you could start by looking at the flooring. This can make a big difference without needing a full revamp.
If you are considering changing a room from a carpet, you could consider engineered wood flooring. There are lots of advantages to fitting engineered wood flooring. The first being that it is a less expensive option than solid wood flooring. This is great if you are looking at refreshing a room on a budget.
The great thing about engineered wood flooring is that although it is a more cost-effective option, it doesn’t look like it. It’s really hard to tell the difference between solid wood and engineered wood. That’s because it actually has a layer of real wood on top, so the finish is as you would expect a solid wood flooring to have. Sneaky eh!
Because of this construct, with the underneath being made of plywood, it means that this is a great option for a lot more rooms than you would expect, including conservatories and orangeries, where the temperature fluctuates considerably. It can also be used in rooms where you either have underfloor heating or would like to fit underfloor heating.
This also makes it a favourable option for rooms like kitchens and bathrooms where moisture can be a problem for other flooring options. This way you can get the finish you desire, without the hassle of the wood expanding with the humidity.
Getting on to the look. There are lots of options here. I defy you to find a finish that you don’t like. It’s pretty easy to install too. Once you’ve got some wear and tear on it, you can also easily sand it back and refinish it to make it look brand new again. Magic!
I’d definitely consider engineered wood for a couple of rooms in our house – it ticks all our boxes. What about you? Have you considered this as a flooring option? Do you already have engineered wood in your home?
