Engineered wood flooring is made from natural materials. Commonly made up of layers of ply that are bonded together and is always topped off with a layer of solid wood. This is called the top layer and it’s thanks to this solid wood finish that engineered wood looks so convincingly like solid wood.
Engineered wood has the advantage over solid wood that its stable structure means that it is much more resistant to expansion and contraction than solid wood. What this means is that it can safely be fitted in rooms where temperature and moisture fluctuations are significant. Engineered wood flooring can also be installed over under floor heating.
EASY TO MAINTAIN
Engineered wood flooring are easy to clean. It only needs a regular vacuuming and, in this case a light, moist mopping on a regular basis.
The importance of visual impact will depend entirely on the look you’re trying to achieve. At the end of the day, if you want something that looks like real wood, Engineered wood is the way to go.
