What is Engineered Wood Flooring?
Our entire range of light wood flooring is made from engineered wood, which achieves the same look as hardwood floors, but with heightened durability and tensile strength.
We engineer our light wood flooring by backing our oak and walnut timber over layers of precision-cut plywood. We opt for birch, spruce, pine, and poplar plywood as they are among the strongest and most renewable available.
Thanks to our engineered base, our light wood floors will lay evenly on almost any subfloor. And with four-sided micro-bevelling, the grooves and joins are smooth underfoot and easier than ever to keep clean.

3 Advantages of Light Engineered Wood Flooring
We source our oak and walnut timber from managed woodlands in Europe and America. These forested areas are carefully looked after for signs of disease and stunted growth, ensuring the highest quality timber on the market. But most importantly, these managed woodlands are a brilliant sustainable manufacturing solution.
This careful cultivation reduces waste for manufacturers, and the biodiversity of the woodland itself is prioritised, meaning these forested areas are not harmful to the surrounding environment.
The best thing about engineered wood flooring is how little wood it wastes. Traditional hardwood floors require large cuts of timber, up to 22 mm a piece, whereas engineered wood floors only need cuts between 2 and 6 mm thick. The rest of its heft comes from the multi-ply base. This makes engineered wood the most sustainable real wood flooring solution available.
MORE ABOUT OUR ECO PROMISE
Our light wood floors are unobtrusive visually, blending seamlessly with existing decor without taking over the space. From lichen white to jetsam oak, we offer a spectrum of beautifully gentle tones.
With their highly flexible plywood base and secure locking systems and tongue & groove fittings, our light wood floors can be installed in just about any room, and over most modern underfloor heating systems, both hydronic and electric, with no risk of swelling or cracking.
All of our light wood floors are finished with low-VOC lacquers and oils which are left to cure, sinking deep into the timber grain to help it resist moisture and wood rot, and to reduce the appearance of wear and tear over long periods of time and in high traffic areas.
Our quality oils and lacquer finishes also limit natural discolouration and keep your floors looking brand new for longer.
