What is engineered wood flooring?
Engineered wood flooring has revolutionised the world of wooden flooring. Invented in the 1960s as an alternative to solid wood flooring, it brings all the strength, durability and beauty of a traditional solid wood floor, but it’s a more modern and sustainable alternative.
It’s classy, it’s hard-wearing and it’s easy to install – and it’s impossible to tell the difference between engineered wood flooring and solid wood floors these days, too. So it’s no wonder it’s one of the most sought-after choices for celebrities, influencers, interior designers and homeowners alike.
Made up of multiple layers, engineered wood flooring features a 2-6mm top layer (also called the ‘wear layer’ or the ‘lamella’) which is precision-milled from quality hardwood oak or walnut for maximum durability and style. It’s then backed onto engineered bases made from fast-growing spruce, popular and birch timbers, making it the planet-friendly choice.
Just like solid wood flooring, engineered wood flooring is available in plank or parquet design, always featuring a layer of prime hardwood on top in a choice of finishes and colours.
Advantages of engineered wood flooring:
Engineered wood flooring is the natural choice for customers looking to enhance their interior spaces with a hardwood flooring solution that’s as practical as it is beautiful.
Elegant – an engineered hardwood floor looks and feels as beautiful as a solid wood floor, with none of the limitations.
Strong – practical and hard-wearing, engineered wood floors have a real layer of top quality solid wood on top that will stand up to the impacts of a busy household or communal area with continuous footfall.
Sustainable – crafted from sustainably-sourced timber from well-managed forests. Because it’s made of multiple layers, fewer slower-growing hardwood trees are used in the process. Read more on our sustainability commitment here.
Versatile – the perfect choice for every interior, whether contemporary or traditional, engineered wood flooring enhances any space it’s installed in. And because it stands up to temperature and moisture changes, it’s perfect for areas such as basements which are prone to cold and damp conditions.
Choice – available in parquet (herringbone, chevron or design panels), or plank, with a range of woods, colours, sizes and finishes available to suit your style, so you’ll find the perfect match for your space, to blend in with any existing interior design features.
Modern – works well with underfloor heating systems, expanding and contracting to cope with constant changes in temperature. Heat transfers to the floor surface safely, without damage to the floor.
Easy – engineered wooden flooring is easy to clean and care for, with minimum fuss.
Affordable – a more cost-effective solution than solid hardwood flooring, and it’ll boost the value of your home, too.
Long-lasting – guaranteed in your home for 35 years, and made to last a lifetime.
