Engineered Wood Flooring Guide

Engineered wood flooring is a great alternative to traditional solid wood in that they are often suitable for areas where solid wood flooring isn’t. Think kitchens and conservatories, so you can get the look you want without having to compromise. The design behind the engineered floors is built around a layered system giving the aesthetic of solid wood while offering the support structure to work in different rooms. The top layer reflects the aesthetic of solid wood and is the most important section when it comes to choosing your floor. The second layer is where the magic happens. It is a strong, supportive material usually made from soft wood, HDF or plywood. All three of the materials will serve the same function which is to stop the top layer from warping. The layers are all tied together with a third layer which is designed to stabilise the structure of the flooring. The result is a three layered board that can withstand day to day use and changing moisture levels.
