Six advantages of engineered wood flooring

Wooden floors have long been a must-have in our homes, and there are lots of good reasons why it never goes out of fashion. Of course, it’s very beautiful, but that’s not the only reason to choose engineered wood flooring.

Like real hardwood, engineered flooring is very durable, and because of its layered construction it can be a good option in rooms, such as the kitchen, that have a higher risk of damage.

Low maintenance

Engineered wood flooring is easy to clean, and stands up to moisture better than solid hardwood. A soft brush or a vacuum cleaner will clean up dust very easily.

Easy to install

The tongue and groove system means that engineered wooden flooring is very easy to fit, even for DIYers.

Long life

Scuff marks can easily be sanded down. And, if you fancy a change, give the floor a new finish and it will look completely different for only a small investment.

Value for money

This sort of flooring is cost-effective, especially when compared with hardwood options, such as maple, and the lower installation costs save money too.

Plenty of choice

There are so many styles and colours to choose from in engineered flooring that you’re bound to find something to suit. See the Which? guide on how to choose the right floor for you, or talk to a specialist retailer such as Wood Floor Warehouse

Whether you are looking for your home or workplace, engineered wood flooring is worth considering.
