With the appearance of solid wood but easier to install, engineered wood has become a popular choice for many homes. Giving the same irresistible feel and an unmistakable natural look, engineered wood is a great choice throughout most areas of the home.
Engineered flooring is produced from a real wood top layer and a constructed core that make it exceptionally stable. This stability means that engineered wood can be used over underfloor heating and in conservatories. It also means click together joints can be used, making installation a DIY possibility. However, as a natural product acclimatisation is still important.
Just like solid flooring, the look of your engineered wood floor will be affected by three main aspects; the grade of grain, surface texture and size of plank. You can find out more about how these can add to your home in our ‘How to Get the look’ section in the Education Centre.
Engineered wood from UK Flooring direct is available with two types of finish, as well as unfinished. Choosing a lacquer means a more durable floor less susceptible to staining and easier to look after. Oiled finishes give the floor a beautiful natural look and a lived-in feel over time, though do require more intensive maintenance and can be stained by spills.
Most engineered wood flooring can be sanded and refinished up to three times, making it a great long-term option. Engineered wood from UK Flooring Direct will last several decades if cared for properly and some floors are even backed by a lifetime warranty for your peace of mind.
