Engineered Wood Flooring Options

When you think of doing up the floors of your home, what options do you consider? If you have been there and done that, you will know that the best options available to you are solid floors and engineered floors. When you visit some body’s house, by merely looking at the floors, you would not be able to differentiate between a solid wood floor and an engineered wood floor, but structurally they are very different. Aesthetically both may appeal to home owners or office owners who are looking to revamp their quarters, yet their composition is what makes them so unique.

Like you know, and can understand from the term ‘solid wood floors’, they are made from one whole solid piece of wood, on the contrary, an engineered wooden floor is made of multiple layers of wood which have been either machine pressed or cross layered and bonded with adhesives. Both the wood types come with their own set or pros and cons. Solid wood flooring has been the first choice with many because of the warmth and affluence they exude. When you walk into a room with solid wooden floors, you are enamoured by the design, the shade and the finish of the floors.

Engineered wood, on the other hand, has the pro of being laid in any manner you like and often gives each room a different look and feel. Engineered wood floors are fast taking up the place which was earlier occupied by solid wooden floors because of the easy installation process. In engineered wooden floors, all you need is a strong underlay, which can handle the engineered wooden floors. The engineered wood floors are, so to say, floated on the underlay. This is better, easier and less messy than installing a solid wooden floor. It is cheaper than installing the solid wooden floors too.

With engineered wooden floors, the variety you get is unbelievable. The styles and designs you get are unparalleled and they also come in prefinished forms, because of which you can get them installed in your home directly after buying. Some people might argue that these engineered wooden floors cannot match the look and feel of carpets, well for them, you just have to try one to be convinced and moreover, compared to carpets engineered wooden floors provide a more hygienic option. For that home decor that leaves people gaping, opting for a floor makeover using engineered wooden floors is a safe bet for you to try.
