Engineered Wood Flooring Guide

We think engineered floors are the best thing to happen to flooring since sliced wood. Why? Well,engineered floors look and feel just like solid wood, but you can lay them in areas where solid wood can't go - like kitchens, basements and conservatories. The clever people behind these floors have done this by making engineered flooring out of multiple layers.

The top layer is the fancy looking bit: a beautiful veneer of solid wood. It's the bit you can feel and touch and it's the most important choice to make when choosing your engineered floor.

The second layer is the clever bit: a strong, supportive layer that can be made of plywood, HDF or a soft wood. All three materials work the same, so all you need to know is that they prevent the top layer from warping.

This is then all finished off with a stabilising back layer. The result? A floor which looks amazing but doesn't buckle in areas of changing moisture.
