One of the most impressive ways to improve your living space is by installing new floors. There’s nothing else that stands out as clearly as stunning new flooring, and there are some truly impressive materials being used these days. When it comes to upgrading the flooring in your home, you’ll be faced with countless options. A choice that has been growing in popularity in recent years is engineered hardwood flooring. What is engineered hardwood flooring, and what makes it an ideal choice for so many homeowners? Learning a little about this versatile and beautiful flooring option can help make your next renovation look its very best.
Engineered hardwood is the way to go for rooms with slightly higher humidity and if larger widths are desired. These floors are genuine hardwood floors made from wood veneers. The veneers can be the same or different species. The grain of each veneer runs in different directions, which increases its stability. This means the wood will take longer to expand and contract during fluctuations in humidity and temperature. This type of flooring sometimes can be sanded and refinished, depending on the thickness of its top layer. Engineered wood flooring can be installed above, on or below grade. A versatile alternative to solid hardwood with the same look and feel, engineered hardwood can be installed practically anywhere.
Wood has been a go to flooring material for centuries, and for good reason. It’s lovely, durable, and adds a sense of charm and sophistication to any space. Engineered hardwood flooring isn’t like laminate flooring or regular hardwood, but can be considered a mix of the two. Like hardwood, it has a solid or layered core. Engineered hardwood can be a more cost effective option than traditional hardwood. It truly is an excellent option that can be used to beautify just about any space in the home.
