To the eye, engineered wood flooring has all the natural beauty of solid wood. Intriguing textures, rich and subtle colours, and gorgeous finishes are all present and correct.

However, the boards are constructed in a way that makes them more versatile, and more practical in today’s home.

It is composed of multiple layers of timber stuck together, and then finished with a layer of hardwood lamella. Engineered wood flooring is seen as an appealing alternative to solid wood flooring as it looks similar and is able to withstand high levels of moisture and fluctuations in temperature, making it an ideal flooring solution for underfloor heating. Top brands include Woodpecker and Furlong!
