What are the advantages of engineered wood flooring?

Engineered wood flooring is great in so many ways. Not only is it strong and sustainable, but it imitates the beauty of real wood. The only difference is how it’s built.

Engineered wood is constructed of recycled wood and topped with a layer of solid. People often mistake engineered for solid wood, but we’re not surprised.

So, if you’re thinking about choosing engineered wood rather than solid, let us persuade you. Let’s take a look at the advantages of engineered wood flooring.

Suitable for underfloor heating 

The great thing about engineered wood flooring is that it can be installed over underfloor heating. This makes it the number one choice for those who want the look of real wood and added warmth.

Easy to install 

Engineered wood flooring comes in different joining methods, for example, click fit and tongue & groove. If you want to save time and money when laying your floor, choose engineered wood flooring for an easy fitting process. Or if you prefer, hire a professional to do the job for you.

Looks like real wood 

One of the best things about engineered wood flooring is that it just looks like real wood. Your guests will be fooled once they see it! You can choose from any stain and colour you desire.


Engineered wood flooring is constructed with recycled MDF that’s bonded together and finished with a thin layer of solid wood. It’s one of the top flooring choices to withstand heavy foot traffic, perfect for busy households.


There is a wide selection of engineered wood flooring on the market with styles ranging from chevron to herringbone. Whether you love dark and traditional or light and modern, there is something for everyone.

Easy to maintain 

Maintaining your engineered wood floor is so easy you can do it with your eyes closed (not literally). Wood doesn’t like water so, it’s important to clean any spillages up right away. Use a vacuum cleaner and sweeping brush daily to clean up any dirt or dust.

Long lifespan

If you want a forever floor, choose engineered wood. You can also sand engineered wood down if you’re not keen on the ‘worn’ look, but it definitely adds character to your home.
