Engineered wood flooring is a popular alternative to solid wood flooring as it similar in appearance but provides increased stability, allowing it to cope with high levels of moisture and changes in temperature. This makes it a perfect solution for underfloor heating.
It looks and feels just like a solid wood floor because the top layer is solid wood, usually a hardwood. A good quality engineered floor will also last as long and perform as well as a solid wood floor.
The pattern of your flooring should be an extremely important thought process, as it will capture the overall design of your room and influence the placement of your furniture. It can be designed in many ways including Straight Plank, Parquet and Chevron. All having their own unique style.
