What are the benefits of engineered flooring?

Installing engineered timber flooring is an excellent investment for your residential or commercial property. It exudes a comforting balance of warmth and elegance, adding a timeless appeal to your property. There’s also the fact that it has greater dimensional strength than solid hardwood.

Here are the top reasons to install engineered timber flooring in your property:

  • Engineered timber flooring won’t cost you as much as solid hardwood flooring
  • Engineered hardwood is more resistant to humidity and fluctuating temperature
  • Easy installation means cutting down on time and resources spent on transforming a room
  • Choose from a variety of wood species, colours, finishes, and plank widths for your project

How do you choose the right engineered floors?

When you shop with Tile Importer, you have a wide selection of engineered hardwood flooring to choose from. With so many choices available, you might need help selecting the right one for your property. But remember that the most important factors are the product’s durability and how the product complements your interior design.

Here are some other factors to consider when choosing the right type of engineered flooring:

  • Wood species: Oak is a popular species because of its durability and timeless tone
  • Wood stain: Engineered flooring is often pre-stained, but you can re-stain it to match your room
  • Finishing: Choose from high-gloss, semi-gloss and matte floorings depending on room décor
  • Surface effects: Smooth surface design is more formal. Add texture for a more rustic look
  • Core layer: Plywood is a common core layer that offers lasting support and durability
