Uses for Engineered Hardwood Flooring

Engineered hardwood flooring is usually quite durable, meaning that it is suitable for use in many different parts of a home. Popular areas where this flooring can be used include hallways, bedrooms, guest rooms, and home office spaces. Most engineered hardwood flooring styles may not be suitable for areas that experience excessive levels of dampness though – such as bathrooms and kitchens.

Unlike solid hardwood flooring that only consists of a layer of wood and the varnish on top, engineered hardwood consists of up to seven layers of material that have been compressed together – with a thin layer of solid wood on the top. This enables it to be sold at prices that are far more affordable than those of solid hardwood floor treatments. There are also several different color options available, meaning that most homeowners will find something they like with ease. 

Caring for Engineered Hardwood Floors

In most cases, engineered hardwood flooring can be cared for and maintained in much the same way as the laminate flooring. The main thing to keep in mind is that spills should always be mopped up as soon as they happen, and this flooring should also never be soaked when it’s being cleaned. Damp mopping is normally all that’s needed to keep this flooring clean.

When choosing between the different engineered hardwood flooring styles, it’s a good idea to set aside a realistic budget. This will ensure that you’re able to get a good quality product at the best possible price.
