Light engineered wood for any room
The durability, style and quality of engineered wood flooring means it works well in most rooms, even kitchens which are subject to some spillages of water. The beauty of installing light coloured engineered wood flooring into any room in your home is that it opens the space and makes it feel much brighter. This is particularly useful in rooms which are small or rooms that are larger but don’t get much light like dining rooms or bedrooms.
While you may be worried about choosing light-coloured flooring if you have children or pets, engineered wood is easy to clean and can also be repaired if it does become scratched or dented. Because it’s made with layers of real wood, the surface can be sanded and refinished. To clean light engineered wood planks, brush with a soft-bristled brush regularly and wipe with a damp (not wet) mop occasionally to get rid of dirt or scuff marks.
Styles of engineered wood light flooring
As well as different shades and colours light engineered flooring comes in different finishes and styles. They can also be laid in different ways such as in a herringbone pattern or in the traditional way of adjacent planks.
Engineered light oak wood flooring is a stunning addition to any room. With its wood grain finish, this floor has just the right amount of traditionality while the light colour brings a contemporary element to the style. Choose a light wood shade for modern country homes to bring warmth yet brightness into your room. For something a little more current, a white stained oak engineered wood will look beautiful in a bedroom and will last for years to come.
If you’re looking for a light floor colour that’s somewhat in between, go for a ‘nude’ oak. This has the appearance and feel of traditional oak but with a lighter colour to give it an authentic feel. It has visible knots and mineral streaks, which is why it is described as a nude floor which looks like bare, untreated wood.
Benefits of light engineered wood floor
When choosing your new flooring, the appearance plays just as big a part as the type. Light floors are great for bouncing light around the room. Not only can they make your room feel brighter, they can also add the illusion of more space, making the room appear bigger.
In other flooring styles, you may be worried about choosing a light colour for fear of it becoming stained, marked or dented. With engineered wood, you can rest assured that the floor can be easily cleaned and can likely be repaired should anything happen to it. Engineered wood is also much more durable than real wood flooring but has the appearance of solid wood. This gives you the best of both worlds.
