Engineered wood is the perfect flooring solution for every home. It's cheaper and more hard-wearing than real wood floors. Engineered wood flooring also retains the real look and texture of authentic wood, without the expensive price tag. Just as real wood floors come in a wide variety of types of wood, with various patterns, stains and finishes, so too does engineered wood.

This flooring features a bolstered base which provides strength and longevity, along with a veneer of real wood to provide a striking statement in any room in your home. Our engineered wood flooring is incredibly easy to install, coming in tongue and groove or click systems. Both of these types of installation are simple and quick to fit in your home.

Engineered wood is easy to clean, needing only regular removal of dust to stop small surface scratches and a regular wipe with a damp mop. Engineered wood is best suited to rooms whose atmosphere stays constant, rather than particularly moist areas. Perfect for hallways, bedrooms, dining and living rooms, engineered wood adds an instant amount of sophistication to your home which requires very little maintenance.

In this section you can find a variety of articles featuring engineered wood flooring tips to help you get the most out of your flooring. Our detailed engineered wood advice covers everything from installation to cost and care. Browse the below guides to learn more about engineered wood or have your questions answered. Alternatively, don't hesitate to contact us if you have a specific query.
