Back in the ‘90s, laminate was the flooring equivalent of The New Black. Laminate was everywhere – bathrooms, bedrooms, kitchens. We’d have laminated our car interiors if it had been just a little less fiddly round the handbrake and gearstick. Carpet became a dirty word in interior circles.Or, if we shunned the laminate solution in favour of something more “authentic”, we decided to go “original”. We eagerly stripped back our ill-fitting hundred year-old floorboards and then wondered why every footstep could be heard next door, the internal doors no longer fitted properly, dust collected in every crevice, and draughts whistled from room to room.

However, for a more timeless solution which will last and last, and still look great, and be easy to clean, many householders are now opting for engineered oak flooring. Flooring for the 21stCentury, it consists of a top layer of real wood, bonded to boards beneath.

Manufacturers of hardwood Flooringanddoors are able to use engineering techniques to create a product which gives the best of both worlds. In today’s centrally-heated homes, wooden flooring is likely to shrink or expand due to the changes in room humidity, resulting in creaking floorboards, draughts due to gaps between boards, and uneven surfaces. However, engineered hardwood flooring is much more stable, avoiding all these problems and it is also more straightforward to lay than a solid wood floor.

Instead of the uniform nature of laminate, we get all the character of real wood: the quiet warmth of oak, the dark beauty of walnut or the clean simplicity of maple. Not only that, but the engineering process uses far less actual wood, thus reducing the pressure on forests worldwide; this flooring is more sustainable. And there’s nothing like the feeling of real wood beneath your feet. Engineered wood flooring: a unique and beautiful solution which naturally makes sense.
