People who buy engineered flooring may find it is easier to install than other options.
This is because Sarah Jackson, writing for the Herald, noted it can be put on top of other surfaces, such as concrete slabs and existing floors.
As well as this, it is cheaper than some other forms of the product, due to the fact it is merely finished with a thick veneer.
"Unlike most hardwood, engineered wood floors almost always come prefinished, so after they're installed, they're ready to use," Ms Jackson observed.
This type of wooden floor is also "less susceptible" to changes in temperature and so problems associated with boards moving is not as big an issue, she added.
However, Ms Jackson remarked thatwill still always give a more unique look.
Yvonne Beeksma, manager of Delta Carpets, told the Delta Optimist that lifestyle decisions are important when considering what wooden floor to choose.
