Individuals may consider installing engineered flooring if they are looking to spruce up a house they have up for sale.
Caroline McGhie, writing for the Telegraph, observed people want to create a good first impression if they are looking to complete a deal for their home.
"In today's unforgiving market, care and presentation are crucial. Buyers have taken to doing 'drive-by viewings', so the exterior needs to seduce like never before," she added.
A wooden floor may add value to the property as it could give the room it is laid in a good finish.
As well as putting down solid wood flooring, another consideration for individuals should be doing any outstanding repair work in the dwelling.
This includes painting tired rooms, getting new rugs in and decluttering spaces so they no longer have a personal touch about them.
