Veneer Oak Flooring For Wider Choice Of Tones, Finishes And Sizes

Veneer Oak Flooring


Veneer oak flooring is a wood flooring solution that more and more people are choosing. This type of flooring is often referred to as engineered wood flooring too. You’re sure to have seen it around. In fact, much of the flooring you see in restaurants, shops and hotels, as well as in homes is engineered or veneer wood flooring. It gets the name veneer because of its top layer of solid oak, and shouldn’t be confused with laminate flooring which isn’t wood flooring at all.

So why is veneer oak flooring so popular? Why has it overtaken solid wood flooring in so many different situations? The answer is simple – it’s because it’s so versatile, more stable and it comes in such a huge range of shades, finishes and board sizes.

Veneer oak flooring, unlike solid wood flooring, can be used throughout the whole home. In the likes of bathrooms and kitchens, solid oak flooring wouldn’t normally be recommended, simply because it expands and contracts so much. What this means is that when your bathroom or kitchen gets hot and steamy, your solid oak floor expands, then when it cools down again, it contracts. While a certain amount of expansion and contraction isn’t a major issue, excessive moisture and temperature changes can lead to unsightly gaps in your floor and even to damage caused by the boards squeezing together too much. With veneer oak flooring, you simply don’t have that worry.
