A strong contender for market share against solid wood, you can see why it is so popular, in both traditional and modern interiors. Not to be confused with laminate flooring, engineered wood flooring is a highly stable and versatile flooring product, which looks just like solid wood. Available in a whole host of sizes, colours and grades, engineered wood flooring can be used pretty much throughout the home and has the added benefit of being suitable for installation over under floor heating.
