Engineered and Solid Hardwood Explained

When it comes to choosing a type of hardwood flooring, it can be confusing when deciding between the two major types: engineered and solid hardwood.

Solid hardwood flooring is made from one piece of 100% solid wood, typically harvested from forests around the world. It is then cut into planks that are installed using nails or staples over an existing subfloor.

Engineered hardwood flooring on the other hand is composed of several layers pressed together with the top layer being solid wood veneer making it more resistant to changes in temperature and humidity than solid hardwood floors. As a result, engineered hardwood is recommended for rooms with high humidity levels such as bathrooms and basements, as well as for uneven surfaces where a nail-down installation would be difficult. Engineered floors also tend to be easier to install as they can be floated over just about any substrate with standard adhesives.

Both engineered and solid hardwood floors come in a variety of species, colors, and styles so you can choose something that reflects your unique design aesthetic while still getting the look of real wood throughout your home.

When selecting which type of flooring is best for you, consider which room you’re installing in – engineered might work better in certain environments – how much foot traffic there will be along with your budget limitations before making a decision.
