Firstly, what is engineered wood flooring? Engineered wood flooring is also known as layered wood flooring which might confuse many to think that engineered wood is ‘NOT’ a real wood, but it is. While solid wood is made of a single piece of wood (as its name suggests), engineered wood is made of solid wood veneer and layered plywood base.

In the process of making engineered wood, layering the plywood in a cross-section manner provides more dimensional stability. As the plywood are laid and glued perpendicularly, movements between the boards are minimised, reducing the risk of over-expansion and contraction. This means engineered wood flooring is less likely to cup or warp when it naturally expands and contracts.

Engineered wood flooring offers numerous advantages and some of these include:

  • Durability
    Engineered wood flooring has high dimensional stability. Its structural strength and stability prevent expansion and contraction due to temperature changes, which is commonly experienced in Singapore. This reduces the possibilities of cupping and warping even when installed in places with high traffics, as a result, it is a good flooring to invest in.
  • Affordable
    With layered wood flooring, you will be able to experience the exquisite texture, feel, and look of real solid wood. Since only the top layer is made of luxury solid wood, this flooring option will not break your bank as much as solid wood flooring.
  • Eco-Friendly
    Floorrich specialises in offering eco-friendly flooring. Since all our flooring is manufactured from ethically sourced materials, you will not only help protect the planet but your family too!
  • Comfortable on the Feet
    This naturally sourced material feels extremely comfortable to walk on. The top layer gives it the natural bounce that one will experience while walking on natural wood flooring, making it an ideal flooring to have installed in places like your bedrooms and living rooms where comfort is of utmost importance.

An engineered wood flooring can be difficult to tell apart from a solid timber flooring once installed. Even though both types of wooden floors have the look of real wood in a home interior, they differ in many ways. Many individuals are unsure whether to choose natural hardwood floors or manufactured wood floors. However, when it comes to low-cost, long-lasting, and low-maintenance hardwood flooring, engineered wood is the ideal option.
