A LOOK AT WHAT SETS ENGINEERED WOOD FLOORING APART

If you are about to invest in wooden flooring, then one of the first things you will have to decide is whether you want hardwood floors or engineered wood flooring. And if that just sounded like Greek to you, then you most certainly need a crash course of sorts on the subject. If you do not know what you are looking for, it is highly unlikely that you will end up with something you like. Having said that though, we at Nordic Homeworx are always on-hand to help you achieve your dreams, no matter what type of floor you want for your space.

Here, we are going to be tackling the subject of engineered wood flooring for your space, and whether it could be the right option for you. The latter is something you will have to decide on your own based on your requirements, however we will certainly provide you with everything you need to do so. One of the first ways to understand it, is to look at what makes it different from other options like hardwood.

 

IT IS MADE UP OF WOODEN VENEERS

One of the main differences between engineered wood flooring and hardwood floors is that the latter is made of one solid layer of wood from top to bottom. Engineered wood floors are made up of layers of wood, better known as ‘veneers’ in the industry. In a sense, they do work a little similar to dental veneers. Basically, cheaper species of wood are used at the bottom, whilst your preferred wood is used on the topmost layer. Additionally, the thicker the top veneer is, the more expensive it tends to be, so think about how much depth you want for it. Many of our clients are not aware of this as they are not too well-versed with engineered wood flooring dubai; which is exactly what we are here for!

 

COST-EFFECTIVE

We also have plenty of customers who ask us whether we can help them obtain wooden floors for a lesser cost. Since hardwood floors can be typically pricey, we recommend engineered wood floors in such instances. This is because for hardwood floors, there are no layers. It is the complete species of wood throughout. So if you are strapped for cash and have to work on a budget yet would love to have wooden floors on some capacity, then we highly recommend engineered wood floors. In fact, it works quite well, and we have had plenty of satisfied customers.

 

LESSER LIFESPAN

In comparison to hardwood flooring that is. You see, since the wood is in layers, the top layer of wood will eventually wear out, even 30-40 years on. Hardwood floors typically have a much more extended lifetime. Since wooden flooring needs polishing, sandpapering and so on, engineered wood floors cannot really take that sort of treatment repeatedly for too long unlike hardwood. Hence, this is something you should take into consideration. Of course, if the topmost veneer is considerably thick then you can get away with it, but that too only for some time.

If you are unsure of what to decide on, just let us know and we will help you weigh out the pros and cons of each.

WHY WOOD FLOORING IS ALL THE FLOORING YOU NEED

If you have noticed, spaces that boast wooden floors are immediately captivating and have a superior charm to them. Regardless of whether it is a home or office, there is a magnetic pull that immediately transports you back to Victorian times, making you feel like royalty in a way.

Many people either decide to opt for wooden flooring from the start or they decided to switch over later on. Whichever of these you are, it does not matter. Wooden floors are for everyone, and there are two main types to choose from: hardwood and engineered wood flooring. If you are still teetering on the edge of deciding whether wooden floors are for you though, here are a few of our personal insights.

 

HIGHER SALE VALUE

Maybe you are not really thinking of selling your home just yet, but who knows, maybe one day you might want to. When it comes to things like that, you need to be thinking of your future. Did you know that wooden floors add considerable value to your home? Provided that you take care of them that is! Nobody is going to want to invest in a house that has rotting, questionable floors with risk of injury will they? However, our Kährs floors are incredibly sturdy, and the highest quality wooden floors you will find anywhere in the world. With good reason too: they are, the world’s longest wooden floor manufacturers after all. So when it comes to maintenance and longevity, there really is not much to worry about.

 

QUIRKY DESIGNS

Who said wood flooring had to be boring? In fact, we have noticed the rising trend in parquet flooring dubai, which shows us how much creativity is actually out there. If you have no idea what it is, you can look it up or even ask us to show you a few examples. Basically, pieces of wood are arranged into patterns that end up forming a beautiful final layout, making you often forget it is even wood to begin with. If you are stuck for ideas or have never opted for this before, we are more than happy to guide you through it. You can have fun experimenting with different looks for different parts of your house.

 

VARIETY

Just like you have plenty of options when it comes to designs, you also have lots of choice when it comes to variety. There are different types of wood to choose from, depending on your requirements and budget of course. If you let us know how much you can work with financially, we can help set you up with the right type of wood. Kährs offers oak, walnut, jarrah, hard maple and beech to name a few, and they are also some of the best species when it comes to wooden flooring. Some like to mix and match, selecting a different type of wood for a different space, say oak for the living room, walnut in the kitchen and so on.
