AD| Is Engineered Hardwood Flooring For You?

When we first moved into our current home just over two years ago, the first thing we wanted to do was to change the flooring. However, realistically we knew that due to costs, this would have to wait a couple of years.

We are now in the position to finally make some choices regarding flooring throughout our home and I have shocked myself. I always thought I was a carpet person and never wanted anything else for the majority of our home, including our living room. However, with two young children, one of whom will be potty training soon, I now couldn't think of anything worse than having carpet in our main living area.
Now, I may be naive, but I never knew that there were so many flooring options aside from carpet; laminate, vinyl, wood, and so on. All had their pros and cons which left me unable to make a decision. I then came across Engineered Wood Flooring on which is something I hadn't heard of before. If you love the effect that solid wood flooring gives but can't quite afford the price tag, then definitely take a look into Engineered Wood Flooring; it is an amazing alternative and is almost identical to solid wood flooring. 
Engineered Wood Flooring provides better stability and resistance to changes in moisture and temperature - it won't expand and contract to the same extent as solid wood, which is always a plus. As the top layer is real wood, it is available in many different colours and finishes; it can also be installed in numerous ways including nailed down and glued with flooring adhesive. Most will often have a click fitting system which makes it quick and easy to install into your home. 
Another perk is that the top layer can also be sanded and re-finished if needed, a perk of which is one of my favourites! 
We had decided on solid wood flooring but decided that, due to me being out of work for the next three years, we would wait until next year when we would be in a better financial position. However, after finding out about Engineered Wood Flooring and looking at the costs involved, we are able to go ahead and have our flooring done a lot sooner than we expected. The only thing that is going to take up more time now is choosing between all of the finishes that Flooring365 have available!
