  • Engineered Wood Flooring

    Not to be mistaken with solid wood flooring, engineered flooring is constructed using a layer of plywood with a hardwood surface. We know that some people shy away from solid wood floors because of price and high maintenance, however, engineered wood flooring is different and depending on the construction, thickness, and quality it can last many years, whilst providing the look and feel of solid wood flooring. Here at UK Sleepers, we offer multiple options and finishes to match your specific tastes so it doesn’t matter whether your style is classic or contemporary; we will find something that works.


    What are the benefits of using engineered wood?

    1.         The most exciting thing about engineered wood flooring is that it’s more affordable than solid hardwood, which makes it more suitable to those on a budget.

    2.         It’s difficult to distinguish from solid wood because the upper layer usually comprises of the real thing and thanks to this, it’s possible to find engineered wood floors in a range of finishes including oak.

    3.         It tends to be much more durable too and as a result, it’s possible to install it in many different ways. You can use professionals or you can even take the DIY route.

    4.         The flexibility that engineered wood offers makes it more resistant to temperature changes, which can make it a great choice for utility rooms and cellars. These rooms can often be a nuisance because of moisture, which can cause other types of flooring to bubble and warp.

    5.         Most floors using engineered wood have a life span of more than four decades, which means many people are out of a home way before they need to think about replacing it.
