Wooden flooring, even today, remains a highly preferred choice for many Melbourne homeowners. They have an earthy quality, warmth beneath the feet and adds a touch of elegance and sophistication to any living space. Although hardwood flooring is an expensive option, there is an alternative for those who wish to have beautifully grained timber floors for their Melbourne homes – Engineered timber floors. It is budget-friendly, aesthetically and functional like hardwood flooring, but it is easier to maintain and sustainable.
What is Engineered Timber Floors in Melbourne?
Unlike solid hardwood timber flooring in Melbourne, a single solid untreated plank of wood engineered timber floors is a composite creation. Engineered timber floors available in Melbourne are made of multiple layers of wood in a criss-cross fashion, making a solid base for flooring. The final top layer, called the veneer, is a layer of hardwood. The layer structure in a contrasting direction ensures better stability, durability and making it last longer. They are able to resist warping due to moisture absorption.
The benefits of engineering timber floors are low maintenance compared to solid hardwood timber flooring for Melbourne homeowners. It is easier to install and can even be installed below ground level. They are cost-effective and quick to install; that doesn’t mean that you’ll have to compromise on their look. Remember, the top veneer is still hardwood, which will make it have the same luxurious feel as a solid hardwood timber flooring for any Melbourne home.
