This type of flooring is perfect when you want the rustic warmth of authentic wood floors without the hassles.

Engineered wood floors also come in a variety of different finishes such as an oiled finish or lacquer which gives the floor a glossy, smooth appearance.

The rest of the layers are constructed with plywood, softwood or HDF.
