  • What is the difference between engineered wooden floor and laminate floor?

    Engineered wooden floor is totally different to laminate floor.

    Engineered flooring contains a slice of natural wood on top (around 3-6mm). Its quality construction makes it durable and gives it high-performance qualities. It is made with multiple layers of wood, such as spruce, plywood or solid wood, and each layer is positioned in a different direction to increase its strength. Its stable structure means that it is much more resistant to expansion and contraction in comparison to solid wood when put under temperature and moisture fluctuations. The top layer is coated with lacquer or natural oil.
    Wooden floors fill us with a warm and comfortable feeling when we walk on it. You get a floor that is vibrant, natural and unique because no two parquet floors are alike.

    Laminate flooring is a synthetic floor made with a photographic plastic film and melamine film pressed on top of high-density fiberboard. The photographic film gives the impression of a wooden floor, but since it’s not a natural material, the wood pattern will repeat itself. Laminate flooring is also called a “floating floor” because it isn’t fastened directly to a subfloor. Instead, individual planks snap together to create tight seams and are then put down over a thin underlayment pad. Laminate flooring is moderately moisture-resistant, extremely durable and resistant to scratches and dents but may chip.

  • Will engineered flooring show color variation?

    Yes, with a real hardwood timber surface, each high-quality engineered timber floorboard features knots and color variation that provide authentic visual appeal. Wood is a product of nature. Each tree has its own structure and individual color combination. Small sample of wood is therefore not representative alone to give a complete picture of the finish floor.

  • Will the timber floor change color when exposed to sunlight?

    Incoming sun, particularly UV rays, lead to a natural change in the tone of the wood color over time. Depending on the type of wood and treatment of this wood your parquet flooring may become darker or lighter. In strong light, for example through floor-to-ceiling windows, the effect may also be partial. Remember that if you remove your carpets or furniture after some time it is possible that your parquet flooring will have changed color in the areas that were not covered.
