Choosing the right hardwood flooring for your home
At Equal, we know that custom-made timber flooring is one of the biggest changes you can make to your house. Cosy, durable, and warm to walk on, they can elevate your home to a new level of sophistication. When choosing new hardwood flooring, it is important to know the different options available on the market, be it solid wood, or engineered hardwood flooring.
Our solid wood flooring is available in a wide range of premium hardwoods including oak, walnut, ash, beech, and maple, and are sourced from leading European brands such as Bauwork and BOEN. Our engineered flooring is made with up to 9 layers of plywood backing, glued cross-directionally for an efficient use of the precious hardwoods.
Why our hardwood flooring is ideal for Hong Kong
Solid wood flooring
Equal stocks a wide range of hardwood flooring options for you to add to your Hong Kong home. Solid wood flooring is composed of long wood planks that are dried and processed from solid hardwood materials such as oak, cherry and walnut. As the name suggests, the planks are made of solid wood throughout. Common types of solid wood flooring include oak, walnut and ash.
Engineered hardwood flooring
From its appearance, engineered hardwood flooring looks no different than its solid counterpart. However, unlike solid wood floors, only the top and outermost layer of engineered flooring uses premium hardwood. This is the only layer you will see and walk on. Contrastingly, the lower layers use a combination of spruce strips and spruce veneer. This flooring allows not only a more environmentally conscious use of hard woods, but a more durable, flexible, and resistant floor choice.
Places with underfloor heating or hot and humid climates like Hong Kong often leave the floor susceptible to expanding and contracting along with changes in moisture and temperature. This leads to longevity issues of the flooring and can be expensive to maintain. The perpendicular layers in engineered hardwood flooring renders it far more resistant to these environmental changes, making it the perfect addition to your home in Hong Kong.
