kitchen hardwood flooring

What makes engineered flooring a good choice for my kitchen?

Your kitchen gets a lot of use; an engineered hardwood flooring is an awesome material that plays right into that activity level. You prep and cook meals there, wash the dishes there, and it’s where you deliver the groceries after shopping. Your kids might finish their school projects there and if you have pets, it’s likely the room where they have their meals too. This material easily meets all those needs and more and you’re likely to fall in love with the many benefits and the long lifespan it offers as well.

So what makes engineered flooring a good choice for your kitchen? Lots of things! First is its amazing appeal as a hardwood flooring product. While it’s not solid wood through and through, there is a veneer of wood conveniently placed between a great backing layer and a protective top coat. This protective spacing allows you to place it in areas where the solid variety simply is not an option. In kitchens, it just gives you more peace of mind, knowing it won’t react the same way as its solid counterpart.

Engineered hardwood flooring is very durable, especially under the specific conditions that go on in your kitchen. It doesn’t expand or contract with temperature changes, it has a decent level of water resistance, and it handles everyday wear and tear with ease. The protective wear layer helps to resist stains, scratches, and scuffs and even fends off a certain degree of fading.

Of course, all flooring succumbs to wear at some point, and engineered hardwood flooring is no different. The good news is, just like solid wood, these floors can be refinished at least once in their lifespan, depending on the thickness of the wood layer itself.
