The Many Faces of Engineered Wood Flooring
The Choice Is Yours
Handscraped finishes join the rustic, old-world feel of antique flooring with the durability and simplified installation boasted by engineered products. The textured surface tolerates bumps and bruises quite well, making handscraped not only a great-looking choice, but also a practical ones for high-traffic areas or homes with pets and kids.
Tobacco Road Acacia
Oak, pine, maple and other traditional woods are readily found in engineered flooring. Equally easy to source are exotic species, such as koa, teak, or this Tobacco Road Acacia, popular for its remarkable variation in color and grain.
If you want the warmth of traditional hardwood flooring, look no further than white or red oak. Think you can't afford it? Think again! Oak engineered flooring costs but a fraction of the real thing, and with your choice of stains or finishes, you can create or re-create any look that you love.
Light-color floors are a superb option for dining rooms, children's nurseries, or indeed any space you wish to feel bright and airy. In this natural maple engineered floor, each piece shows variations in color and shade, so once the boards come together in the completed installation, the floor becomes a fresh, mood-lifting foundation for decor.
Plank floors, whose boards are wider than the traditional three inches, tend to have a luxurious, custom look reminiscent of historic homes and country settings. Australian Cypress (pictured here) catches the eye with dark knots and intricate grain patterns, allowing homeowners to achieve a century-old look with a minimum of hassle.
Click-together flooring goes right on top of the subfloor, requiring no nails, staples, or glue to secure it in place. How's that for easy installation? Better yet, when you shop at Lumber Liquidators, any stain available for solid hardwood can also be had for a floating floor. So even if the pewter gray shown here isn't your style, you're sure to find the right fit among the store's wide and varied range of offerings.
