Kitchen Remodel Ideas – San Jose – Flooring – Engineered Wood
The most important things to know about engineered wood flooring is:
- It is NOT laminate. Laminate is melamine treated paper on top of particle board, which is the absolutely worst choice for kitchens (in my humble opinion).
- It lacks the biggest disadvantage which natural wood flooring for kitchens do have.
Engineered wood is real wood pressed very tightly onto a plywood substrate.
It comes in many different types of wood, and is pre-finished at the factory.
The advantages of being pre-finished are:
- As soon as you finish installing it, you can walk on it.
- The finishes tend to be of very high quality and tend to be much better than most finishes of most natural wood floors.
If you want wood flooring in your kitchen, we try to steer you to engineered wood.
If it scratches lightly, it can be lightly sanded.
If one or two pieces become badly scratched, it is possible (but not easy) to replace them.
For what it’s worth, all bamboo flooring is engineered wood, and bamboo is probably the single best choice for wood floors for kitchens for a variety of reasons (which will be expanded upon in a future article).
If wood flooring for your kitchen remodel is your desire, engineered wood is the way to go.
