Wood Flooring Basics: Solid Timber, Engineered and Laminate

Solid timber flooring is 100% solid timber, through and through

Engineered timber flooring has a surface layer of solid timber (aka wear layer or lamella), which is joined to a man-made backing designed to increase stability. Backing materials and construction varies between brands.

Laminate flooring is an entirely man-made product with a surface that imitates the look of timber. Sometimes confused for engineered timber flooring but the two are very different!
