A Focus on Engineered Oak Flooring

If you didn’t know already, at White Hall Flagstones we offer engineered oak flooring as well as our natural stone flooring options. If you are thinking about new flooring and like the look of oak, engineered oak may be a great option for you! Engineered oak is a really popular type of wood flooring and can be a great option for both contemporary or traditional homes, suiting a whole range of interiors.

What is engineered oak?

Engineered oak is a type of wood flooring that is made with oak as its primary material, but engineered to withstand the effects of temperature and moisture changes, unlike solid oak. It’s a great choice for anyone who likes the look of oak, but doesnt want the complications that come with solid oak flooring. 

Pros of engineered oak

  • Looks just like solid oak

The great thing about engineered oak, is that it looks exactly like solid oak but doesn’t carry the issues that solid oak may have, meaning you can install it in any room you like. Engineered oak has a timeless look, making it a great choice for the long term as it will never go out of style or fashion. 

  • Easy to maintain 

Engineered oak is really easy to maintain and is often a popular choice for busy, active homes with children and pets. It can be cleaned easily with a quick hoover or mop but we do always recommend that you check the labels of any floor cleaning products you buy to ensure that it is suitable for engineered oak flooring. 

  • Lots of choice

At White Hall, we offer engineered oak flooring in both single width or multiple widths, giving you the option to create a different look depending on your style preferences. Our single width engineered is character grade, meaning that you will have some variation in the colour of the oak, which we think best represents that character you would expect to find in an oak floor. Our multi width engineered oak creates a look similar to what would have been laid 2-500 years ago. Take a look here for width options and to find out more about the characteristics that each style holds. 

  • Easy to install 

Generally, engineered oak flooring is really easy to install, making it a great choice for anyone undergoing home renovations and doing most of the work themselves, although we would always recommend seeking professional advice first if you plan to install it yourself.
