floor­ing, which has a pic­ture of wood printed onto the boards, is an in­ex­pen­sive way to get the look, but lam­i­nate isn’t as fash­ion­able as it once was. If you want the real deal, the good news is that other types of wooden floor­ing are now as easy to fit as lam­i­nate. Boards that sim­ply click and fit to­gether, with no nails, screws or glue re­quired, are widely avail­able in both en­gi­neered and solid wood floor­ing. times is a good in­vest­ment be­cause it can take more wear and tear.

En­gi­neered wood is of­ten a more prac­ti­cal choice than solid wood be­cause the lay­ers give it added strength and dura­bil­ity.

Un­like solid wood, it shouldn’t shrink and ex­pand when ex­posed to mois­ture and changes in tem­per­a­ture and hu­mid­ity.
