Types of wooden floors

There are several types of wooden floors available in the market. Here are the main types.

Solid hardwood flooring

These floors are made from wooden planks that are made from a single piece of wood. Initially these were used for structural purposes especially at wooden support beams. They put perpendicularly to these beams commonly called bearers. The most common wood species are traditional ones that include Oak, Cherry and Maple and exotic trees such as cork and Brazilian Cherry. Each of the species has a distinct grain pattern. Hardwood floors can take quite a lot of abuse without degrading. This is a natural product and is susceptible to dents.

Engineered wood

This is a type of wood that is made of one or two layers in a plank. The top upper layer is called lamella and is the visible wood on installation. However, it is adhered to the other layer called the core. Manufacturers increase stability of each layer by running each layer at ninety degrees angle to the layer above. This is later put on any subfloor with less difficulty. Engineered wood is the most popular type of wood that is used globally.

Categories of engineered wood


Veneer wood is made of a thin piece of wood placed on a core that is composite wood product.

There is acrylic impregnated wood is wood that has been impregnated by acrylic material through some process.

Laminate and vinyl floors are not wood but aesthetically manufactured materials. Laminate floors use wood images on their surfaces while vinyl is a plastic material that is formed to look like wood.

Before purchasing any type of wood, it is good for one to view the different types available. This is because it is hard to differentiate each in terms of quality and looks without comparing it to others. Installation should be made by professional flooring experts in order to glue the pieces correctly and leave no spaces in between the pieces. Wood floor flooring would turn Singapore condominiums into lush apartments.
