Overview

Walnut flooring has a unique style which combines opulence and durability. Depending on the type of finish, the timber can vary in grain and colour which makes it a great choice if you are aiming to add a sense of warmth to your room.

Engineered walnut flooring is extremely easy to install as its tongue and groove system means that attaching the planks is fool-proof. You can use glue or nails to attach the timber to your subfloor, or you can use the “floating” method, in which you simply attach the planks like a jigsaw without permanently attaching them to the subfloor. 

What is engineered walnut flooring?

Engineered wood consists of multiple layers of timber, which makes it significantly thicker than solid wood. The base of the material is made up of several core boards that are layered on top of each other and fused under intense heat. The top layer of hardwood, known as a lamella, is the surface which is visible to the eye. This can be made up of a wide range of species – including oak, walnut or acacia – depending on the style of flooring that would suit your room.

What are the advantages of engineered walnut flooring?

One of the main benefits of engineered walnut flooring is that its strength and durability are perfect for any room or property which is prone to significant seasonal temperatures changes.  

Engineered flooring also allows for movement in rooms that may contain underfloor heating systems, such as kitchens or bathrooms. Its dark colour also means that it can easily hide any obvious dirt or dust – and it's very easy to clean with nothing more than a damp mop and a bit of elbow grease.

Engineered walnut flooring vs. solid walnut flooring

Both engineered and solid wood flooring have arguments in their favour. If you're looking to install a floor in a kitchen or bathroom, engineered wood is the clear winner – it's water-resistant and doesn't have the moisture problems associated with solid wood. Otherwise, it comes down more to personal preference.

Engineered wood flooring offers simpler installation, and it's easier to maintain. It's very durable, though in high-traffic areas solid wood will normally last longer. Due to the way engineered boards are constructed, they're generally more stable and consistent, while appearing almost identical to natural wood.

Solid wood flooring is often preferred in high foot-traffic areas, as it's incredibly long-lasting – and can be repeatedly sanded down and refinished if it gets any scratches. And of course, some people just prefer to have the real thing!

Alternatives to engineered walnut flooring

If you'd prefer a different alternative to engineered or solid wood, laminate and vinyl flooring can offer very convincing replicas of walnut, and often at a lower cost. While they may not quite have the luxury feel or staying power of engineered wood, they have many of the same benefits – easy installation, low maintenance and suitable for nearly any area of the home.
