Nothing compares to quality engineered timber flooring throughout a freshly renovated kitchen. It’s versatile, durable and sustainable — what’s not to love? And despite the fact engineered timber is one of the most popular option for flooring in living areas, people are still wary about using it in their kitchens. Don’t fall into the trap of mistakenly thinking the moisture in the kitchen will ruin the flooring, or it’ll be stained by spills. Here’s why engineered timber is a visually striking and functional option for your next renovation.
Durable and long-lasting
The kitchen is one of the most high-traffic areas of the home, so it’s important to use resilient materials in your kitchen finishes. Engineered timber is a great option — thanks to its layered construction it’s more stable than solid timber. It’s resistant to variations in humidity and temperature, and highly impact resistant. As the years roll on, you can sand back your engineered flooring, giving it a new coat of polish and your space a new lease on life.
Kitchen tiles, particularly natural tones, show dirt more easily and no other area of your home gets dirty as quickly as your kitchen. Engineered timber, on the other hand, just needs a quick sweep — you can even run the vacuum over it. The only thing to remember is to clean up spills as they occur — a good habit, regardless!
You can customise your engineered timber flooring to suit your kitchen aesthetic. From dark dramatic tones to warm honeyed hues, your flooring can be as unique as your renovation.
It’s so important that we take care of our planet, now more than ever, and there’s no better way to do that than by utilising engineered timber flooring instead of kitchen tiles or other finishes. Only a thin layer of timber is used, and thanks to the fact that timber can store carbon throughout its lifetime, every cubic metre of wood used as a substitute for other materials reduces CO2 emissions. In addition to these qualities, many engineered timber boards are sourced from renewable trees (meaning for every one felled, a new one is planted).
Timber is beautiful. It’s a classic addition to any home and has the ability to transform your kitchen into a space that is uniquely your own.
A brand-new floor can bring your home to life, so it’s important to get it right. That’s why we’ve partnered with local Melbourne company Kustom Timber so we can upgrade your next kitchen renovation with expertly crafted and installed premium engineered timber flooring.
