Distressed engineered wood flooringdistressed engineered wood flooring

At First Floors we get so many calls from customers in the Glasgow area asking about the best engineered wood flooring brands. With so much choice available in terms of manufacturers and wood species it’s difficult for customers to know what to go for.


We have found that due to its hardwearing nature, Oak is the most popular choice due to its affordability, hard wearing nature and given the colour of this type of flooring it blends with lots of decors in people’s homes. Caledonian, Europlank, Rustiko, SF Design Collection all offer Engineered wood flooring in an oak species. Engineered wood flooring is constructed from three layers of strong real wood, with a very strong hardwood such as oak or walnut glued together with plywood or MDF and the chosen species as the top layer. It’s the top layer that gives the flooring its beautiful finish. The woods used are sourced from a sustainable source rather than exotic and unsustainable woods being used. Engineered wood is much more stable than solid hardwood as it doesn’t suffer from the same expansion problems.

We recently had First Floors install laminate flooring in our lounge and hallway and are absolutely delighted with the final result! It has been finished to a high standard with great attention to detail.

Having had a rough idea of what we were looking for, David helped find the perfect flooring for both rooms.

We were booked in quickly and kept informed throughout the process.

We would definitely recommend and use again.

Honestly so chuffed with my new floor. Everyone has been so helpful especially after I ran into issues on my end and had to delay getting my skirting on - everyone I spoke to has been so flexible, the joiner who fit the floor was really pleasant and quick too. Highly recommend!
