PRODUCT IN FOCUS: Engineered Timber Flooring

Wood flooring is now the most common type of flooring used globally. Engineered wood flooring is composed of two or more layers of wood in the form of a plank. The top layer is the wood that is visible when the flooring is installed, and is adhered to multi-plywood layers of thinly cut hardwood and softwood plantation timbers, it’s placed and glued in multiple directions to increase the strength and stability of the top layer.


The results are stunning, and vary considerably depending on colour and size. Kate Walker Design can tap into a huge range of timber flooring options.

The timeless nature of European oak compliments both architecturally designed, contemporary style or any traditional home, so whether you building or renovating you can be assured there is a product for you.


Engineered timber products are used in a variety of ways, often in applications similar to solid wood products. Engineered wood products are often now preferred over solid wood in some applications due to certain comparative advantages:

  • Because engineered wood is man-made, it can be designed to meet application-specific performance requirements.
  • Engineered wood products are versatile and available in a wide variety of thicknesses, sizes, grades, and exposure durability classifications, making the products ideal for use in unlimited construction, industrial and home project application.
  • Engineered wood products are designed and manufactured to maximize the natural strength and stiffness characteristics of wood. The products are very stable and some offer greater structural strength than typical wood building materials.
