Flooring is probably the first few things people notice as a part of your home or office decor. As the flooring plays a key role in creating a distinct ambience, there are many options and designs available, which allow you to accentuate the appeal of any type of decor. The only challenge is knowing what to look for and then choosing an option that complements your design. That is where Mikasa comes in with premium engineered wood flooring, available in a variety of colors, designs, and finish options. To help you make the right pick, we give you an overview of the factors to consider. Take a look.

Wood Species

Although engineered flooring is an ideal option for the interiors of residential as well as commercial spaces, you need to keep in mind that different species of wood have different visual appeals, and therefore, go with different types of decor. Popular wood choices include Oak, Walnut, Maple, Sapele, Sucupira, Teak and Ash, all available in a variety of colours and grains to help ensure you get the desired look and feel.

Surface Treatment

Engineered flooring can be used in indoor spaces to give the place a sophisticated appeal. A lot however depends on the surface treatment you choose. Broadly, there are three types of surface treatments – smoked, stained and natural. While you can never go wrong with the classic natural finish, smoked and stained engineered flooring can be better choices for contemporary interiors. Smoked wood is processed to infuse a dark and smoky look to each plank whereas, stained treatment adds a layer of sophistication by harmonizing the wide variation of natural wood without covering its natural detail.

Surface Texture

Surface texture is another key factor to consider when choosing engineered flooring. The natural structure and texture is accentuated by mechanical brushing. As far as the choices are concerned, you can choose from brushed and non-brushed options. Moreover, you do not have to necessarily go for the same texture for the whole floor. You can choose contrasting textures and mix-and-match patterns to give your home or office a quirky feel.

Surface Finish

While it is a well-known fact that engineered flooring are among the most durable and elegant choices, not many people know that they are available in a number of surface finish options. The popular choices include Satin Lacquer, Matt Lacquer, Brushed, Smoked, and Stained, each carrying their own unique charm. The choice of the finish will largely depend on the theme of the decor you choose.
