Why Engineered Wood Flooring is Better Than Ceramic Tiles

Engineered Wood Flooring vs Ceramic Tiles With Greenlam Industries

Wood Floors and ceramic tiles are number one on many renovation wish lists and for good reason. Not all floor types are appropriate or equally appealing for all spaces. While options such as engineered flooring and tiles have many takers, some have little knowledge about the intrinsic differences between the two. Options such as wood-effect ceramic tiles are available on the market but nothing beats the beauty of real wood and the many unique advantages it brings. This blog focuses on the reasons why engineered wooden flooring is better than ceramic tiles for most requirements.

The blow by blow

Engineered wood flooring is beautiful, hardwearing, easy to maintain, and available in a range of colors and species. Other reasons to choose engineered flooring over ceramic tiles include:


Engineered wood flooring is fairly easy to install, which can be done as a DIY project for people that are good with their hands. This is unlike ceramic tiles whose installation calls for immense preparation. They also require installation by a skilled tile fitter to get the best results. What makes engineered wooden flooring easy and fast to install is that it does not require any glue or nails as it simply ‘locks’ together in place. This is thanks to PlankLoc technology. It also gives your flooring a seamless appearance that endures despite the changes in seasons.


Wooden floors, especially engineered wooden floors, are unmatched when it comes to durability. This is unlike tiles which tend to buckle and crack when heavy items are placed or dropped on them. This is true even for the most durable tiles, a situation that exposes you to more costs and inconveniences by way of maintenance.


Ceramic tiles are a source of great discomfort during the cold season unless you are prepared to invest in underfloor heating. Engineered wood floors, on the other hand, are better capable of maintaining comfortable ambient temperatures as they are temperature neutral.
