Engineered floors don't have this problem and are resistant to changes in humidity and temperature, thanks to their superior stability. This means they are more versatile and are even safe to lay in areas where moisture levels and temperatures fluctuate like kitchens, bathrooms and basements where you wouldn't dream of putting solid wood!
