What is Engineered Mahogany Flooring?

First things first, what is engineered mahogany flooring? Engineered mahogany flooring consists of several layers of wood (usually plywood) and finished with a mahogany hardwood veneer.

Due to the top layer being mahogany, engineered mahogany flooring is able to provide the same aesthetic appeal as solid mahogany hardwood flooring but with greater overall durability and at a fraction of the cost.

Engineered Mahogany Flooring: Pros & Cons

So what are the pros and cons of engineered mahogany wood flooring?

If you’re weighing your options for which floor to choose for your home, here are some of the biggest pros and cons of engineered mahogany wood flooring that you should consider before making your final decision.

 

Mahogany Engineered Wood Flooring Pros

What are some of the best benefits of mahogany engineered hardwood flooring? While there are numerous benefits of engineered mahogany, here are the top four that tend to sway the favor of homeowners:

  • Timeless aesthetics. As with traditional hardwood, engineered mahogany flooring never goes out of style.
  • Compatible with radiant heating. Another benefit of mahogany engineered wood flooring is that it is compatible with radiant heating systems. So no need to sacrifice your warm feet for a gorgeous floor, you can have both with engineered mahogany wood flooring.
  • Multiple installation options. Engineered mahogany flooring is easier to install than traditional hardwood flooring and offers you (or a professional installer) multiple options for installation.
  • Increased home value. Unlike other contemporary flooring types, engineered mahogany flooring can actually add value to your home. There is little to no distinction made between engineered hardwood and the solid hardwood flooring when it comes to resale value (and as you’re likely familiar with, hardwood flooring can increase your home’s value a lot).

 

Mahogany Engineered Hardwood Flooring Cons

To balance out the benefits, let’s take a look at the cons of engineered mahogany wood flooring.

  • Cost. The cost of engineered mahogany wood flooring is comparable to that of solid hardwood. While engineered hardwood floors can be (and often are) cheaper than solid hardwood, the difference in cost is menial, making engineered wood floors in the same cost-tier as solid wood.
  • Fading. With all engineered hardwood floors there is the potential of fading due to the sun. To prevent your engineered mahogany wood floor from fading, make sure that you have curtains or blinds covering any windows.
  • Veneer thickness. Some manufacturers use cheap or a thin layer of veneer which results in a less durable engineered mahogany wood floor. This is why it’s so important to make sure that the manufacturer you purchase your mahogany flooring from is reliable and cares about producing high-quality flooring.
  • Denting and scratching. One of the biggest cons of engineered mahogany flooring is the potential for dents and scratches. You need to be very careful to ensure that nothing is dropped or dragged across engineered mahogany wood flooring to prevent unsightly marks.

 

Should You Get Engineered Mahogany Wood Floors?

If you are looking for:

  • Traditional, luxurious, and timeless aesthetics
  • Durability
  • Easy flooring installation
  • A slightly less-expensive alternative to solid hardwood
  • Moisture-resistant flooring
  • A floor that can be installed over a concrete subfloor

If you answered “yes” to the above questions, then congratulations, engineered mahogany flooring will suit your home fabulously.
