I Have This Thing for Ochre

We’re in the stage of our home renovation project that’s technically the fun bit, but possibly the most confusing bit too!…the decorating and furnishing! I’ve always been into interior design and as I’m in the blogging world, have lots of interiors insta-blogger friends…this is part of the problem.

For many, you can’t beat the look and feel of a genuine wooden floor, but it can be expensive and isn’t necessarily the most practical, so engineered wood flooring is a great alternative. ,

But how is engineered wood flooring so different? And what is it that’s making it so popular?
