All engineered flooring comes prefinished from the factory. The advantage to prefinished engineered wood flooring is that the factory is often able to coat the finish as many as 7 times or more. This creates an extremely durable surface that will stand up to a great deal of traffic. Still, the top layers of engineered flooring are made of natural wood and can be scratched or damaged by water. Engineered hardwood flooring tends to be much thinner than solid hardwood flooring and it is often glued to the subsurface though it can also be nailed or stapled. The thinner nature of engineered flooring reduces or eliminates the option of refinishing the floors when they wear over time.
"Pleat it like an accordion at the top and let it drape," advises Lana Lawrence, vice president of Anthony Lawrence‐Belfair. She also suggests working with a larger sample of about 2 yards or more to get a good idea of how the material will drape or pleat, especially for costlier custom window treatment projects. Designers advise that linen, silk, faux silk and velvet are optimum choices because they have the best qualities for hanging and draping.
