Engineered Flooring Finishes

The finish is the varnish-like layer which is applied to your engineered floor. Each style of finish brings its own visual appearance to the wood, as well as slightly different levels of protection.

Satin Lacquer Engineered Floors

A satin lacquer finish on your engineered floor creates a smooth finish. They are a popular, low maintenance finish. All lacquered finishes are more resistant to splashes and scratches. They also slow the colour-changing effects from sunlight much more than oiled floors. The satin lacquer finish is slightly glossy.

Matt Lacquer Engineered Floors

Having a matt lacquer finish gives an elegant, natural, less glossy coating to your floor. Matt Lacquer looks more like an oil or wax finish, but is more resistant to scratches. This is the most popular way to finish your engineered floor. Lacquer finishes slow the colour-changing effects from sunlight much more than oiled floors.

Natural Oil Engineered Floors

A natural oil finish is the most traditional treatment for engineered flooring and gives a natural, classic look. Oil needs to be reapplied more often than lacquer, but luckily this is very easy to do. Generally speaking, oiled floors offer less protection against sunlight and your floor will change its colour much quicker than lacquered floors.
