The shine of a varnished floor plays an essential role in the overall appearance of your wooden floor. At SOLŪ Hardwood, we offer a range of shines from 8% to 80%, and each option has its specific advantages. Here’s a guide to help you choose the varnished floor shine that best suits your lifestyle:

8% Shine (Deadflat): This option provides a matte appearance that mimics oiled floors, accentuating the natural beauty of the wood, especially antique and brushed finishes. However, it’s important to note that footprints and general maintenance may be slightly more noticeable.

10% and 20% shine: These shines are an ideal compromise to reduce maintenance while maintaining a modern look. Matte varnishes tend to age gracefully, making wear marks less visible over time.

35% Shine (Satin): Satin shine gives a silky appearance to your floor, making it a popular choice for those seeking a balance between shine and practicality. It’s versatile and suits most decors.

Semi-Gloss (55%): This shine reflects light and the room’s decor. However, it may reveal dust accumulation, so regular maintenance is essential.

High-Gloss (65% and above): Higher shines offer a traditional look reminiscent of varnishes applied on construction sites in the past. They create an almost lacquered or mirror-like effect. However, imperfections and scratches are more visible in higher shines.

The choice of shine will depend on your personal preferences, the look you want for your interior, and your comfort level with maintenance. At SOLŪ Hardwood, we are here to answer all your questions and assist you in making the choice that best fits your needs. Feel free to contact us for more information!
