When you are considering installing a wooden floor, whether it’s hardwood or engineered wood, it is essential to take into account some important factors to choose the finish that best suits your lifestyle. Here are a few points to consider in your decision:

Oil Finish

Easy Repairs: Oiled floors offer the advantage of targeted, cost-effective repairs. You can repair or restore your floor’s shine yourself in case of minor scratches. Durability: Oiled floors are known for their durability and resistance to signs of wear. Matte and Natural Look: Oiled floors have a matte appearance that highlights the natural beauty of the wood. Regular Maintenance: Oiled floors require regular maintenance using specific cleaning products to preserve their appearance. Good Option for Pet Owners: Oiled floors can be a good option if you have pets, as minor scratches can be easily repaired.

Varnish Finish

Resilience: Varnished floors are resilient and can withstand heavy traffic. UV-cured varnish finishes are particularly durable. Infinite Color Choices: You have numerous color options, including single or two-tone finishes, to customize the look of your floor. Choice of Sheen: You can choose the level of sheen that suits your preferences, including ultra-matte finishes to mimic the appearance of oiled floors. Easy Maintenance: Varnished floors are easy to maintain with regular cleaning.

The choice between an oil finish and a varnish finish depends on your needs and lifestyle. If you are looking for a more natural, easy-to-repair, and durable option, oiled wood may be preferable. On the other hand, if you want to customize the color, sheen, and prioritize resilience, varnished wood can be the best choice.
