Engineered wood flooring comes in lacquered and hard-wax oiled finish. Under Lacquered finish, you can have Satin Lacquer and Matt Lacquer. Satin Lacquer creates a smooth finish and gives low maintenance finish. It is slightly glossy. Matt Lacquer gives an elegant, natural, less glossy coating to your wood floor. It looks more like an oil or wax finish but is more resistant to scratches.
This is the most popular way to finish your floor. Hardwax oiled finish gives highly natural yet resilient and versatile look to your wood floor. It helps to show wood in it’s very best light and protects it from the harsh effects of day-to-day life. Natural Oil is more of a traditional treatment for flooring which gives natural, classic look to your floor. But natural oiled floors offer less protection against sunlight compared to lacquered floors.
