Unfinished, Oiled or Lacquered?

The finish of the board is purely a matter of personal choice and does not depend on the room type. All the finishes available are hard wearing and durable; it is only the final look that changes:

Pre-Lacquered Floors

Pre-lacquered boards have been factory finished with around 5 coats of lacquer to give a hard wearing and perfectly smooth finish. The lacquers are available in a satin or matt finish. No maintenance needs to be carried out on these floors only the usual cleaning. Lacquer is another word for varnish, they are the same finish. The lacquer sits on the top of the wood floor giving it a protective coat. The sheen on lacquered floors can vary from high gloss to a matt almost oiled look.
