Posted on January 5th, 2011 In: Blog, Wood Floor Oiling Blogs

Choosing a finish for your sanding wooden floor is an important decision. It will not only affect the way your floor looks, but it will also determine the kind and amount of care and maintenance it will require. Here are some helpful tips to aid you in making a choice.
Appearance
As far as appearance go, a lacquered wooden floor is glossy and shiny. On the other hand, oiled or waxed wooden floors have a slightly subtler sheen when compared to lacquered floors. Depending on the room in which the wooden flooring is and the kind of look you want to create, you can choose between lacquering and oiling or waxing.
Maintenance
On a daily basis, all floors can be easily cleaned with a damp mop. However, depending on the usage of the room and the wear and tear, oiled and waxed floor will need to regular oiling and waxing respectively. However, damage like scratches, etc. can be easily corrected on an oiled or waxed floor. In the case of lacquered floors, the damage is permanent and can only be resolved when the whole floor is sanded and lacquered again.
