Choosing a lacquered or oiled floor finish

Deciding between lacquered or oiled finish?

OK, so you have decided on a wooden floor and color that you love, great! But now you need to make the difficult decision between getting a lacquered or oiled finish. You might be thinking, what is the difference between the two and which one suits me best? Don’t worry, keep reading and I will outline the differences between them in detail and hopefully make your decision much easier.

– UV Lacquered Finish –

lacquered floorWhere lacquered floors excel is in its protective coating and the simplicity that comes with it. Lacquered floors require very little maintenance and protect the wood from surface abrasions, stains and dirt. lacquered floors can be manufactured with a matte, mid-sheen or high gloss lacquer, giving you more flexibility on the style you want to go for weather it be matte and rustic or high gloss and contemporary. Although lacquered floors require almost zero maintenance ( with the exception of cleaning ) they are a more difficult floor finish to repair, usually requiring a professional to screen and re-lacquer the flooring. [ We recommend; Mulveys Traditional Range  or Mulveys Wide Plank Range. ]


– Hard-Wax Oil Finish-

Oiled FloorFinishing your wood floor with a Hard-Wax Oil provides you with an extremely versatile and practical floor finish. Hard-wax oil is applied to the surface of the wood which sinks into the wood and embeds itself deep in the pours, this protects the flooring from within which gives you the ability to spot repair and touch up certain areas as they become worn or damaged on the surface of the floor. Oiled finishes will provide a more natural and unaltered aesthetic to the wood. It is important to note however that oiled floors require a basic maintenance every 12-18 months, this will keep your floor looking new and accentuate any colors in the flooring.  [ We recommend; Mulveys Natural Oiled Wood Floors ]

– Colors –

Both lacquered or oiled floors can come in a range of different colors, although there is some exceptions. Lacquered floors are colored with a stain and then sealed over. This stain will make the color of the floor more uniform, expect to see less variances in the color.
Oiled floors are done slightly different. Colors are applied via the hard-wax oil in the way of a colored pigment, this reacts with the tannin of the wood a combines together to create a unique color. Oiled floors that have had the color altered are more likely to have fluctuations from board to board.
