The Best Type Of Finish For Concealing Hardwood Flooring Imperfections
When installing or refinishing hardwood flooring in your home, you should consider a satin finish for a contemporary result that beautifully hides dents, dings, and imperfections.
Of all the finishes, like glossy or matte, satin hits the sweet spot between durability and aesthetic appeal. It has a subtle luster and just needs sweeping and mopping for upkeep.
Satin oil-based polyurethane is strongly recommended for hardwoods. It is highly durable, takes one or two coats, and enriches the wood color, but does leave behind an amber tint.
With satin’s gleam and strength, your floor not only will be elegant and updated but also will hide wear and tear well. You will, however, want to recoat every three to four years.
