Wood floor finishes
Tread the boards with utmost confidence – there’s a wood paint finish to suit every country home.
Need to know…
Whether you’re laying new boards or lifting a carpet to reveal originals, the correct finish will provide your wood floor with a protective barrier. A coat of lye followed by wood soap gives the classic limed look, but transparent wood wax finishes in translucent white, grey or any colour that still shows the grain are easier to apply. Complete with a hard-wearing floor wax or oil. These are not as tough as varnish, but they give a rustic effect with the bonus that they can be easily repaired.
