Overview

When you’re choosing your wooden flooring, you may be offered an untreated, lacquered or oiled finish. When choosing what style to go with, it’s best to consider what atmosphere you would like to have in your room, what kind of footfall it will receive, and if potential spillages could occur.

A lacquered finish is one of the most popular due to the fact that it is incredibly easy to maintain, unlike other finishes which require a bit more care. You don’t even need to re-finish the wood as the coating is hard-wearing and is designed to stand the test of time. With this flooring you are covered by a manufacturer's guarantee, so you don’t need to worry about replacing the planks in the future.

Advantages of choosing lacquered engineered oak flooring

A lacquered finish is perfect for engineered flooring due to its high level of durability and stability. Any spillages won't seep through the wood because, after the lacquer has been applied, a coating is formed on top of the veneer – so you can simply use a damp cloth or mop to clean up any spillages or debris. 

The planks come fitted with either a tongue and groove or click lock system so you can easily install the flooring yourself. If your home is prone to significant swings in temperature, you can also "float" the floor (connect the wood together without attaching the subfloor). This allows the planks to expand as the temperature changes, decreasing the chance of warping.

Where to use lacquered engineered wood flooring

Lacquered flooring is a suitable almost anywhere in the home, but its water-resistant layer can be especially useful in places prone to accidental spills, like kitchens and living rooms. This coating not only helps to resist damage from liquids, it also helps it to withstand any potential wear and tear from heavy footfall.

Lacquered engineered flooring vs. oiled engineered flooring

Engineered wood flooring can also be treated with a hardwax oil for a more traditional finish. An oil finish tends to give a more natural appearance, and a more matte look to the wood, while lacquer is shinier.

Both options provide very good protection, although lacquer is normally considered to offer the best overall. For this reason, you might want to choose a lacquered finish if you're expecting especially high footfall. Lacquer also offers a more water-resistant coating, so it's ideal if you're worried about spills.
