The cost varies based on the area, condition of the floor, and product quality, with prices generally ranging from £10 to £20 per square metre. This includes both materials and labour.

Your choice should depend on the desired finish and the floor’s usage. Oiling enhances the natural look and feel of wood but requires more maintenance. Lacquering creates a harder, more protective surface, suitable for areas with frequent footfall.

Varnish provides a durable and hard-wearing finish with a matte or glossy appearance but takes longer to dry. Lacquer dries quickly, offering a harder, yet potentially more brittle, finish. Lacquer can enhance the wood’s colour and grain more than varnish.

The best finish depends on your preferences and the floor’s function. Oil finishes penetrate deep, emphasising the wood’s natural beauty and grain. Lacquer and varnish provide a protective top coat that is more resistant to scratches and scuffs. Polyurethane is ideal for areas with high foot traffic due to its durability.

Typically, three coats are required—a base coat to seal, followed by two top coats to build up the finish’s durability and enhance the floor’s appearance. Additional coats may be applied for extra resilience in high-traffic areas.

A simple oiled finish highlights natural tones in the timber, while PU lacquer systems are a bit more robust in their make-up. Oil will penetrate the wood, whereas lacquer sits on top and acts as a protective barrier. Both options can enhance the natural beauty of your timber floors but have different levels of durability and maintenance requirements.
