The three standard floor finishes for hardwood floors are:
- High Gloss Polyurethane – is suitable for floors with low-traffic rooms such as sitting rooms, guest bedrooms, and formal living rooms.
- Semi-Gloss Polyurethane – ideal for flooring in moderate-to-high traffic areas, such as family rooms, bedrooms, dining rooms, kitchens & foyers.
- Satin Polyurethane –is the prefered choice for high-traffic areas, including kitchens and foyers, because it hides scratches better than all other sheens of polyurethane. The satin sheen is quickly becoming the more popular choice in wood flooring finishes because many people prefer the less lustrous and natural look of the sheen and the superiority in hiding blemishes. Satin polyurethane is what I have in my house and for me this is the best.
