Wooden furnishings, flooring and other features like banisters and exposed roof beams all add character and atmosphere to any home. The fact that the materials are natural means you feel closer to nature, and you also get the advantage of unique graining, resulting in a one of a kind aesthetic effect. Wood also makes rooms feel warmer and more welcoming.

When it comes to wooden floors and features, you need to ensure they are given the best protection. Dust and moisture can damage wood, and surfaces can also get scratched and damaged over time. To protect timbers, you should ensure they are cleaned regularly, including polishing and waxing. Alternatively, you can stain, varnish, lacquer or glaze them if you want to add a protective yet highly decorative layer.

There are a wide range of options when it comes to interior wood finishes so you can select the best one for your needs. When choosing it is important to weigh up the amount of protection you want and the type of finish so you can make the right choice. You'll need to account for the amount of time that various products need to cure and the conditions you need when using them. Some should only be used in well ventilated areas because of the strong smells.
