Benefits of Oil over Lacquer:
While both floor oils and lacquers are for finishing unfinished/sanded boards there are a few noteworthy differences.
- Oils are made from natural vegetable oils while lacquers are usually high in toxins. Because of this oils aren’t just better for the environment but also have less odour during application.
- Oils are designed to penetrate the board and accentuate the grain & tannins while lacquer is designed to sit as a protective film over the board. With this in mind an oiled floor will always feel more natural.
- You can spot treat scratches/scuffs on an oiled finish while this is impossible on a lacquered finish. If you should have a mark on an oiled floor you can sand and re oil that specific spot while on a lacquered floor you must sand the entire room.
- The colour choices are endless with an oiled floor. You can basically pick any colour you wish or even design your own colour with oils whereas with lacquers you are restricted.
