Lacquer is more hardwearing and long lasting as it creates more of a seal to the floor.

it has very good scratch, scuff and chemical resistance and has a clear deep appearance.

Oiled floors are popular because oil is relatively easy to apply and repair.

They provide a more natural appearance but do become dirty easily, as material penetrates into the wood grain.

They do require maintenance more frequently and are not really suitable for high wear areas or where frequent spillage occurs.
