Factors for Best Hardwood Flooring Shine in Burnaby

Deciding what level of finish sheen to choose for your hardwood flooring in Burnaby is important. The wrong shine and luster of hardwood flooring in Burnaby can break your design scheme.


Here are some of the things you need to consider when deciding what level of shine to choose:

  1. Know how much light is reflected.

To determine the luster level, know the light reflected from an acute 60-degree angle. This is typically the angle of which most people view the flooring. The light reflection is a good point of consideration as it can make it easier for people to sport dirt, dust or scratches on the floor. That means you would generally avoid high level of sheen on high-traffic areas.

  1. The type of hardwood you are using

Different Hardwood Flooring take to sheen levels differently. For instance, a wood with closed pores may emit a different sheen level compared to one with open pores. So if you have closed pore wood planks, going for a stronger sheen might be more recommended if you want the sheen to be more noticeable.

  1. Go for what is universally appealing.

If you don’t know what to choose, opt for the one that offers least mistakes – the satin finish. It’s right in the middle of matte and semi-gloss. It gives off a high-end appeal to your flooring but still able to hide scratches and dirt.
