The sheen is perhaps the most underrated feature of hardwood flooring. You may be hung up on the material’s species, grade, shape and configuration, but wood’s interaction with light should not be an afterthought.
The beauty of a glossy wood floor is its unparalleled ability to reflect light. It distributes illumination efficiently, which can brighten your space enough even during cloudy days. Flooring with this finish can be a good choice for tiny rooms, but it may require extra care and maintenance when used in high-traffic areas since it does not hide dirt well.
This type of sheen moderates the good and bad qualities of the glossy kind. It allows small amounts of sunlight to bounce around enough to penetrate deeper areas of the room. This finish does not expose dust and any floor imperfections as much, but it does not obscure whatever is on the floor either. It may be an excellent pick for a busy room full of hazards, which is why it is a safe bet for a kitchen remodel.
This finish is not too shiny, which allows the floor to quietly exist in the background and not attract unwarranted attention. Being able to look at home with both traditional and contemporary spaces, this type of sheen is so versatile and forgiving.
If you want something modern and hate frequent maintenance, every self-respecting design build contractor will recommend the matte finish. Its flat appearance allows it to appear clean all the time even when used in areas where your kids play or where your pets stay.
