Typically homeowners face a tough decision when choosing between an oiled and lacquered finish for their new wood floor. But now there’s another option. Extra Matt is being touted as a catch-all compromise, offering that high-end matt look, but with all the protection of a lacquered alternative. The finish has been developed by flooring specialist Quick-Step.

Traditionally, specifiers would opt for a lacquered finish for premium protection from scratches and stains, or an oiled finish if they favoured a more organic, high-end matt look. The result was that the lacquered flooring style found favour as the best all round option for a family home. The down side was a somewhat shinier finish; giving a slightly less natural look to oiled alternatives.

The new look planks are available in a number of Quick-Step engineered wood designs, and can be chosen to suit rustic, classic and contemporary designs. The Quick-Step Extra Matt floors are priced from £50 per square metre. For more information visit www.quick-step.co.uk
