WHY DOES WOOD NEED TO BE FINISHED?
A finish benefits wood in two basic ways: protection and decoration.
Protection means safety from moisture, or protection from scratches, dirt, and wear. Decoration means the finish showcases the wood’s natural beauty, colour, figure patterns, grain, and depth. It also enhances the wood’s appearance by hiding defects.
While there are many types of wood finishes or wood paints available, the most prominent ones are clear and coloured coatings. They can be applied on the interior as well as exterior wood surfaces, and are available in both oil-based and water-based formulations.
You can give your wooden furniture a super mirror-esque finish, a semi-gloss, rich matt or dead matt look with clear coatings. Water-based coatings which give off a soft matt look, have low odour and VOC, making them child safe & environment safe. Coloured coatings add a pop of colour and a unique style to your wood furnishings. These wood paints are available in numerous shades and finishes and are imported from Italy.
