Current Position: Home > HARDWOOD > FINISHES


All Beaulieu hardwood flooring from Beaulieu is prefinished using a variety of methods and technologies. Our most common finish is polyurethane but other finishes are becoming increasingly popular based on different design needs and practical requirements.

Both our polyurethane and UV-oil finishes are cured with ultra violet (UV) lights instead of using heat. This allows for several coats of urethane applied within a matter of a few minutes. And they both contain aluminum oxide for enhanced protection against abrasive wear and scuffing.
Some of our UV-cured, water-based polyurethane finished products are of medium gloss level to enliven the colour of the wood stain, while others have a mat finish to let the natural look of wood prevail. Woods finished with a water-based urethane are less susceptible to darken over time. This finish is enhanced with aluminum oxide for durability.
Our UV-oiled finish is a low-gloss, synthetic oil that is UV-cured and enhanced with aluminum oxide to resist scuffing. A UV-oiled floor does not need re-oiling or special cleaning methods. The low-gloss luster provides the look of a natural oiled floor, but without the maintenance. It also makes touch-ups and repairs less noticeable.
Natural Oil
A natural oil finish penetrates the wood fibres to harden them while not altering the natural beauty of the wood. Natural oiled floors are easy to care for and are repairable. An oiled floor never needs to be sanded. It only needs regular applications of maintenance oil to nourish the wood and bring the luster back.
The hardwood planks are sanded down to reveal a smooth, silky touch with no additional texturing or distress marks.

Wire Brushed

Wood floors with this finish have been abraded with a steel brush. This technique opens up the wood grain and gives it an authentic, rustic look.


As the name implies, this method of adding texture and character is done by hand, making each handscraped wood floor unique. Whether subtly sculpted or boldly distressed with deep tears and gouging, a handscraped wood floor replicates the timeless look of hand-crafted flooring. As comfortable with time-honoured décor as it is with contemporary spaces, it provides a look that is never ordinary.


A flooring purchase is a long-term decorating investment. Proper care and cleaning can make a big difference in retaining the appearance and performance of your floor over time.
