Just so, is satin finish polyurethane shiny?
Currently satin finish is in high demand and recommended most by professionals today. A “Satin” finish has a medium to low sheen/luster and hides dirt and scratches better than a gloss or high gloss polyurethane finish.
One may also ask, what are the different types of polyurethane finishes? Like paint, polyurethane comes in sheens, most commonly satin, semi-gloss and gloss. Sheen is a matter of personal preference. Varathane Polyurethane also offers a new matte finish.
Also to know, should I use satin or gloss polyurethane?
Polyurethane is applied to floors to give them a hard wearing and tough topcoat, as well as to furniture to give it a lustrous, shiny finish. The main difference in a satin vs a gloss finish is the amount of shine. Satin urethanes have more flattening paste to take the luster out, so you end up with less sheen.
Is semi gloss polyurethane more durable than satin?
Semi-gloss has a slightly higher luster level than satin. This means more light reflects off your floors. This gives a more formal feel that really highlights the beauty of hardwood. The higher gloss level of semi-gloss makes it slightly more durable than a satin finish.
