We used completely natural wood oil on exposed wood such as the floors. Osmo oil is a market leading product in it’s own right, as well as eco & non toxic. It’s made from plant oils, including linseed & thistle, that soak into the wood. It works with the wood, so it never cracks or peels, rather than trying to seal it like some varnishes that leave the wood as if covered in a plastic coating.

Product Osmo Polyx Oil Cost £1.20 per square metre per coat
£30 for a 0.75 litre tin
Supplier Brewers Decorator Centre Hull (formerly Humberside Decorative Supplies)
The price for a tin seems incredibly expensive, but it’s applied really thinly and goes a very long way. We previously used this product on a beech kitchen worktop, and after a couple of years of use it still looked fabulous.
