impregnated floors aren’t
very popular, admittedly, but that's because
they're rather new and didn't have
time to establish a clear market yet.
The most important fact about
acrylic impregnated floors relates to the way they're
Instead of just
applying the color on the finishing touch of the floor, or using the

ones are, well, impregnated with color.
What this means is that sealant

Since acrylic impregnation works

spaces, it is rather clear how this relationship formed.
So is it worth getting acrylic
impregnated hardwood flooring? Well, it really depends on what you want
