I would like to ask a couple of questions about varnishing a floor..
I have sanded back my dining room floorboards using 60 grit as recommended in my DIY books, (fixed the vandalism that the plumbers did when they fitted the central heating - why do they just rip up the boards) and am not ready to varnish the floor.
As I've no reference to go on do folk recommend a gloss, silk or matt finish?
Also I have an 18month old and want to avoid subjecting him to the usual varnish stink that many of the polyurethane varnishes give off... Do any of the brands give of less toxic fumes?
Thanks for any advice,
