Project overview

In an area which is used as often as a kitchen, wooden floors can easily get scuffed and tatty over time. For the toughest protection from every day wear and tear, use our Diamond Hard Floor Paint.

Before you start to paint, you'll need to prepare your wooden floor.

First, seal any knots in the floor with our Knot Block Wood Primer and fill any cracks with the appropriate Ronseal Multi-Purpose Wood filler.


Our Diamond Hard Floor Paint can be applied with a brush, roller or applicator pad. For best results, use our Microfibre Applicator Pad. It'll hold more paint than a brush and gives a better finish. It's also a lot quicker.

Dip it evenly into the paint, ensuring only the pad is covered, then remove any excess.

Standing in the corner of the room, pull the Applicator Pad towards you in the direction of the wood grain. Work on two floorboards at a time, moving backwards towards the door.

You will need to apply 2 coats and allow 4 hours between each one.

Once dry, not only will your kitchen floor have a perfect diamond hard finish, it will also be resistant to flaking, chipping and peeling.

The paint gives long lasting protection and will be resistant to water, oil, coffee and even household chemicals, with an easy, wipe clean finish.

It doesn't matter how you treat your floor, you can relax, knowing it's got Diamond Hard protection.

Ronseal. Does exactly what it says on the tin.
