In Filipino homes, tiled floors are common for living and kitchen areas but wooden floors are also typical especially for bedrooms. For wood and parquet floors, varnish is recommended to keep them in excellent condition for a long time. Some households may also find a use for painted concrete floors such as in garages or perhaps for basketball floor markings if the family is especially keen on the sport.
Boysen has varnish and paint products that are specially formulated so they can be applied on floors. We’ve compiled them into a list to serve as your guide.
1. Hudson Polyurethane Floor Varnish
Protect and showcase the beauty of your wooden floors with Hudson Polyurethane Floor Varnish. Used for interior wooden flooring including parquets, Hudson Polyurethane Floor Varnish provides a tough, long-term layer of protection that prevents damage to wooden floors. It also gives an attractive glossy finish that’s resistant to spills (even from certain chemicals) and makes cleaning easier.
Varnishing your floors will require the use of both Hudson Polyurethane Floor Varnish sealer and then topcoat. Each is comprised of two components that are mixed together in proper ratios before use. This is just one of the reasons it may be best to entrust this project to a professional. Varnishing floors can be a complicated task that requires skill and expert knowledge.

2. Hudson Timbercoat
Here’s varnish for wood and parquet floors that can be used for both interiors and exteriors. Hudson Timbercoat is a polyurethane water-based wood coating that can protect your wooden floors and give it an elegant finish.
Compared to Hudson Polyurethane Floor Varnish, Hudson Timbercoat is water-based making it low-odor and less harmful to the environment. Instead of two components, it’s also only a single component—so no mixing of separate parts necessary (though the product does need to be shaken for several seconds before use). Moreover, it’s also a sealer in itself so there’s no need to purchase a sealer.
Hudson Timbercoat takes 7 days to fully cure and comes in gloss, semi-gloss, and matte finishes. It can also be used not just on floors but also furniture, fixtures, cabinets, doors, and panels. Again, calling in a professional to do the job is best for the inexperienced.
3. Boysen Acqua Epoxy
For paint for concrete floors such as in garages, reach for Boysen Acqua Epoxy. This water-based acrylic epoxy paint can withstand foot and light vehicular traffic while keeping your floor beautifully painted. For use on interior and exterior concrete floors and metal surfaces, Boysen Acqua Epoxy is low-odor, weather-resistant, and easier to apply compared to solvent-based counterparts.
Boysen Acqua Epoxy has a semi-gloss finish and comes in a range of readily available colors. A 4-Liter can can cover 25-30 sq. m. per coat depending on surface texture and porosity.
Again, DIYers may find painting floors to be more complicated compared to painting walls. If you’re thinking of undertaking the project yourself, make sure to familiarize yourself thoroughly with instructions on how to use Boysen Acqua Epoxy to achieve intended results.
*Bonus Info: Boysen Epoxy Enamel
Boysen Epoxy Enamel is the solvent-based counterpart of the water-based Boysen Acqua Epoxy. Both are epoxy paints!
