Likewise, people ask, should I use satin or gloss polyurethane?
Polyurethane is applied to floors to give them a hard wearing and tough topcoat, as well as to furniture to give it a lustrous, shiny finish.

Similarly, is semi gloss polyurethane more durable than satin? Semi-gloss has a slightly higher luster level than satin. This means more light reflects off your floors. This gives a more formal feel that really highlights the beauty of hardwood. The higher gloss level of semi-gloss makes it slightly more durable than a satin finish.
