Hardwood Floor Staining Colors
Most homeowners already have a stain color picked out prior to inquiring about having their floors refinished. However, we can also discuss how different colors will differ depending on the species of hardwood you have. As part of our service refinishing hardwood floors, we can change the color for those looking for color change. Traditionally, dark stains were used on lighter hardwoods to create a more dramatic effect and hide some of the natural grain in light wood. Darker wood stains also cover up any imperfections better. However, as time passes, some people may find that a darker stain does not give them enough contrast between the floor and their rugs, furniture, and walls. If this sounds like you, you might want to try using a lighter stain on your hardwoods for a similar effect with less upkeep. There are many different types of stains out there so it’s important to do your research before making a decision!
Different Types of Stains
Stains come in many different colors. So, there are plenty of options for you to choose from when it comes time to stain your hardwoods. When you’re looking for a new stain, there are some factors that you should keep in mind.
