Hardwood flooring 101: Stain color choice

Hardwood flooring 101: Stain color choice

When you choose hardwood flooring for your remodel, there are many other choices you’ll have to make as the process moves forward. If you need help deciding on the perfect stain color for your rooms, here are some facts that could help you make that choice.

Color choices and why they matter


Extensive color choices are available for your new hardwood floors ranging from whitewashed to ebony black and everything in between. It's important to note that site-finished materials – the ones that are sanded and stained after being installed in your home – offer far more color choices than prefinished hardwood flooring.

It's also important to note that hardwood colors change over time, with some turning darker and others turning yellow or orange. Ask about how sunlight, sealant, and stain colors react to the passing of time and what to do to get the look you want.

Dark colors are best for large, open floor plans but work best in pet-free homes, as they show dirt and dander easily. Light colors hide dirt and dust, and they're a perfect neutral backdrop for a wide variety of décor schemes and interior designs for your wood flooring in Norman, OK.
