Choosing a Stain Color for Your Hardwood Floors

shutterstock_711852244Once you’ve decided to have the flooring experts at Clapham Floor Sanding put in hardwood flooring in your home, next comes this hard question: what color do you choose for the blot? It’s normal to feel a little pressure in making this decision, considering the investment and long-lasting nature of hardwood floors. But with a few considerations, you are going to pick the right colour in no time.

Items to Consider

  • Your room/home’s style: Choose a blot shade that enhances your home’s decor. If your design is more contemporary, a warm, red tone may not be the ideal choice. Similarly, traditional rustic decor might not quite flow using a grayer color. We can help you understand how different tones can complement or clash with your house’s style.
  • Depending upon the timber grain and pore size, the blot may absorb otherwise. During our first onsite consultation in your home, we can advise you on the best stain for your floors. We are going to show different stain samples in your floors, not on samples, because your floors may respond differently than the sample wood.
  • Care levels: Lighter stains are easier to keep because scratches, dents, dog hair, dirt, and dust don’t reveal as much. These lighter stains also show off the wood’s grain pattern. This may be great or great, depending on the number of imperfections in the wood. Darker stains will hide many imperfections on your wood, but might ask that you clean the floors more frequently.

We’ll Find Your Perfect Stain Color

We firmly believe the only way to determine the best stain color for your Indianapolis home is to test it on your flooring. While color swatches and color charts may provide you an overall idea of the color, nothing could compare to watching the true color on your floors. We’ll sand, homework, and blot a small part of your floor. We are going to repeat the process till you discover a colour you are happy with. Generally, it only takes two or three trials until we locate the perfect blot for you.
