Image Text: One of the best things about refinishing or installing new hardwood floors is the opportunity to choose a brand new stain color! Sand down to the natural color and leave it, lighten it up, darken it down, or do something in between. The choice is yours. Because there are so many stain color choices, this step can be overwhelming. Depending on your style and the colors of your walls, you may skew towards darker or lighter stains, but if you can’t decide between a few colors you can create a custom stain or get samples to help your decision. Jacobean, Provincial, and Antique Brown are some of Bona’s most popular stain colors, reflecting the continuous popularity of darker stained hardwood floors. Darker floors are essential to creating a cozy, homey feel that’s irreplaceable in any home!
