Best Low VOC Wood Floor Stain Color Contest 2 TreeSap Toner, 1 Golden Brown, 1 Antique Brown
by The Director
The best wood floor stain color for this room had to work with white enamel trim, burgundy walls, and a dark honey tone upright piano.
Removing the carpet seemed to enlarge the space, visually. The existing hardwood floor was a frame around a carpet insert.
The homeowner liked the idea of keeping the frame and, in fact, featuring it with a single pinstripe of Purpleheart.
Thus, the stain color also needed to highlight this new feature. (What do you think?)
Straight ShadeMaker Antique was the first sample, followed by straight Golden. The third sample was a 1 to 1 ratio of these two colors.
Next, came the TreeSap Toner to lighten a bit at two different ratios. 1 Antique to 1 Golden to 4 Toner and 1 to 1 to 2, respectively. The latter was chosen.
