Our new red oak hardwood is going down soon! Please share suggestions and pictures of your ideas for stain color. The hardwood goes throughout the house. I am leaning toward minwax provencial maybe mixed with something to lighten it up a bit. Thanks!!

No, I am really not fond of a look that light for myself. I do like it in some applications, just not here:). Thanks!

Haha:). It's in my mind! More of brown with only a touch of red/gold. I definitely don't like a yellow or orange look. Don't know if that helped at all:)

Be sure to look at the color next to other wood it will be close to (kitchen cabinets, etc.).
