URGENT HELP!! What color should I stain my red oak floors?
atinnerelloAugust 13, 2013
We are having our floors sanded and refinished and I would like to change the color. Our home was built in the mid '90s and we have a typical cherry stain on our kitchen cabinets and we 'had' a stain on our red oak floors that resembled an yellow orange cast. I would like a dark stain that looks modern that would go with the cabinetry. Most photos with cherry stain cabinets have the lighter floors that I am finding. Our kitchen is large and well lit . I am not worried about the rest of our house because the wood is white. Should I stay light stain or can I go dark?

with all that white everywhere else a darker stain will be a nice contrast and keep the richer feeling of your home. Be careful that it doesn't have too many red tones in it to clash with the cabinets.
