Need help with new dark hardwoods
September 12, 2013 in Design Dilemma
We went from white tile to super dark hardwoods, which I love, but we were trying to get rid of cleaning every day! Now it's almost worse, they show everything, paw prints, footprints, anything, and even if feet aren't dirty,marks are still left? Any tips? Is there a seal or something out there?

Unfortunately dark floors are worse than lighter ones. There is no easy fix for this.

I'm afraid you picked the wrong shade of hardwood stain if you wanted low maintenance. Dark hardwoods show everything regardless of finish, though I suppose a satin (rather than gloss) finish helps somewhat.
