Stain for Simpson Fir Door
March 19, 2014
What stains do you recommend/not recommend for a Simpson fir door? We like a warm, maybe reddish color, and our house is slate colored. Thank you so much!

I assume you're asking for a color recommendation, and without having a piece of fir to test it on, there's no way anyone can give you an exact answer.

What I would do is to buy a piece of fir at the hardware store along with some stains in the colors you like, and apply the stain to see how the color looks. You might need to apply a couple of coats to get the desired color.

You should also apply a wood conditioner after sanding and before staining to close the pores on the wood so it looks better. We use the minwax one:
