What stain color is "in" for hardwood? - New hardwood floor. What r the current stain "in" options?
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
Hello Abundance,
Since a floor stain is a long term committment, i wouldnt necessarily go with what is 'in' right now, unless you have a generous allowance, would not mind refinishing your floors in 5 years, or have no plans to resell in the near future. What should be considered is the species of wood? Some hardwoods, like oak, will take a stain better than other. Your built-in cabinet color-stain or painted? Your furnishings-traditional or contemporary? Daily maintainance-pets? Kids? Finally-budget. Most builders will charge a standard per square foot cost for standard staining. A stain that would be considered out of the realm of standard would be charged as such. Now, back to your question-a beautiful French Oak finish (
Manoir Gray Custom Aged French Oak Floors · More Info
) would be my pick, if I had open floor space where it could be appreciated.The species of wood does affect the color. What ever you do, test the color on your wood species.
Hope this helps your decision-

The fixture was hanging in the casual dining area. I replaced that with a crystal chandelier and move the contemporary fixture into the powder room.
Lorraine-sorry sooo late in answering. I just saw your question!

Storage is definitely a concern in a bathroom that is used often-master, guest, children. I would only use one in a powder room if they are really great looking and make a statement, like this one. They are usually too small and generic for my taste.
The mirror was purchased from a catalog no longer in business.

This fab mirror was left with the house when we purchased it! I had it silver foiled to go with the wall paper. That great hanging light fixture was originally in the breakfast dining area! Originally located in different rooms, I combined them in this small powder room for the 'Wow' factor. I always propose a special effect that is a departure from the rest of the home. It demonstrates the contemporary decor of the home before I redirected it to a comfortable transitional look.

That light is by LBL lighting, called the Baybridge. It is available in a 3 light as well as a 5 light version.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Jason Ball Interiors, LLC added this to 8 Great Ways With Silver Leaf
Create something unexpected. Powder rooms are great spaces for a little experimentation to come up with a design that is truly special. The traditional damask wall covering and traditional pedestal sink are paired with a contemporary light and this striking silver-leafed mirror frame. This is a perfect way to greet visitors.

Shoshana Gosselin added this to Top 10 Reasons to Give Your Home Some Sparkle
3. Shiny details can create a "wow" moment even in a small space. Distract from how small a space is with shiny details. Change out the mirror in a powder room with one that has a frame that sparkles, use wallpaper with a shiny texture or change out fixtures to glitzier ones.
Kristy Woodson Harvey and Beth Woodson added this to Crown Your Pedestal Sink With a Fitting Mirror
While unadorned mirrors can work well in most spaces, a tiny room needs a big statement. A gorgeous mirror with an iridescent frame makes this room shine.
