You need a really good cleaner and refinisher and often they need to do layers of stain to get it to match. In the past, I have used a refinisher/painter not a floor guy.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to Houzz Tour: An East Coast Victorian
The foyer is a great example of the challenges this house presented. It was full of gorgeous woodwork but was terribly dark. She lightened up the wall color and carpet, had the wood cleaned, and added elegant lighting fixtures.
