    Oh, how I wish I had read this thread before I upgraded ($$) to dark, wide plank flooring. I thought, well, I like clean floors anyway so a quick vacuum everyday is no biggie. The debri and dust are definitely issues but it’s the footprints that are diabolical!! Clean feet make prints. Shoes make prints. So first you need to vacuum and then you need to mop. Everyday. The last thing I do before any gathering is vacuum and mop. Surprise company? Ack!! I really hate how much time I spend cleaning my floors or worrying about cleaning my floors. Not worth it!

    I just finished my renovation last week. It was tough getting all the construction dust off, but now that they are clean, vacuuming is fine. I have no issue with footprints, but we don't wear shoes in the house. I did ask our contractor to go over it again with poly because it didn't feel as smooth as I wanted and once he did that the floors were much easier to clean. finish definitely makes a difference. You can definitely see a lot more when the floors are dirty versus my old floors which were a dark walnut. The darker the floor, the more you will see. I don't hate mine, but would probably go a little lighter next time. I have 50% ebony and 50% dark walnut.

    This was stained in place, so show a picture to your floor installer, have them make samples for your approval before staining the materials.
  • Kyleigh C
    Was the floor a different color before or was it unstained before being stained in place?

    I would guess it is Revere Pewter. I've used it throughout my home and it's beautiful.

    Are the walls and ceiling the same color? How do you get such a smooth look on the walls?

    Keeping a light colored rug clean is no different from keeping a dark one clean - you vacuum regularly and blot up spills as they occur.

    I personally send my area rugs out for cleaning every spring/summer since I don't mind bare floors during the hotter months - it gives me the chance to take care of the floors underneath as well.
