Finish of walnut floors? - Is the floor finished with poly (water or oil) or is it a oil finish? Doesn't seem to have much sheen which makes this look even richer.

I noticed fading in direct sunlight on my own finished in place walnut floors. The UV coating should definitely help with this. Best, Kelly

@soledad builders - Thanks Kelly, were your floors natural or a darker stained walnut, is fading so noticeable you're thinking of refinishing, and how long were floors in place when you noticed fading? Seems the UV intensity and direction of light matters too. Have your floors stayed darker under rugs as well? The UV protectant in the flooring finish along with the LowE glass will help some but I've heard all protectants eventually become less effective. Sorry for all the questions but our flooring is ordered now and we're a bit nervous about the fading possibility as well as having a softer wood. Hopefully it'll be gorgeous enough to overlook these little flaws! ;) any other tips and info is appreciated, thanks!

Could you tell me the stain that was used for the walnut floors? - I have new oak floors and will be refinishing an adjoining room at the same time. Do you think the oak floors will come out a similar color? Thanks.

I believe my new floors are white oak and the original LR floors may be a mixture. I am trying to avoid yellow or red tones as my (now open) kitchen has cool colors. I also like the the matte finish. My house and neighborhood are traditional and I think too light or too dark would be too modern. Thanks for the advice.

Although you can't make red oak or white oak look like walnut because they have different grain patterns, you could certainly stain the oak a darker color to complement the walnut. Minwax and DuraSeal have colors such as Dark Walnut, Modern Walnut, and Special Walnut. Those will take out the red and yellow colors in the oak. Darker floors are a little more maintenance because they can show more dust, pet hair, etc. However, darker floors are traditional, don't worry about it being too modern. They won't go out of style.

I think the island is close to 2'x6.5' (cabinet). The other side had an oven, the microwave and a cabinet. The countertop hangs over approx. 12". Best, Kelly

The flooring is finished in place, solid 3/4" select walnut. This is something that your local hardwood flooring installer should be able to source for you. Best, Kelly

These were sanded & finshed in place with a very light stain, just enough color to enhance the walnut, but not too dark to show dust / dirt. I don't have the stain color in our files, Sorry! Best, Kelly

Walnut floors with a very light, almost natural stain. Just a little color to richen it, however the unique graining and color variation that is inherent to Walnut is still visible.
