We're on our ninth swatch of stain to consider - leaning towards Special Walnut. Thoughts on this: (1) Color Tone.... We have fir beams and a white oak floor. Compatibility is an issue. Fir is naturally pretty yellow, and sometimes pink. White oak is much cooler, and can read almost gray-green. So stain is definitely necessary to make these guys friends in the same space. (2) Dark vs Light... Right now I love light floors, particularly wide-plank light floors with no finish. It feels Old English or Scandinavian - hardworking, utilitarian. But for the cabin, light won't work for two reasons - white oak's lightest possibility is its natural tone, which isn't compatible with the stained beams; and even if it did coordinate in tone, super light floors show dirt, and dirt will be a big part of cabin life. This leads us to dark.... Very dark floors can be beautiful, but they also show dirt - dust more particularly. (3) Wood Floor Trends... The overall problem with both very light and very dark floors is that they are trendy and can date a space. (This is also very true for tones - think cherry reds of the late 80s, blond maples of the 90s, and the washed-out grays of today.) But you know what color and tone of wood floor never really goes out of style because it's never really in style? Medium browns. Not too red, not too yellow, not to gray/dead, just even-toned, slightly warm browns. They feel alive and serviceable. Special Walnut's tone seems to coordinate with the log beams, and it will likely provide enough contrast with them to not appear like a failure-to-match. We still have a few weeks to decide, though, so we will keep thinking on it.... / / . . . #bonastain #dur#durasealn #duraseal #specialwalnut #earlyamerican #builtinbeds #tongueandgroove #woodfloorswatches #woodfloorstain #wideplankwoodfloor #wideplankflooring #whiteoakflooring #firbeams #logbeams #cabinbeams #cabindecor #cozycabin #provincialstain #darkwalnut
