When choosing a hardwood floor stain, color is important. The correct stain color will be pleasing to the eye and bring the flooring to life. The wrong color may make the room's furniture and wall colors clash with the stain. Whether you are looking for a slight change or a dramatic one, you can choose a stain color for your hardwood floor that will be right for you and the room. If time allows, make your decision as to what color stain will work best on the hardwood floor once the stain has dried. Finally, look around the room to see if the stain will look complementary to furniture, walls and accents in the room.
