Wood Floor Details

200 2 months 2 babies

The floors are finally finished in the new house (see more updated here) and I love them.  I posted a picture of them on our Facebook page and received lots of questions on the color, finish and who did them so here are the details….

– The stain is Minwax Special Walnut

– The top coat was done in a satin oil based top coat

– My contractor is Cesear Arevalo, 240.289.3831

I chose to use a satin finish vs. semi gloss.  The satin finish is what we did in our current house.  It doesn’t have the same shine as a semi gloss but I am okay with it.  Between the dogs, soon to be kids, etc. I think the satin is going to be more forgiving in the long run.

As for the color I think it’s a perfect middle of the road color, not too light and not too dark.  The color as well I am hoping will be pretty forgiving and hopefully not show every little spec of dust and dog paw print (unlike our current dark hardwood floors).
