Refinishing Red Oak Floors

ZenaTMarch 9, 2013

I am refinishing my hardwood floors in my kitchen. I currently have Golden Oak cabinets all throughout. Please advise what stain color on Red Oak floors would contrast with the cabinetry.

Right now the floors are a similar color to the cabinets, but they blend right into them.


Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

You can just finish the wood with a waterborne polyurethane over a sealer or natural stain...and the floor will be lighter than your golden oak cabinets. Or...color the wood and then finish with a waterborne polyurethane.
