Picking a floor is HARD!!!
Another week on the hunt for a great new wood floor has settled us on a contender! We stopped off at Menards and bought a box of this Hickory Hand Scraped…Hickory has a wide range of variegation in its natural state but when it is stained the variegation gets toned down. We’ve determined that we need to look in the brown and tan groups of wood in order to ‘go’ with our foyer tile and oak staircase/trim that is in the entry way.
A close up of the floor above and trying to visualize it below…furniture, drapes, and accessories will change as well as the wall color but just trying to get an idea if this is the one…
And this one is Brazillian Chestnut! Wow! A smaller plank but there’s some really nice coloring. A tad more expensive then the other two.
Another option was White Oak in a natural finish. White oak has lots of color variation and is naturally a little brown, not so yellow as the Red Oak…
The floor saga is still going so I think we are narrowing down our options!
