Sanded Floor Colouring & Effects

Changing the atmosphere of your sanded floor

With some skill, care and attention, amazing effects can be created with properly sanded floors.

Colouring or staining a floor is an option that some people go for if they want to change the colour of the wood.

Often this is necessary if the wood is very blond, such as pine and you want a darker effect. See the gallery for examples or request a brochure.

In addition to colouring, we can apply washes and other special effects to achieve the desired result.

What Type of Colour to Use?

There are many different brands and types of colour on the market, some are better than others.

Choosing a colour type such as water based or spirit based, depends on a number of factors such as top seal type, application skill, wood type and room location.

Underneath polyurethane seals The Professional Floor Sanding Company recommends Morrells spirit based stains (see chart on the left).

Underneath wax oil we recommend Osmo Translucent wax oil colour.

Warning! Colouring a sanded floor well requires considerable care

Consult an expert for advice before you proceed. Remember that colours look different on different woods, different when stained and certainly different from a stain chart.

Hint: make sure that ALL surface marks and blemishes in the floor are polished out before you apply colour. Applying stain to a wooden floor will show up all imperfections when sealed. You've been warned.
