Questions one might ask

How to pick the right stain for your timber

One of the best things about timber floors when compared to other types of flooring material, are their versatility. As floor sanders for Brisbane Southside, we find many clients are interested in changing the stain on their timber floors to create a whole new look. It’s a simple way to reinvigorate your house and it can open up new colours schemes if you are looking to repaint.

So what exactly are your options?

Staining options

First off, as you may be aware, your choice of stain will be constrained to some extent by the existing décor and colour scheme in your house. For instance if you have dark blue walls (and you aren’t looking to repaint) a dark stain like a walnut or espresso is probably not a good idea. Similarly something like a liming white or lemon stain on pale timber, when you already have white walls can make your house look a bit washed out, (however some people have tried this to good effect).

Manufacturers like Cabots and Intergrain have really upped the ante in recent years, producing an overwhelming array of stains to suit every timber type, so you are guaranteed to find something to match your vision.

Let’s take a look some common shades of stain, and the pros and cons of each.

Light to white

Light stains have proved very popular in recent years. If you have blonde hardwoods you might simply opt for a clear finish rather than staining. Alternatively if you want to lighten darker timbers, you could apply a liming white stain (note this stain is not the same as lime washing floors – that process is far more intensive). If you opt for something light, like a silver, white or sandy colour your floors will not only look stylish and modern they’ll also appear cleaner and newer than if you went with a darker stain. This is because light coloured floors are better at hiding scratches, and concealing dust and dirt, making your maintenance needs lower. This means timber floor sanding and polishing is required less often. If you have a lot of foot traffic, (or kids or pets) going light is something you’ll want to consider.


If you need timber floor sanding and polishing it’s the perfect time to consider trying something really different. Move away from traditional colours, and try grey – you won’t regret it. Grey timber floors have proven incredibly popular in Europe over the past few years and the increasing numbers of grey stains available in our domestic market reflect the increasing popularity of this shade locally.

Grey stains come in warm and cool tones to match a range of interiors. Grey is also highly flexible, pairing well with a huge variety of decors. If you have marble (or faux marble) on your kitchen and bathroom bench tops, grey will complement this perfectly, similarly grey also pairs incredibly well with metal (for instance if you have metal staircase railings or metal accents to your furniture). Grey also hides dust and dirt effectively. Consider how much light your interior gets before deciding how dark to go with grey. Obviously if your house gets minimal natural light a soft, light grey tone is recommended.

Espresso or darker

Nothing says sophisticated and elegant like dark stained timber. Dark timber pairs incredibly well with stark white or cream walls and even pastel blues, pinks and yellows. Popular stains include ebony and walnut (or an ebony/walnut blend) and chocolate. The things you need to watch out for if you decide to go dark are firstly, dark timber will show up every scratch and every speck of dust, secondly darker timbers can make rooms look smaller. If you lack space you probably want to look at lighter colours. If you do decide to go with a dark stain, we strongly suggest you opt for a matte finish. Dark timber paired with high gloss is the ultimate high maintenance combination.
