Refinishing wood floors


I've helped other people refinish wood floors a long time ago, but I was never in charge of doing it.

I need to do my own floors and looking for a primer on the steps.

I want to use a dark stain on the flooring as well.
I have seen floors where it looks as if there is no polyurethane on them, just stain, how do they achieve this look?

Refinishing wood floors


if possible, keep the floors as light a color as possible. this helps hide dirt and scratches, etc.
they most likely used a satin floor finish to have it protected and not shiny.

Refinishing wood floors


we just refinished the red oak floors in our new house last month. We chose to use a satin/oil finish and are VERY happy with the results. The oil gave the floors a warm feeling, instead of the almost clear finish that the water sealer would.
