Understanding Wood Floor Stains: Types and Techniques

What are Wood Floor Stains?

Wood floor stains play a crucial role in achieving a flawless and uniform appearance. Traditionally, they were used as a base coat to seal porous wood species like oak or ash, creating a smooth surface for the final finish. However, modern finishes often eliminate the need for sealers. Instead, stains are utilized to address color variations and create an even tone. In fact, applying a coat of stain can replace the initial finish coat.

Exploring Wood Stain Options

Wood floor stains come in various types, each with its own technical characteristics. Two primary categories of wood floor staining products include the tinting medium and the carrying medium. Typically, stains derive their color from dyes, pigments, or a combination of both. Dye stains dissolve in the medium, effectively coloring the wood grain through absorption. On the other hand, pigment stains distribute and suspend the pigments without directly coloring the wood grain. Pigments provide less absorption and adhesion, resulting in finishes applied over pigment stains being less durable compared to those over dye stains.
