is it possible to lighten my hardwood floors – YES!

At Voyageur Flooring we are often asked if its possible to lighten the look of hardwood floors. We also are asked if its possible to darken the look of hardwood floors; the answer to both questions is yes but this post will show pictures of a hardwood floor that was lightened.

You can see in the first picture that the hardwood floor is much darker. We were able to refinish these hardwood floors and lighten the feel significantly. The old, dark stain actually drew out the grain patterns in the wood quite well. Some people, such as this homeowner, don’t like grain patterns or don’t want them to be over powering. In this case were able to minimize how prominent the grain patterns looked.
