red oak floor install; neutral/pale sealer advice

5 years ago

Hi Houzz! My husband and I are going to be installing #2 common red oak floors (we have 25yr-old site finished red oak floors that are orangey and will be sanded to match the new install) throughout our first floor (living/sitting/halls/kitchen). I would like to keep the look of a pale neutral oak in a somewhat scandinavian style but not white. I like this remodelled look very much...I guess the color of sanded oak

I have been researching and can use three coats of a matte sealer like Bona Traffic Matte or perhaps one coat of Bona Nordicseal and two coats of a matte topcoat. Any recommendations? I am looking for high quality. Thanks!
