I need to choose a floor stain and finish for my White Oak floors in my small Manhattan apartment.
COLOR: I previously had dark brown flooring which made the space feel small. I'm leaning towards either DuraSeal Country White or Weathered Oak. My walls and trim are Decorators White (bright white).
My contractor said they need to fill the gaps in the flooring still - but i'm worried the white will show these imperfections and gaps more than the brown?
FINISH: I also need help with the finish - they tested Bona High Traffic in Matte which has left the floors feeling very rough and unfinished. So rough that I asked the contractor if they sanded yet - which he said they did!
