White maple vs natural maple floors

3 years ago
last modified: 3 years ago

I am removing white carpet from our vacation beach house and want to replace most of the house flooring with hardwood. I have had wonderful success with maple floors in the past but have always had a dark brown color or gray. I want a light beachy look. We have no pets, but grandkids that visit frequently. Does anyone have any advise or experience with white maple flooring? I like the white better for the look I am going for but wonder if the natural would be better for long term style. I also wonder how hard they would be to upkeep. The kitchen cabinets are shaker maple. The house is NW contemporary. Any opinions or advise would be very much appreciated. Thanks
