Need help choosing a Duraseal stain color for maple floors

Has anyone had their maple floors successfully stained?

Our maple floors are very dark and looking at having them sanded and stained. Hoping to stay away from stains that might be too golden or too red.

Our flooring contractor indicated that maple is very difficult to stain, that it can look blotchy and the tigerwood pattern is hard to diminish.

We had asked about these colors; he indicated they would be very blotchy.

Special Walnut

Aged Barrel


Coffee Brown

Antique Brown

Spice Brown

Leaving the floor natural after it has been sanded would be too light.

Which stains worked for you?

Thank you!
