Wood floor staining is a process of applying a colored pigment to wooden floors to enhance or change their appearance. Stains can add depth, highlight the wood grain, and provide a desired hue. It's common before staining to sand the wood to create a smooth surface. It helps for better absorption of the stain. This helps achieve a uniform and attractive finish. Staining can be a part of the overall wood floor finishing process. It may include sealing or coating for protection and durability.

What is Wood floor staining and finishing?

A stain finish involves the application of both. A wood stain and a protective finish. They enhance the appearance and durability of wooden surfaces. The stain adds color to the wood, highlighting its natural grain or providing a different hue. A protective finish like varnish, polyurethane, or lacquer needs staining. It is applied to safeguard the wood from wear, moisture, and other potential damage. This dual process not only beautifies the wood but also helps preserve and extend the life of the finished product, whether it's furniture, flooring, or other wooden items.

Types of Wood floor Stains

There are several types of wood floor stains, broadly categorized into oil-based, water-based and gel stains. Each type has its characteristics and application methods. The common components include pigments or dyes for color. A carrier solvent (water or oil), and additives for various purposes. Like drying agents, mildewcides, and penetration enhancers.
1.Oil-Based Stains

These stains contain pigments and dyes in an oil base. They provide rich color and penetrate deeply into the wood. They take longer to dry. Something they offer a durable finish.

2.Water-Based Stains

These stains use water as a base and dry quickly. They emit fewer fumes than the oil-based stains. These stains are easier to clean up. Water-based stains can have vibrant colors and are suitable for various wood projects.

3.Gel Stains

A gel stain has a thicker consistency, making it easier to control and less likely to drip. They are suitable for vertical surfaces and intricate woodwork. Gel stains often provide a more even finish on porous and non-porous woods.

Fantastic transformation. Would definitely recommend!
We highly recommend Artisan Floors! They were quick, extremely tidy and we are delighted with our (new!) Floors!!!!!!
Absolutely thrilled with the exceptional service Milen and team provided! From start to finish, the experience was seamless and professional. Milen is an absolute pleasure to deal with and an expert craftsman. He was so generous with his time, always available to answer my questions & chat through options. With Milen, you not only get exceptional service but also the benefit of his wealth of knowledge. My old worn and deeply stained engineered wood floors were expertly sanded and re oiled, and the result has totally exceeded my expectations. Milen's attention to detail and dedication to perfection truly shines through in the finished product. I couldn't be happier with the result, the floor is absolutely beautiful.Adding to the already outstanding service, Milen went above and beyond by returning the following day with a new mop and floor cleaning products as a thoughtful gift. I'm truly grateful for the exceptional service and the extra mile Milen went. Five stars all round!
I am really delighted with the floor. Milen was a hard worker and he did a terrific job and so quickly, and not a spec of dust anywhere. I would definitely recommend Milen and Artisn Flooring.
Don’t ever use these guys. Their bid was high, they suddenly had added costs, the flooring was not laid close to enough to the wall for the skirting to cover, the floor had to be refinished because of inadequate sanding, they didn’t show up when promised and took longer than estimated for the work. They made no attempt to have reasonable flow from the flooring to other areas. Just say no.
We found Artisan flooring to be an excellent company to deal with. Milen came exactly when he said he would and was lovely and friendly to deal with. Gabriel came on the morning arranged and just got on with the work with no interruptions. We have two beautifully finished floors and at a very reasonable cost. We couldn’t ask for more! I would highly recommend Artisan and will get them again when our other floors need doing.Thank you and keep up the good workMartin and Mary
Milen and his team delivered above and beyond my expectations. They’re workmanship was excellent, there was next to no dust left after sanding and both my floors look amazing now. They are very professional and thoroughly nice guys, would highly recommend.
Excellent service and the outcome is beautiful. Our wooden floors are 16 years old and I was apprehensive to rip them out and replace them as the quality was good, however there was a lot of wear and tear and scratches. Milen and Gabriel were so easy to consult with and they did an excellent job repairing the floor and giving it new life. Would recommend to all.
Very efficient and professional service.Highly recommended!
I have used Artisan Floors now on two occasions - once to resand and oil a floor and also now for a repair job - both times Milen and his team have been extremely accommodating, clean in the work and the follow up is excellent. Milen is a gentleman and he knows plenty about wooden floors - mine is a floating floor with underfloor heating - that did not cause any issues. I would highly recommend Milen and Artisan Floors. You wont be disappointed.
Mílen did exactly what he said he would, in the time frames he said he would, even after I threw a few curveball in myself with additional repairs.Price was competitive, but what really impressed me was the communication and clarity of explanations given which made it really easy for me to make decisions.I will be going to Mílen again for my next floor project for sure.
Accurate, punctual and friendly service.I hughly recommend this team.
We had a 1950s parquet floor that we wanted to repair and re varnish before moving into our new house. Milen and Gabriel did a fantastic job on it and we incredibly flexible around our schedule. Can’t recommend enough we are thrilled with the finish
I hired Artisan Floors to fill in / repair a patch of my wooden floor and sand and varnish the existing floor. Very happy with the results, Milan and his team closely matched the new wood to the existing and did a seamless repair. Sanding and varnishing done quickly and efficiently to a high standard. Happy to recommend Artisan Flooring.
Very efficient and professional service. I would recommend Milan and his team.
We had some 50sq meters of hardwood flooring sanded and finished by Artisan Floors. The work was done by Gabriel and Milen. We love our wooden floors, since they were laid some 30 years ago, and Artisan Floors have returned them to their original condition. We do not hesitate in recommending Artisan Floors. And, really, there was no dust, which you can see from the photo taken before furniture was replaced.
I recently had the pleasure of hiring Artisan Floors for a floor sanding project in my home, and I am beyond thrilled with the results. From the initial consultation to the completion of the work, their team demonstrated the utmost professionalism, expertise, and attention to detail.The quality of the workmanship is outstanding. Artisan Floors has transformed my worn, dated floors into a beautiful, smooth surface that has truly revitalized the look and feel of my home.I highly recommend them to anyone looking to restore or improve their flooring.
Milen was great to deal with from start to finish. He showed interest in the job and came over to see the flooring on a Sunday. They completed the job in two days and the result was brilliant. They sanded and varnished our wooden floor and it looks brand new! After a couple of days, Milen came back to discuss aftercare and advised us on how to maintain and protect the floor. We highly recommend Milen and his team.
Milen and Gabriel were a pleasure to deal with and did a great job for a good price. I think our floor looks better now than when it was new. As you can see, it was in very bad condition beforehand - too many people, pets and years and a previous bad sanding job had taken their toll. I highly recommend Artisan Floors.
Professional and fast service.We were particularly impressed by Milen’s responsiveness, he kept us updated throughout the whole process. Couldn’t recommend them enough!
We had Milen and his colleague at our house yesterday to restore our solid wood floor. The whole process was so clean, no dust, and the results are fab!! Really happy with the results, I've already recommended Milen to friends and wouldn't hesitate to recommend to others. We are happy customers. Before and after pics attached. Thanks Milen.

I have to recommend Artisan Flooring for really coming up top dogs for us just at the right time.

His subcontractor Gabriel was a nice chap who loves his job and knows exactly what he is doing. Very prompt relations throughout and exceptional delivery over a two day period. Super service.
Brilliant customer service. Quick response. Floor looks brand new. Highly recommended. Gave me the earliest booking and completed within a week.
