Types of wood for dark parquet flooring
Dark hardwood parquet flooring can be created using a variety of wood styles and finishes. The most obvious choice for a dark floor is to use a wood with naturally dark coloring like Walnut, which has a rich chocolate hue with purple undertones and complex grain patterns that produce beautiful floors with or without stain.
For an antique or farmhouse look, our Eastern White Pine boards can be stained dark to create a truly rustic look. Or you can choose from our selection of reclaimed timbers to create a dark wood parquet floor that is unlike any other.
If you prefer another type of hardwood – such as Ash, Birch, Cherry Red or White Oak, Hickory or White Maple – you can always stain the wood to any dark color you choose. While we offer a selection of classic dark stains such as our smoky Blacksmith stain, Vermont Coffee Bean and Oatmeal Stout, we can also custom match any color you bring to create the ideal stain for your dark parquet flooring.
