I love this look on the heart pine floors – I have been told I too have these, covered by vinyl and then carpet, they have never been touched by a sander, satin, or sealant (there are a couple of sections that look painted (?)) Are those floors stained? Is a heart pine naturally “warm” or do they look this way based on a stain application?
Thanks I will get those pictures this afternoon.
I AM WANTING TO REFINISH THE PINE FLOORS IN A 1920 BUNGALOW. I AM CONCERNED ABOUT THE PINE ALSO BEING THE SUBFLOOR. IN THE DINNING AREA THERE ARE SMALL GAPS BETWEEN THE PLANKS. I REALLY NEED ADVICE. I LIVE IN mIDDLE tENNESSEE

I believe I have florida pine floors. I’m about to have them refinished and do not like the amber coloring. can I choose any stain for pine floors or am I limited to the colors on pine. even though I prefer the brown over the amber colors, I’m afraid to go as dark as I’d like because I do not want to make the rooms look smaller or darker. any advice for me? thank you and good luck with the bungalow…and family, Tawny
Tawny, you can certainly stain your pine floors any color you’d like. Of course there are some colors that will naturally look better and compliment pines natural colors. I would wipe the wood down with water first, then let it dry thoroughly before staining. This will allow the stain to take more deeply and evenly. Also, test your color choices in a closet or someplace hidden before making the final decision.
