This job took place in Neenah, Wisconsin and there are some pretty cool things we did here. The floor was originally stained a medium brown, which, at the time was good. But like most things, it was time to update the the space’s color. I’m always amazed by how much just changing the color of your hardwood floors can transform a space.
You can see how the floor has some cupping due to the space not being kept a consistent temperature and humidity. The floor was tested to make sure the moisture content was at a normal range so we didn’t cause any problems by sanding it flat. To learn more on where to keep your home’s climate click here
As you can see, all the old finish has been removed from the wood floors and they are down to bare wood. The floor is nice and flat, which now makes a good foundation for the Rubio Monocoat to be applied. We then water pop the floor, opening up the grain so the monocoat can penetrate into the wood fibers.
Generally when we use Rubio Monocoat we apply one coat, just like the name refers to “mono”. But certain species have a more open grain and require multiple coats of Rubio to ensure that the floor is fully protected. This is the first layer of color applied to achieve that custom look the client wanted.
Now that we have the second coat of Rubio on the wood floors, it’s time to work on transforming the mahogany herringbone border.
Another part of the project we had to tackle was the mahogany herringbone border around the formal dining room. We needed to get this as close to the final color of the finished walnut to blend the two different species of wood together. As you can see, mahogany is naturally a very red hue. This added another element to figure out, which is one of the enjoyable things we get to do.
Now that the floor is all completed and the furniture is back in, you can really see how color can change a space. No two floors and spaces are the same and neither should the color be that way. Custom colors can truly transform a space and make it your own.

“Aaron did a beautiful job on our floors. After 15 years, they were in need of refinishing. Aaron restored the original beauty of the maple floors and suggested a water-based finish instead of the oil-based. No more gold floors!!! We also appreciate that there was virtually no dust to clean up. Great job Aaron. Thank you for making our floors beautiful again.”
– Lisa Paul, Oshkosh
“Aaron is an incredibly hard worker with incredible expertise on hardwood flooring. I had NO idea the amount of information out there on species of wood, finishes, etc. and Aaron was so helpful in explaining it all and making sure we got the floor we really had cooked up in our imagination. We could not be happier! The price was great, the service was fantastic and we got exactly what we wanted. I would recommend Aaron to anyone!”
