So we have just bought a house and the house we are moving into has mostly 'solid' wooden floors. It looks like maple flooring, but it is scratched badly and worn in most places so its all needs to be redone.
What do I do? Do I hire a sander and sand myself (no problem at all) then seal with some wax ish type of stuff or some sealer? I don't want a shinny varnished floor.
So the big question we are also wondering is can we stain it some other colour, maybe darker? I'm guessing no because when it wears the natural colour will show?
