For this project, Oak & Broad helped to create a custom stain for wide plank Black Walnut flooring. The final product was installed in beautiful modern home. Traditionally, lighter wood flooring and stains have been popular. However, the darker color of Black Walnut provides a timeless look that can be used to create stunning contrast. When paired with lighter wall and ceiling colors, the result is rich and airy spaces that actually feel lighter than they would with lighter floors and painted walls.
In this home, Black Walnut was used throughout in both smaller spaces more open rooms. The choice of wide planks helped make cozy bedrooms feel more open and spacious. Common rooms also feel more open and expansive. The combination of plenty of natural light and wood finishes helps to create a modern feel. Nature is incorporated into the living spaces for a warm and welcoming ambiance.
Black Walnut for Added Character
Once the homeowners decided on Black Walnut flooring, the wide planks were installed. Next, the floors were finished on site with a custom stain. They chose a low gloss finish that highlights the natural grain of the wood and provides a level of visual texture. The mixture of different plank lengths, which measured up to 10’, also added some visual interest to each room.
The addition of custom stained Black Walnut flooring in this home helped to create a distinctive look that was also understated and elegant. These homeowners will get to enjoy durable and beautiful wood floors that will last for generations with little maintenance and upkeep.
