1947 ranch house- to stain or not to stain floor?
My husband and I just bought a 1947 Ranch style house. The living room is all redwood with fir floors that have been stained to match the walls. We are in a quandary as to what to do with the floor. My husband likes the rustic look of the old floors, and doesn't want to refinish them or change the color, but I'm bothered by the way everything in the room is the same color. We also have a lot of wood furniture and I'm afraid everything is just going to blend together. I'm wondering if we should refinish it and leave it natural with no colored stains. (Floors are fir) Does anyone know what the period look would be? All one color with the red stain or a more "natural" non-color coating on the floor? Any suggestions or opinions?
