Hey we just finished a new kitchen in the Laurelhurst neighborhood. There was some water damage and so my client decided it was time for a complete update. On finishing, there was a color difference between the old hardwood floor in the dining room (80 years old plus which the finish yellowed over the past decade since it was last finished) compared to the new floor. This has been an on going problem when trying to tie an old floor to the new, in a wide open space.
My hardwood floor subcontractor came up with the idea of screening the floor and using an amber colored toner over the new finish. After a few coats the colors tied together. After the 2nd attempt we got it right and even though tying old finishes to new cannot be perfect everyone was happy with the results. Stay tune for the final photos.
