Most of the time, hardwood home finishes have been stained a particular color to stay in keeping with the home's theme. We also stain our mantels so that they will match other interior wood tones and look like the mantel has been there since day one.
We wanted a way to stay true to the natural wood tones in a hardwood without changing the appearance with colored oil stain. That is why we offer our Tung Oil rub finish. At the same price as colored stained finishing, we apply the natural Tung Oil to the wood enhancing the wood color and make the grain pattern more pronounced. This finish is great because it enhances that natural wood coloration without altering it.
We have the ability to custom match your existing hardwood colors. This includes hardwood floors, wood trim, furniture, or cabinetry. Just send us a wood color sample and we can computer-match the color and apply to your new mantel!
