Q: Hi! I am in the process of buying a newly constructed home and one of the questions the builder has asked me is about the type of hardwood flooring I should go with. Should I go for darker or more honey-colored stain? What trends are you seeing that could help me make a decision? Cheers. -Sent by Nishtha

Editor: What a fun decision to get to make! I know I would take it very seriously, too. Readers, what color(s) of finish/type(s) of wood do you think Nishtha should choose? What trends do you recommend embracing or rejecting? What type of hardwood floors would you like to have? Please weigh in!
