Trend Watch: Stained Wood Floors in Bold, Bright Colors

The wood stain rainbow does not start at "honey" and stop at "ebony." There's a whole world of color out there–blues, greens, lilacs and reds–that are perfectly suitable for any decor style under the sun. Even if you're not the type to be daring with decor, this just might be the best way to bring some color into your world.

Staining, rather than painting, still allows all that great wood grain to show through, giving your room plenty of natural texture, just in a less-than-natural color.

A brightly stained floor is a great accent to minimalist interiors, too. The colored floor acts like a platform–a block of color that frames up simple black and white furniture and decor.

All in all, the look is bright and effortless. To try this at home, try out a colorful stain from your local home and hardware store, or mix paint and water to make a light wash that will showcase your same old wood in a vibrant new hue.

Would you ever go for colorful stained wood floors in your home?
