I think I hate our newly restored edwardian floorboards..

6 years ago
We've just had laminate pulled up and the original edwardian flooring restored. The original flooring is a fairly light yellow pine and although I love dark wood, there isn't a great deal of light in the back room so we went with a light team. It looked good with just a small sample stained but with the whole floor, I'm convinced it looks bright Orange. And I hate it. Obsessively! It's been laquered and all the furniture has been moved back - in 4 rooms and the hallway. So there's no changing it.. Should I have gone with an oak? Or would light pine always result in an orangey colour? Will it fade? Will I learn to love it?!
