I'm thinking about having a dark stained wood floor in our new house.
What would be a good choice of wood and stain color combination?
Really don't want any golden or orange tones. Prefer just dark dark
brown. Leaning toward white oak. Would a dark wax be an option?
Hi, Provincial looks nice on white oak. It tends to be about the same
tone only darker and brings out the grain, expecially if there's any
quarter sawn mixed in. As for the wax...depends on how much upkeep you
want to do. I suggest an oil based finish, personally.

White oak? Fume it with ammonia. It goes deeper into the wood so
scratches wouldn't be exposing undyed wood. Cherry might be another
option for you. It darkens naturally.
Dark wax would be used in the pores of fumed white oak if you didn't
fill them with finish, but it wouldn't be anywhere nearly thick enough
to darken wood.
