I'm replacing floor in my house and I have made up mind about going with solid wood flooring.
I also want it stained in dark shades, but since this is not a natural colour of the wood, I was wondering, what happens to any chips that will inevitably happen in the future? Does lighter wood appear through them?
One of the advantages of solid wood that convinced me is that they would last longer and could be sanded/repaired. But if stained wood would make the repair harder I might consider a lighter shade.
