I'm looking for help with the appearance of the finish on my red oak hardwood floors.
I installed new red oak flooring in a kitchen area. Although the installer said it would be a reasonably close color match where it meets the older red oak in my dining room, I'm not happy with the results. Essentially, the older oak has a richer, deeper amber look as compared to the new flooring.
At this point, my installer has only put down the first coat of Polyurethane.
I'm curious to know if there is an oil based Poly available that is specifically designed to have a deeper amber appearance. If so, could I use the deeper amber poly on the subsequent coats of the new wood only to help even out the final appearance...
If not, is there any other way to make the appearance of the old and new flooring more uniform?
