Natural timber can be a stunning addition to any home, bringing a sense of warmth and luxury that not many other materials can deliver. With the use of stains and oils, you can ensure any timber will complement the colours already found within your home – whether you’re undertaking a DIY project, an extension, or you’re just updating old furniture. However, the difficulty comes when you attempt to match your new timber to previously stained pieces, especially if you don’t remember the previous wood stain you used. Whilst it can be difficult for everyone – including the experts – understanding what makes it so hard can help you choose the right colours for your home.
Lastly, it’s important that you understand that the wood stain will never be 100% perfect – not if you’re attempting a DIY project. If you want an exact match with your timbers (at least, to the naked eye), then we recommend working with the experienced team of commercial painters at Living Colours. With over 40 years’ experience, we’ve bought dreams to life all across Melbourne.
