Minwax Introduces New Color Stains

CLEVELAND — Minwax has introduced its new Wood Finish Water-Based Color Stains, a line of water-based semi-transparent and solid stains, offering the largest color assortment on the market with more than 200 color options. Wood Finish Water-Based Color Stains are for do-it-yourselfers who want to bring out the beauty of their wooden furniture and express their personal style with color. All products in the line are available beginning in March at Lowe’s stores nationwide.

Minwax Wood Finish Water-Based Color Solid Stains are the very first interior stain product to deliver beautiful, saturated color while staying true to wood’s texture.

For those who love the look of grain, but want a touch of color, the Water-Based Color Semi- Transparent Stains are a good option.

All products in the Minwax Wood Finish Water-Based Color Stains line are thicker than the brand’s previous water-based stain formulas, making it easier to use, while still providing one-coat coverage that dries in an hour. Wood Finish Water-Based Color Stains are ideal for DIYers who are short on time but want to transform ordinary wooden furniture or home accents into statement pieces.

 “Minwax Wood Finish Water-Based Color Stains are ideal for those who want to bring out the natural beauty and protect wooden furniture while adding a pop of color to their home décor,” said Sue Kim, Minwax Senior Color Designer. “Our new quick-drying formula makes it easy for do-it-yourselfers to finish projects in a single day; the hard part will be choosing from the more than 200 color options.”

Different wood colors in rooms, need to pick minwax stain for floors?

Early American = Minwax...but I believe DuraSeal has the same version. The reason why your colours look different from the pics (on line): Red Oak. Red Oak will turn colours very different from white oak (everyone stains white oak for their stain collection because it turns a true colour). Red Oak is a different beast. It turns everything a cinnamon tone....lost of reddy-browns get added to the stain.

Secondly, if he used DuraSeal oil based finish (or oil modified) the floor will have yellow/orange tones in it. The FINISH turns gold/orange. If you apply natural oil based finish to white paper, you get orange. If you apply oil modified to white paper it turns yellow.

As for adding wood floor patch, it is a regional thing. Some do, some don't. In dry areas, the patch crumbles and falls out. More humid areas (like New England) the patch stays in place much longer....but it can still crumble and fall out.

I would prefer to see colour mixtures in a WELL LIT area (not a closet) if possible and with 1 coat of finish applied over top. Only a stain+finish will give you the best option.

You would have to ask him to bring other colours with him to add more test options as the ones he added where NOT appropriate for your tastes. This is going to take more time than he is willing to give you. Red Oak is a beast to work with if you do not like its colour family. It takes someone with patience and the ability/willingness to mix a SPECIAL colour just for you. Again, this is part of his service.

Clarify what colour you are looking for (get samples at a hardwood flooring store if you must) and then ask him to replicate it (send a photo of it next to the stains he put down...we live in the tech/communication age after all). Clarify what finish will be used over it.

Bona Naturale is a water based finish that does not amber. It is fast curing (1 week = full cure) with decent VOC specifications. If he likes it and is trained in it then work with it.

By the sounds of it, you are not ready to go forward. There has been plenty of miscommunication at this point and it is distressing. The problem with most "get it done" type of professionals is they are not the best communicators....they want a decision and they want it now. They want to bring in their gear and start. They want in and they want out and they want the job done yesterday.

Great energy for hard work like floors, but not great for someone who needs colour help. If you feel you are not ready to move forward, then don't. Another Houzzer had her floors done in a colour she didn't think would turn orange/brown (you guest it...Early American over Red Oak) and she HATED it.

You can pester him for more stain choices. Keep pestering him. He might just hand over your deposit on his own and ask you to look for someone else...;-) Not a bad thing if you ask me. Just make sure he gives you back the deposit.

10 Favorite Wood Stain Colors

When it comes to picking out what stain color to use for a project, there are many different wood stain colors to choose from! It can be overwhelming to choose from all the stains available on the market and know what the stain color will actually look like on your wood project.

I thought it would be helpful to round up 10 favorite wood stain colors and show samples of what they actually look like on wood. These are all classic, brown color stains, you can check out 5 gray wood stain options here if you are interested in gray colors and white wood stain options for white stains.

10 Favorite Wood stain colors infographicI picked these colors based on my tried and true favorites, readers favorites (based on an Instagram poll), and what seems to be popularly used. These stain colors are all easy to find at your local home improvement store or online. Also, they are all oil-based stains since oil-based stain is very common, affordable, and easy to find and purchase.

The stain color samples below were tested out on pine wood since it’s very commonly used. Do keep in mind that stain colors can look different on different species and types of wood. So, it’s best to always test your stain out in a small area on your project first to see how it looks on your piece of wood before applying it to the whole project! Also, if you need tips on staining, see my how to stain wood tutorial and the best way to apply wood stain.

10 Favorite Wood Stain Colors:

1. Dark Walnut by Minwax

Minwax dark walnut stain on pine wood

Minwax Dark Walnut was the first stain color that I fell in love with when I first started woodworking. It’s the perfect, medium-dark wood stain with golden highlights that show through the wood grain. It think it looks even better when it’s finished with an oil based polyurethane which really enhances the dark walnut color and the grain of the wood.

Here is a photo of my first DIY farm table where I used Dark Walnut.

2. Ebony by Minwax

Minwax Ebony on pine wood

If you want a bit of a black and brown stain color, Minwax Ebony is a good choice. This was my first time using it and it was a reader favorite. It reminds me of a tree bark color with the dark tones and it’s definitely one of the darkest stain color favorites.


3. Provincial by Minwax

Minwax Provincial Stain on Pine wood

One of my top favorite stain colors is Minwax Provincial, I’ve used it a lot! I think it’s the perfect classic wood stain! Not too light or dark, it has a golden honey hue to it that is beautiful. It’s always my go to color when I need a wood tone color that will go with almost any design plan.

Here is a photo of my DIY floating table and my DIY floating shelf, where I used Provincial for both.

4. Jacobean by Minwax

Minwax Jacobean stain on pine

Minwax Jacobean is a rich, dark brown color. It’s similar to Dark Walnut, but a bit darker and the golden grain hues are more subtle and bit more light brown toned. Jacobean is a beautiful, rustic color that reminds of cabin colors!


5. Early American by Minwax

Minwax early american stain on pine

One of the lighter brown wood stain colors is Minwax Early American. Early American has a more faded sun look to it which gives it a light, weathered vibe. It has a hint of red in the color. Another classic brown you can’t go wrong with!

I used Minwax Early American on our DIY bathroom vanity and loved how it turned out:

6. Special Walnut by Minwax

Minwax Special Walnut on pine

Special Walnut by Minwax is a lighter, brown walnut color. I found it to be similar to Early American but with more muted brown tones and no red tones. I’ve seen it used on flooring and it’s another very versatile stain color.


7. English Chestnut by Minwax

Minwax english chestnut stain on pine

If there’s one stain color that truly sounds like the name of it, I think it’s Minwax English Chestnut. It really looks like a chestnut color to me! It’s another one of my favorite stain colors and I love using it on cedar wood. It enhances the cedar wood grain dramatically! It looks a bit darker on pine, but still very pretty!

Here is a photo of Minwax English Chestnut on our DIY vertical planter stand, which was made with cedar wood.

8. Briarsmoke by Varathane 

Varathane Briarsmoke on pine

One of the most popular wood stain colors I found was Varathane’s Briarsmoke. And I can see why, it’s a nice mix of rustic browns and hints of smoky gray, with a few light highlights peeking through. I’m already thinking of my next project that I could use it on!


9. Kona by Varathane

Varathane kona stain on pine wood

This was my first time using Varathane’s Kona stainand I really like the color! It’s a very subdued, earthy brown tone with less golden highlights than some of the similar Minwax colors.

It’s nice that you only need one coat with this Varathane stain, but I actually added a second light coat on this sample to get a better sense of the color. And make sure to stir it really well before using since it’s a thicker stain and all the color is at the bottom!


10. Honey Maple by Varathane

Varathane Honey Maple on pine wood

Varathane’s Honey Maple stain is the lightest stain color in this round up! I actually used two coats on this sample as well even though it’s advertised as a one coat stain. It’s a nice natural wood looking stain that deepens the natural, grain colors of the wood. It does kind of look like a coat of light honey was applied to it!

Well I hope this round up of wood stain colors has been helpful for you and makes the stain color picking process a little easier! After you pick your stain color, make sure to sand the wood well when preparing your project for stain! It really helps with the staining process.
