Wood Stain

Keep your wood beautiful, inside and out.

Wood stain feels like it comes in as many varieties as there are types of wood. A wood project can seem like a daunting task for any beginner, but paint mart will always do its best to make you feel empowered. The best way to start your project is by understanding the different types of ingredients in wood stains and how they affect your project. However, it’s important to know what wood you’re working with and what’s best for your project. From maple to cherry, and pine to oak, every wood has its nuances worth noting.

Soft Wood

Pine | Cedar | Fir

Not sure what kind of wood you’re holding? If it has blotchy patterns with uneven wood grain, you’re most likely working with soft wood.

Hard Wood

Walnut | Birch | Elm | Ash | Oak | Beech

If you find the wood’s grain to have a consistent flow and pattern, you’re probably working with a hard wood.

Wood Stain Breakdown

The main reason we use wood stain should be to enhance the grain. Stain can either intensify or diminish the wood’s natural look. Pigment, dyes, and binder are the main ingredients that can affect the look and desired texture of your wood.
