We are considering having engineered wood floors installed ... the brand that has been recommended to us by two installers is Lauzon. We prefer a dark color and are looking at red oak stained "auburn." however, if a naturally light wood is stained dark, will the inevitable scratches show up more? Should we look at Lauzon's natural brazilian cherry or natural mahogany instead, and will scratches show up less because those woods are naturally dark all the way through? Finally, if we ever decided to change the color of the wood to light, could natural cherry or mahogany be stained or lightened the way the red oak could be by stripping the "auburn" color to the natural red oak?
