Can I darken the colour of beech laminate flooring??

Postby AdsMail » Tue Feb 01, 2011 10:50 am

Hello every one, I've been looking at the forum since buying a bungalow with the better half and now want to put this question to you: 

Can I darken the colour of beech laminate flooring? 

We've got this throughout and would like to change it for a dark oak / walnut colour. 

The problem is that the previous tenant laid really good skirting over the laminate, and we don't want to ruin this and the well-plastered walls by ripping it up. 

Can laminate be sanded and varnished?

AdsMail,
If it is synthetic laminate flooring rather than real wood laminate then you haven't got a chance of staining it.
