Straightforward way to reduce hardwood floor shine?
January 15, 2013 4:41 PM Subscribe
My very dark strand woven bamboo hardwood floors have a semi-glossy finish. Even after they've been freshly mopped, every speck of dust is visible and they'll look dirty the minute someone – wearing socks fresh out of the laundry, even – walks across the room. Is there any way I can change their finish to matte?

The floor (similar to this
, but looking at a spare board, only the top 2 mm or so are stained) is several months old, beautiful and otherwise great, in the sense that my 65 lbs dog has not been able to scratch it one bit. However, they look dirty all the time
I just spend several weeks with my (shedding) dog in a home with matte finish hardwood floors and believe that it's exactly what I want in my house. Is this even possible? What would the process entail? If so, any idea how much it would cost in a 3,000 sq.ft. Seattle home?
