Using Color Stains To Transform Your Log Home

Color is a marvelous tool when it comes to finishing your log home, especially when picking the best log home finish for your home.

Log & Timber Home Living recently covered a luxury Montana home that was transformed solely by changing the colors of the home. The transformation is incredible, and it is hard to believe it is the same log home. These pictures are a sample of the before and after shots of the home, illustrating the change in color and decor.

Before After

Choosing the right colors can give your log and timber home a warm, traditional feel that brings about feelings of the frontier, surrounded by nature. Or, choosing the right colors can create a modern, welcoming log and timber home that mixes the classic log home with today’s design influence.

There isn’t a wrong answer when it comes to selecting the color palette for your log home. The traditional approach has deep, rich tones of browns and reds, bringing out the natural features of the wood.

Pairing the dark features of wood, highlighting certain structural elements, and using light colors in large areas can give log homes a fresh look. Creating a new, modern traditional log home with colors is easily achieved, especially when using the family of Lifeline finishes which come in over 70 standard colors. 

No matter which style you prefer - or if you have your very own - we can help you get the best log home finish for your home in a variety of colors. Our wood care experts can answer questions regarding choosing the right finish, application methods, or anything related to the care of your log and timber home.
