Dark grey floor stain

Q: We are looking at purchasing an engineered hardwood floor for our kitchen – maple / graphite dark grey floor stain. I was told by a someone that dark grey stains don’t wear as well as they don’t penetrate as deep as other “lighter” stains.

Is this true?

A: I don’t think that would be an issue with a good quality engineered floor such as Mirage. The colour you are considering is fairly dark also. The greater problems occur with white which does show marks significantly.
