A stain color chart shows customers the color options for staining exterior or interior wood projects as well as concrete projects. The charts typically show three options of stains: transparent, semi-transparent and solid color. Companies such as Sherwin-Williams and Behr offer online stain color charts.
Sherwin-Williams.com features charts for stains made by Minwax, Wood Classics, Woodscapes and Log Home as of July 2015. Customers have the option of viewing larger stain color examples, the color name and the color number.
Behr.com gives customers examples of stains used on siding, fences, decks, furniture and composite. Customers can also see the stain color name and product number.
