Whatever color you choose should harmonize with your overall decor, but also think about things like plank width or whether you want domestic or exotic wood. Harvested within North America, domestics tend to be warmer and more traditional. Some, like white oak or hickory, are harder than others. Exotic woods are harvested from Brazil, Indonesia, Africa, and Southeast Asia and are all very hard, dark, and dramatic.
Many people prefer pre-finished because they know right away what they are getting and can start coordinating even before the floors arrive. In addition, some feel that pre-finished floors are a little more durable since a commercial-grade finish, not available for use in households, is applied. They also like that there's no mess or odor to clean up.
On-site, however, offers a greater range of colors and sheen. This makes many feel as though they have more control over the look of the floor. The floors are also a little smoother since they're usually sanded between coats, and this is when you should discuss whether to go with an oil, water-based, or polyurethane finish.
