Hardwood Floor Refinishing Sign In/Join 
posted
I am looking to refinish my hardwood floors and staircase in my house. The staircase is in the foyer, which also has hardwood floors. I would love to stain the staircase a dark color, but don't want to go that dark with my floors. Would it look bad it the wood on the stairs was darker than the floors? Or should I just stain them to match? Thank you.

Welcome to the boards. I don't have an opinion on your question. I replied just to suggest that you re-post your question in General Decorating which gets lots more traffic. I predict you will get really good advice there.

I would appreciate if you show us some picture of the area. You have to consider your home interior paint on choosing the stain to be used on your floors & stairs. I see nothing wrong with different stains on floors and staircase, you just have to complement it with your decorations and all. My friend did the same to her house and it was nice. Good luck!
