Hardwood Floor Refinishing Sign In/Join 
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.
