I am a newbie needing advice on stain trim & door color....

issalambertApril 23, 2012


I am new to this forum and am not sure if this is the place to ask this. I am building a home and I have a medium brown stain on my Maple cabinets in an open floor plan. My question is what color stain should I have on my oak 3 panel doors and trim? The trim and doors are up and they are in a natural state right now and I am in love with the lightness! I should also mention that I have handscraped natural light hickory flooring throughout...Can I get away with natural doors and trim too? Will that look silly in the bathroom next to the medium brown Maple cabinets? Please..any help!!! I am desperate!

Thanks in advance!!!

All the red oak in our house is natural... we love it!

If you like the look of the natural wood, go for it. I don't think it will look silly with the medium brown maple cabinets, the differences in stain/no stain will look great together.
