Dark stair treads..lighter floors

belfemMarch 18, 2011

Do stair treads and wood floor stains have to match? I would love to stain my stairs red mahogany. The risers are painted white. My floors have a cherry stain.

If you have samples of darker stair treads and lighter floors, I'd love to see them.

We call them accent treads. Elegant to say the least. Good luck.

It is very traditional to have darker treads than floors.
