hardwood contrasting banding
We're having hardwood floors installed and the flooring contractor has suggested that between rooms, we can have a board at each doorway that is made of two narrow bands of dark walnut with a band of lighter oak in between. It looks cool, but my house is colonial in style, and I wondered if doing that is more Victorian.
On the one hand I like the contrast, yet I also think seeing the color of the wood uninterrupted by anything darker is also nice.
Any thoughts? I guess it just comes down to preference, but I'd love to know what others think.
