Does hardwood color need to match stair bannister?
We are adding a family room addition and remodeling our kitchen. We are going to add hardwood to the new area and want to refinish the existing hardwood in the foyer and existing part of the kitchen. Currently it's natural oak. I'd like to go slightly darker but my existing stair railing is in the natural oak (although it does look slightly darker than the floor). Does the new floor color have to match the stair railing exactly or can the floor be darker?
