Hardwood floor baseboard help
Hi - I have red oak floors select...I believe #2(currently natural finish). The floors are being refinished with a cherry stain. Our current baseboards and moldings around the doors/windows are hemlock with a natural finish. I understand if hemlock is stained, it may be "splotchy" as the softer wood will absorb the stain unevenly. I am wondering if others have used stained oak or stained hemlock baseboards with their oak floors and how they look? I am also wondering if oak baseboards will look "odd" against the natural hemlock trim on our doors, as the hemlock is very smooth/no grain compared to oak. New to this and have a difficult time visualizing, so any thoughts are appreciated. Thank you!
