Can I mix white and oak trim?
We moved into a house that is totally trimmed in oak. To me it looks outdated, but I realize it would be a herculean effort to replace all the trim and door casings. That being said, I have white interior doors and of course white windows. Would it look strange to slowly replace trim (window first, followed by floor and doors) with white? This would in effect mean we'd have a mixture in the house. It wouldn't matter to me, but there is a chance with my job that we'd have to sell in the middle. Thoughts?
Of course there is the debate of paint vs. replace with white. If I'm going to have to sand, prime, and paint the oak, I'd almost rather buy new pre-primed white, paint it, and put it on. Almost seems easier, plus it'd be totally new wood (the oak is about 8 years old).
Whichever way I go, I just know I can't do it all at once...wondering what a hybrid would look like. I could even complete some rooms before others, which would mean some rooms would be trimmed in white and some in oak.
