Different Floor Stains throughout House
We are remodeling and adding space to our basic ranch home. The part being remodeled includes an open floor plan living/dining room kitchen and family room. The bedroom wing is separated by a glass pocket door from the main living space. The new space has an updated more contemporary feel but still carries the straight lines of the ranch. We kept the same style oak floors throughout the house but I don't like the old stain because it is quite yellow and maybe too dark for the new fresh space. There floors are all continuous meaning there are no reducers. The only separation from new to old is the pocket door. How odd would it be to have a different floor stain? For that matter, the base and casings are different from old to new as well but for some reason that doesn't bother me because the space feels different with a different purpose. I suppose that is easy enough to change at some point but doesn't feel critical. The floors - well, I'm not sure if they should all match. Thoughts?
