Matching Railings to Floor
We are having hardwood floors installed, replacing carpets. The floor coloring will not match the existing stair railing and our floor guy does not have a stair specialist and does not want the responsibility. He feels that sanding the current poly off the rails may not return acceptable results as the stain won't take properly if everything is not stripped.
I was wondering wht my options were, other than replacing the railing, including: sanding and restaining, painting the handrails with a mohogany toned paint, adding new darker tone polyurethane, other thoughts.
I was looking for some thoughts on what options I may have available.
