How to match unfinished stairs to finished wood floors?

rita_kuklaNovember 6, 2012
We are thinking of installing prefinished hardwood floors in our new home. it's a stain of brown/grey(MERCER Red Oak - Eclipse in the matte wire brushed finish) Do the red oak stairs have to match and how I could have them stained/treated to match?

You will never be able to get a match. I suggest staining them in the same family but quite a bit darker. They should look intentional. :)

You cannot match it, don't even try. Go with recommendation above.
