I hope I can get some designer advice as I seem to lack it. We moved into a 2 storey house two years ago. One thing I intended to change asap was the green rug (1998 era) that is in the house to a laminate flooring. Since all of our window and baseboard trim and staricase is wood, what color should I go for flooring? Darker, lighter? I know some might say I will have to change my baseboards as Im changing my flooring but I want to try and reuse the baseboards and think it will cost just that much more for trim as this trim is throughout the entire house. This house is also an open concept.
I will attach the picture so that you may have an idea of what color I am working with.
