Can you pull off 2 colours/shades of hardwood floor in open concept?
We just bought a house and the main entry is oak hardwood floors and then it opens up to the living room and dinning room. The living room and dinning room have dusty rose (pink) carpet right now (ewww). We can't match the oak exactly, so want to put a much darker wood down. Is this a good idea? Will the two shades in one open space look bad? Any suggestions? The kitchen is also off the dinning room, less open but has white tile flooring. Kitchen cabinets are walnut and the trim around the house is all lighter like the oak flooring.
