We want to replace carpet with hardwood. Was told we would have to replace what is in dining room too, since they couldn't exact match it. Questions is, do I stick with the same color/stain as we currently have or try something different. Those exposed kitchen cabinets throw me off. Question 2: how can I decorate to make this look better? We will probably get leather couch/sofa in near future. But everything looks so blah now. Not sure how to decorate open floor plan.
