    I dont think it would look bad.  If it was me though, I would plan on changing the other floor later on to match, annnd because I love it.

    I think it’s fine. Also if the existing wood has been down for any length of time it has probably changed color slightly from what is in the pack, so it might actually look weirder to try to match and have them be slightly off… I also super heart the dark brown wood.

    Also congrats! We’ve been in our house just over a year and it’s still such a cool feeling to come home and know it’s yours forever. Plus painting… no more builder’s white walls for us! 🙂

    Mmmmmm hand-scraping. So pretty! Up until wedding planning I stalked shelter blogs. What would you do on the stairs? One of the woods or keep the carpet?

    I vote change upstairs wood, carpet stairs. It’s the look you want, and no one will fall down and sue you. 🙂 kidding.

    @Amsy28:  No one thinks about these things as hard as the person who is picking them. I sincerely doubt people will notice because they won’t be looking for it. (this is also what I tell myself on the days I cannot find matching socks… I am an adult, I swear I am)

    I would not buy a house with two different woods on different levels. It would mean redoing the whole house to me – I want it to match. I say either go with the brazillian cherry throughout or redo the whole house. It’s going to look really weird if the woods don’t go together!

    I think for resale it’s best to keep them the same. I like the dark look though too!

    Personally I would keep it the same. Sure, there may be a slight color difference due to aging, but the new floor will eventually fade to match the old. We recently did the hardwood in the dining/living room, which butts right up to the family rooms and a bathroom. The color is slightly different, as our floors are maple (which yellows as it ages), but it’s not enough to really make a big deal.

    I’ll be honest, unless I’m getting a great deal on a house, I would not want a place with different wood floors. What if someone wants to put wood stairs in? What color would you do then? I LOVE my wood stairs. We bought solid pieces and did white for the backerboards, as I felt like it was too much maple.

    It’s one thing if it’s real hardwood, same size, same wood type, but different stain. At least then you could have the entire house refinished and it would match.
