I want to put new wood flooring throughout the main level of my fairly basic 1916 house. This would include the livingroom, tv room, bathroom and kitchen/eating area. I quite a bit of pine (yes, from my Ikea days!) that is now quite old and fairly golden coloured - kitchen table/chairs/sideboard/tv cabinet (all traditional styles). I also have some dark walnut in other rooms and some painted stuff too.
My preference is for dark wood floors, but I'm worried that it won't work well with the yellow of the pine. My second choice would be clear maple. Any suggestions?
