Two Stain or Not Two Stain

sandyg's picture

I am having a difficult time trying to figure out if i can add hardwood floors to my livingroom. Here is my problem, currently my staircase which is right across from my livingroom ( 4 ft of tile separating them) has a red oak natural finish hand rail , stringers and post, the pickets are rod iron, the treads are carpeted. I would like to put in hardwood in my living room but i want a dark espresso stain. Is it not going to look wrong having two colour woods sooo close together?
