polished floorboards to match with media storage

March 19, 2019

Wondering if anyone has any advice on how one should match (or not match) polished floorboards with wooden cabinetry?

I have dark cherrywood floorboards and want to build some media storage in the living room and would like a lighter wood colour like oak. Is this a "faux pax"? Does anyone have any recommendations?

    Better to go with high contrasting timber rather than trying to match. Consider contrasting in grain pattern and colour, or go for something completely different in your cabinetwork like a 2-pack finish to make the dark cherrywood floorboards the feature.
