We recently purchased a 1910 craftsman style bungalow. All of the trim is white-which would be fine, but the previous owners never removed the old paint or sanded it down, they just painted another layer of white over the chipping paint that was already on the trim and around the windows. Needless to say-it is not pretty. I had a friend tell me that "back then" when the house was built, it would have been a stained wood, not white trim. So we want to stain all the trim-or most of it. My question is this: do we stain the wood to match the wood floors? Because I hate the color of stain on these floors and I plan on refinishing them in the near future anyways. Is there a general "rule" about staining wood with wood floors?
