I’m putting in Brazilian Cherry floors in a large portion of my home that are not stained, just clear-coat protected. I like the durability (very hard wood) and color of the species and the cost for floorboards was in-line with many others. I would like to install a significant amount of wood trim in the rooms (don’t like the painted stuff), but am trying to understand options for which species to use that is more reasonable in cost and complements the floors.
Oak seems too grainy to complement the floors and domestic cherry seems too irregular in color to deal with considering the amount of feet I’ll need to mill….
so confused on this one..not sure what to use. I’ll probably end up milling my own trim, so that’s a factor as well. I have a pretty good supplier of hardwoods nearby carrying almost everything domestic. I’m willing to stain the trim too.
Any thoughts from the collective wisdom of everyone?
