Transition Isues w/2 different wood flooring types

14 years ago

We need to make a final decision on our hardwood floors for the upper and main level this week and we are still having issues. We want brazilian cherry on the main level but we have small bedrooms so I wanted something lighter up there...possibly natural maple. Do people frown upon mixing hardwood floor types? If we do this we aren't sure how to transition from one type to the next. I was thinking about doing the stairs with both types of wood (I have a picture but I don't know how to post it. Any ideas? The stairs are located in the hallway off the kitchen and are visible once you walk into the house.

I'm tired of looking at wood on-line. Should we go for 2 different types of wood or try to find something to suite both levels of the house (I've been looking for awhile but can't find anything I like).

All ideas are welcome...but we aren't going back to carpet.
