I live in home with knotty pine wainscoting halfway up the walls throughout most of the first floor. We're putting new flooring in, and I'm not sure how to make this look its best. We're putting porcelain tile in the front and back entry ways, so that's no problem. But I was thinking of putting in a vinyl wood-look plank (like Karndean or Mannington) in the living room, dining room, and kitchen (I'm looking for something waterproof).
I've been bringing home many samples and am just unsure of what to do. The pine wainscoting is a medium-value very warm honey color, and I certainly can't find a perfect match...some are sort of close, but clearly different. Would it be better to try for the best match even though it'll be obvious we missed? Or should we go with another color wood all together?
I'm not too sure of my decorating skills. Thank you for any input!
