I am currently approaching the end of escrow on a condo. I'm not a fan of the floor colors. I've been told they're maple hardwood and the cabinets in the kitchen match. The floor color continues through the whole house. Can you guys recommend a different color stain that would be a good match for this condo? I can restain the kitchen cabinets. The new stain would continue through the whole condo.

Wow. It's a stunner! I think it's the paint and the stainless that's throwing you off. Grey's want something warmer...go for a caramel color stain.

I like their color,,,it's the maple color, which is nice. It might be the wall color that makes it seem odd, like carawalker said above.

Such a cool space...before going through the hassle and expense of staining floors and cabinets, try a different paint color...specifically one you love.

It is difficult to stain maple. It often appears blotchy when stained. I would leave it alone. I actually think your whole condo is very attractive. I would change the color of the bedroom as carawalker and printeresa suggest. Love your kitchen.

I love this color. Darker places and colors are often depressing.
