Q: New home and I need to replace the really old carpeting in the long living room extending to the master bedroom. However, I would like to keep the existing hardwood which is a nice plank with that artistic curve at the edge. Any suggestions for a different hardwood to complement the existing wood?

Should I match it exactly, or perhaps change to something darker to contrast? Or should I chuck the idea and keep a carpet? Or should I get rid of the existing wood and do one hardwood throughout?
