    It really is a matter of preference. My flooring guy and painter both told me that the shoe moulding should be the same stain as the floor, however I have seen it painted the same color as the trim and actually think that looks better. I have lived with my shoe moulding stained for several years and am in the process of re painting all of my trim at which time I will include the shoe moulding.

    What color is your baseboards? Paint or stain the shoe moulding the same color.

    It really is a matter of preference . The more traditionalistwill say stain the same color as the floors . Others say paint the same color as the trim in the room . Go with what you like best since its your home and you're the one who will be looking at it every day .

    Here is a picture of dark flooring with an off-white baseboard. We did this in a rental townhouse. As you can see the shoe molding is the same color as the floor.

    I too, prefer the shoe molding to be the same color as the base board. Depends on the overall look of the room.
