Paint or stain Bi-folds??

I am repacing VERY old closet doors with the same kind. I can't decide if I need to stain or paint them. I'm trying to match a new wood floor. Also thinking about painting the old moulding a different color. Any ideas? THANKS!!!

You will probably not get close to an exact match between the doors and the floor. If the grain and veneer of the new doors is nice it might be worth staining them if you like the look.

You can always paint over the stain if you decide you don't like it, but not the other way around....
