Moulding and Trim in the basement

Is it wise to have the trim in your basement match color and style of the rest of the house?

Moulding and Trim in the basement

It's your house, you can do whatever you want. Just kidding. I just finished a basement remodel in a upscale home. The homeowner wanted painted woodwork because the rest of the house had it. The size of the woodwork was scaled down slightly. The upstairs had 9 and 10' ceiling heights. The basement was 8'.
In my own home, I have stained woodwork on the first floor (ranch). I stained the wood trim in the basement when I finished it but used all oak downstairs with a golden oak stain. First floor is poplar stained to look like dark cherry. Whatever suits your fancy.

Yes! So that the overall look and feeling of your house has uniformity.
