Should my island be painted/stained based on these wood floors?

stacylhMarch 25, 2013

I'm so excited to be in the trenches of this entire house remodel and feeling like we're in the home stretch....

But, now I'm second guessing EVERYTHING!


1) Has this happen to you?

2) Based on our floor stain (red oak with 50/50 provincial and medium brown blend stain), would you still have your island stained the color shown (or darker) or would you do it in the same off white chosen for the perimeter cabinets? Counters will be a Kashmir White and planning to paint the walls a gray that coordinates with the counters.

The lighting makes the floors look a little more orange than they really are.....can't turn the lights off because floor guy forbade me to until the final coats are on and dry :)

I would go with whatever you like for the island. The only thing I would personally stay away from is trying to match the floor to the island stain. But a dark stain you you show in the bottom picture would be great!
