Need help choosing wood countertop to coordinate with wood floors
I want to add an additional countertop on a cabinet that's lower than the rest of my countertop. I was originally thinking butcher block. Then I started to think about walnut in either butcher block or planks. Then I was wondering about some sort of graywashed treatment, etc.
I'm thinking that I should pay more attention to my floors. They are 1.5 in red oak that's rift and quarter sawn with natural treatment that I'm waiting on to amber! It was added to match the rest of the flooring which is from 1939.
So, I'm concerned about the color that I choose. I've also got a dark shiplap treatment in the adjoining dining room that I could coordinate with. I'm also concerned about the width of the boards on the counter to avoid clashing with the floor if that's possible.
Has anyone done or seen a driftwood/grayed wood countertop? Thoughts? The rest of my counter is white macauba which could also coordinate or clash...
I'll attach a photo of my floor. It looks a bit more golden in person.
