Floor Color - Match or Contrast Cabinets?
Hi Everone! This is my first post. I wish I had discovered this forum a while ago as our kitchen demo begins next week.
Anyway, my question is about flooring. We have selected the Martha Stewart for Home Depot "Ox Hill" (shaker-style) cabinets in color Ocean Floor (a very olive-green grey). Countertops will be Corian Sea Salt (creamy white with beigey veining and flecks). We're getting tile floors (wood floors will not work for us) and I have a question about color.
I have samples of two Emser Tile "Strands" colors. One, "Olive," is a perfect match to the color of the cabinets. The other, "Oyster," is a perfect match to the color of the countertops. I am having desing paralysis on which to choose. I am sort of loving the idea of matching the tile to the cabinets, but am wondering if anyone has seen a kitchen where the cabinets and floors are the same color (and not wood). Do you think it would look strange?
I'm flailing about on this choice - any feedback would be appreciated. Thanks!
