Oak and Stainless?
I see many kitchens with oak cabinets and stainless steel appliences. Although seperately, I think both are classics,
but somehow when put together, the warmness of the oak and the coolness of the stainless seems a little off to me.
I can't see tearing out a perfectly good oak kitchen to match your new stainless appliances, but I could see bisque or almond (if appliences still come in those colors) having more of a warmer tone. Stainless has such a clean look and looks great in white kitchens.
