Floor with Oak Cabinets
Please help as I am going crazy. This is the first step of all my redecorating and I don't want to make a mistake. I posted a couple weeks ago and several people offered suggestions (thanks to all that did). I am putting hardwood floors down and wanted to know what hardwood floor would go with my oak cabinets. Hubby wants to keep the oak cabinets and I am OK with that as I think once I change the appliances, install new countertops and get new flooring they will be fine. All furniture, lamps, etc are being replaced (they were only used for staging). Oak dining table will stay. Almost everyone seemed to agree to go with white oak satin. I am so worried it will be way to much oak. I was at the store and thought about trying to match the darker color in the grain of the cabinets. It appears a little grey like. If I decided not to go with the white oak with this maple look ridiculous? Or should I just go with the white oak? Feel free to offer any other suggestion. I would really appreciate your help. FYI the new floor will run all along where the current white tile is. I may decide to put ceramic tile in ONLY the kitchen but not sure yet. That was a suggestion that might help break up the new floors from the cabinets.
