What do you think of this combo (cabinet, granite, floor)?
I think we might have found a floor tile that DH and I can agree upon. I like a more tumbled look and DH likes a rectified, modern look. I have been shopping and bringing home samples (which he has not liked at all). Finally, I found a Serenissima Coronado cream tile which he says he really likes. It was not my first choice, but I liked it enough to bring it home as an option. So, of course, now I am having second thoughts. What do you think of the color scheme overall? We would probably want to do a stone (travertine, marble) backsplash eventually, but that decision is so far down the road...
Cabinets are Kraftmaid cherry in Sunset stain. Granite is Tropical Brown. I would love to hear opinions about the granite/cabinet combination as well. We are looking for a low(er) cost granite without a lot of movement. We debated darker ones (uba tuba, brown pearl, tan brown), but lately we both decided we liked the TB, which neither of us liked in the beginning. (I know there was a whole separate thread recently about TB having a greenish cast to it...I think next to my cabinets, which are a brown/orange, it does). I like the silver mica flecks...It should work well with stainless/black appliances, but does it work with the cabinets?
The granite and floor are probably going to cost almost as much as the cabinets, so this is a big (expensive) decision for us.
Please feel free to voice your opinion if you don't like it...I can handle the constructive criticism. :-) Other suggestions would be helpful as well.
Oh, I've never posted pictures so let me know if these come across too big.
