Could this look go with a lighter colour countertop on the island such as oak?
September 13, 2012 in Photo Questions
I am thnking of using the same combo of splashback and tiled with white perimeter cabinets with a greyish toned quartz countertop but I would like to use a lighter wood on the island. Do you think that the darl laquered finish of this wood is integral to bringing this look together? ie does it create contrast and tie in the granite countertops with the island?

You can certainly go with a lighter island and oak is a beautiful wood! In this project, the darker finish was selected to compliment the existing furniture owned by the client and additional darker accents were chosen for the decorative hardware, hinge and light fixtures finishes. Just keep in mind these help complete a project! Good luck!
