Kitchen decor dilemma - choosing the right surfaces
August 25, 2013 in Design Dilemma
About to buy a new build house so I have the enviable task of being able to choose the flooring throughout and parts of the kitchen. Problem is we think we may stuck with a poor design call by the developer - honeyed oak-coloured countertops paired with smooth, high gloss white cabinets. Feels like a contradiction between very modern and quite rustic. Trying to choose the right floor to compliment it all is killing me. I had hoped to put a rich walnut throughout the whole downstairs area but I'm worried it won't work. The world's my oyster but the choice is too wide. Would really appreciate a professional opinion. Open to anything at this point! Ta.
