Need a suggestion on kitchen floor and countertop

August 30, 2013 in Design Dilemma
Really a question; we have put in a travertine floor that we love. There is a lot of movement in the stone. Weeks ago we picked out our granite tops. We are concerned that there may be too much movement over all between the floor and countertop. Cabinets will be painted shaker style in gray bases and white tinted ever so slight yellow tops. So now we wonder if it pill all be too busy in a small townhouse kitchen. Comments please.

I don't like the granite choice with the floors. Something much more like the Heights Kitchen remodel counter would look good with your nice floors.

I just think the colors are not good at all together and the counter is too busy. Very nice floor choice.

My computer monitor cannot be trusted in the least, however, I am seeing a very pink hue in your travertine?

Karen;
The bare bulb lighting does give a pink hue that is not true. I will try tomorrow in daylight to get a better representation.
It is predominantly silver in color.

Looks a lot like the other pictures - very nice. The strong background beige needs to be reflected (or at least worked with) in the countertop. That countertop with the very white background is just way off for this floor. I'm guessing you had that feeling and that's why you began the discussion. Trust yourself and please find a calmer choice in a coordinating color scheme.

Ann;

Thank you for comments. We are paying the extra 100 dollars to bring the 2 slabs back from fabricators. Better to pay 100 to be sure than 5,000 to be wrong

Oh, I think that looks very good. Let's take a side by side look.

I think your new selection is soooo much better. That's a $100 well spent! It's going to look great!
