White floors AND cabinets??
September 8, 2013 in Design Dilemma
I have been researching quite a bit for our home reno. I LOVE this stuff. I think I know the answer, but am wondering if I should buck the system or if there are trends for a reason...it looks better that way. So, I have a ranch style brick home built in the early 80's on a lake. Very down home Florida. Originally, we were sure we wanted white marble or travertine flooring, but now white cabinets are kind of winning out. I also tend toward white granite with black/gray specks for countertops and possibly the backsplash. We want to make it current, but still keep the character of a lake home, which I don't think lends itself toward completely sleek and modern. Anyway, can I do ALL white? Too bland? Everything I am seeing is wood floors with white cabinets. Wood does provide a nice texture and touch of warmth against the stone. I really wanted those floors, but there must be a reason I can't find a good example of the white on white on white...attached are pictures of the prospective counter, cabinets and flooring, and exterior of the home.
