I would like to know what the flooring is. I have Ikea white oak cabinets, and need to pick a floor.

If I gave you the exact color, it wouldn't look like it does in the photograph on your screen. My advice is to work with a fan deck held up to your computer screen until you find the shade of blue that works with what you see. We generally work with Benjamin Moore Classic colors, as well as their Historical colors for their richness and complexity. Happy color hunting!

What kind of laminate counter is this? - It looks great. Why spend so much money if it looks like this?

Nothing fancy! Just a Formica or Nevamar product with a wood edge. The key is to avoid the flat colors, and chose a textured swatch that has some life to it. Also, you will likely be forced to use a deck mounted sink: chose one that has a mounting detail you like. Cast Iron or Fireclay sinks can be a good choice with laminate as they have a bit more over-counter presence than Stainless Steel. This particular SS sink had an attractive rolled edge with enough dimension that it looked nice on top of the counter.

I'm a native New Englander; have never (in more than half a century) seen a blue kitchen ceiling. Porch ceilings, maybe once in a while.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The client didn’t want the kitchen to be “too precious,” Albertsson says. To give it a casual feeling, she mixed oak cabinets with metal-front units from Ikea, and used plastic laminate counters around the perimeter. “We wanted it to look a little thrown together,” she says. A shelf across the windows maximizes storage and adds a playful note, as does the swiveling light illuminating the peninsula. The vintage range sat in the owner’s garage for years before she found a place for it here.And what’s that overhead? “Blue ceilings are a tradition in New England,” Albertsson explains, “so I always like to bring in a blue ceiling somewhere.”Light fixture: Design Within Reach
Laura Gaskill added this to What Goes With Wood Cabinets?
Blue ceiling. If there is hardly any available wall space in your kitchen but you want to add some color, consider painting the ceiling instead of the walls. This kitchen with white oak cabinets has far more personality, thanks to its blue ceiling, than it would have had with a plain-Jane white ceiling. Tell us: Do you have wood cabinets in your kitchen? How do you decorate around them? Share your photos and tips in the Comments!

note white open shelf above window - white bounces the light around. also note that the wall above is wood, not white. overall very pleasing kitchen - lots of light, and probably extremely functional and good to work in.
