Last week we began looking around for new lower kitchen cabinets, counter-tops and back splash, we can’t continue to live with the mold much longer. (If you missed it, you can read about it here) I was actually somewhat excited for the first time to shop and quickly my bubble was burst, poof just like that. We were told our “dream kitchen” was not possible because of our existing floors.
In all my inspiration pictures you see one thing in common. White and/or grey cabinets combined with a white counter-top with grey veins. Pretty right? Well, look at all the floors, they are either dark wood or a light tile.
“The design lady” said since our travertine floors have a lot of browns we couldn’t pull it off.
So I began to look
Look at that; brown/orange floors do exist in grey/white kitchens, I’m not crazy, well, I’m sure my husband would beg to differ.
Do I like the look of the dark floors better? Of course I do! But being the insurance isn’t giving us a dime, changing out the floors isn’t a option.
Then I started to think a little more about dropping the white top and going with more of a creamy top to coordinate with the floors?
I don’t know, I am so confused, I need your help.
Should we just go for it or do you think white counters would look out of place with our floors? Or go for option B and bring in more creams?
