This home was overpowered by golden oak when I met the homeowners. Our goal was to give the main level an updated and fresh look and to minimize the presence of the oak. The kitchen and powder room were warmed up with some medium cherry tones and the existing oak floor was stained to coordinate with the new cabinetry. We used slate tile flooring in the back hallway and laundry room for durability and to disguise tracking and the clean lines with the introduction of the grays in the wall color and back splash tile really brought this space up to date and tied it in with the adjacent rooms.
