Decorating Question From My Mailbox.

Here is a question I recently received:

Is the hardwood floor supposed to match your kitchen cabinets ?

My answer:

I usually don’t care for hardwood in the kitchen. Kitchen floors get really dirty. Being able to use a really wet soapy mop and strong cleaners are often necessary. Hardwood floors usually can’t take that. The wood warps and discolors. I prefer ceramic tile. If you do really want hardwood floors in your kitchen I would go with contrasting, not matching.

Here are some photos:

Don’t you think contrasting looks better? I think it is more interesting to look at.



If you have a question, sent it in! I would love to hear from you.
