Does oak go well with more oak?

Q.  Can you go with a mission style red oak cabinet and use a red oak flooring in a kitchen and dining room area?

A.  You may want to consider painting your cabinets to brighten up your space. To keep the “old feeling” you could try a whitewash or distressed look on the cabinets. Other options may include taking off a few of the cabinet doors and painting the inside shelving or installing some rustic, but whimsy hardware on the cabinets. Be creative and have fun! Please contact Tuckey Restoration to schedule a consultation or for additional information. Thank you.
