Suggestions for wood countertop with quartersawn oak cabs

11 years ago

We are getting quartersawn oak cabinets in our kitchen. Our kitchen is u-shaped with a raised bar

Kitchen cab layout

I am planning on doing honed virginia mist granite on the perimeter, but I would like to do a wood surface for the raised counter. I think it will be more comfortable for people sitting up there.

My question is this. What color of wood/stain do you think would go best in terms of both contrast and complimentary features with the color of the cabinets (in link). Pictures would be great if you have any. Thanks for the help!

Here is a link that might be useful:
