Mixing red oak and white oak in kitchen.

6 months ago

My floors are natural red oak. I dont love them because the grain pattern feels dated and they can trend toward pink/yellow but im stuck with them for now. my plan is to do a quarter sawn white oak island with white perimiter cabinets. I love this look in the pic below. Will it be weird to have these 2 oaks next to each other? The other idea is to do charcoal or another dark color on the island but i just love the look of this wood island. thoughts? too close to the same shade or totally doesnt matter?

my floors for reference:

Im still waiting on my sample of natural white oak but these are a few of the stained oaks.
