Dark Wood Flooring

"The floor is an oak with a dark walnut stain and a polyurethane finish. It's laid diagonally in 3-and-1/4-inch wide planks to serve as a contrast to the parquet oak floor in the adjoining hallway and the horizontal oak floor in the adjacent dining room. The diagonal also draws you into the space and separates the space. The floor is very practical because it has a polyurethane finish that won't stain and real wood is relatively comfortable.

 

"The wood further fits the overall tone of this fairly traditional kitchen with its inset cabinets, farmhouse sinks and honed granite countertops. The kitchen was originally like the Brady Bunch kitchen, but the owners wanted to bring the character of that space back into keeping with the contemporary country feel of the rest of the home."
