I would love to answer your question, but I need a little more information--sort of like, what should I wear to a party? It depends on what kind of party. So, what color are your floors, cabinets and walls? Also, do you have a color scheme in mind for your entire house (or main living areas)? Can you post photos of any of the finishes that are already in place?

This is a good article - I like the fact that you specify what is shown in the photos. Too many Houzz articles simply put the photos up with no explanation.
