White antique cabinets with oak floor?

We may be buying a home that has medium brown oak floors, with some auburn/reddish tones in it. The kitchen cabinets are this same color, and I think it's a little too much brown wood with the combo of the floor.. So I'm considering doing all white antique cabinets in the kitchen.

Do you think this white cabinetry would look good with a brownish-red oak floor ?

    Don't change the color, accent the room.

    Couple of throw rugs by sink, refrigerator and/or stove. Colorful handles/knobs on cabinets.

    Decorative items in room. Counter canisters, vase, centerpiece & 'doily', etc...

    After you put your things on counter, table, floor, etc... the room isn't so bare and you will be surprised that it isn't too much after all.

    White goes with anything. If you buy the house, live with it the way it is for a couple of weeks, then put some thngs in the colors you are considering using in the space you want to change. Look at it for a couple of days at different times of the day. It will help you decide if a color is good or not.
