Decorator faux pas

Our kitchen needs a major face lift and we need some advice. We totally redid the bathroom with sandlewood maple cabinets, 'autumn' leaves matte countertop and neutral congoleum (looks like ceramic tile) flooring. We'd like to carry the same cabinets, countertop and flooring into the kitchen. Both bathroom and kitchen entrances are at the same end of the hall. You can see into the bathroom from the kitchen. Is this OK? Too much? Would really appreciate an opinion.

There are two points of view:

-You can make the bathroom and the kitchen (the way you suggested)
-You can make the bathroom and the kitchen in complimentary ways.

What does it means? Sometimes you "marry" two decoration styles. They are not copied one from each other, but they balance one with the other. For example if in the bathroom you have a white floor, with black details; in the kitchen you will have a black floor with white details.

Also, you need to consider that some materials are OK for the bathroom and not for the kitchen. I went to the Manufacturer’s site and it is stated: “Heat-producing appliances such as a refrigerator or range, or hot air registers emitting a direct flow of heat in excess of 120° F, even intermittently, can scorch, burn, discolor or fade your floor”, so perhaps the floor is not the best choice for the kitchen
