Cherry cabinets, maple floor -- yellowing?
We're actually well past the point when the contractor would like us to have our kitchen flooring chosen, but we remain indecisive. Our perimeter cabinets are a medium cherry, our island is called maple toffee. We want a wood floor that blends with both cabinet colors but is lighter than either of them. It also should call a lot of attention to itself, as our countertop granite is already going to draw the eye and we don't want other features to compete.
Our first floor choice was a natural maple, but I am afraid that it will yellow -- the kitchen has a large skylight so the floor will get a lot of sunlight -- and no longer look good with the cabinets. We have considered a bleached (and re-stained) oak, but the maple as it comes from the store really has a nice warm look to it, while the bleached oak looks rather blah.
Do we have reason to be concerned? Below I'm attaching pictures of the kitchen so far and the granite we're going to use for the counters.
