What color of kitchen cabinets go best with hickory floors?

FotoFanaticMarch 4, 2012

I'm trying to plan the kitchen in our new home. We plan to start building in beginning of May so I still have some time to decide. I'm not sure what color will go best with hickory floors. I really like medium maple cabinets with a glaze and but I'm afraid it might be too busy. Then I considered cream cabinets with medium maple island. Just worried that I might get tired of cream cabinets over time. It's an open floor plan and hickory flooring will be in Great Room, DR and Kitchen. Any ideas will be much appreciated!!

Hickery can be very busy so I think I would go for something that showed very little grain like a maple. maybe forget the glaze. A dark cherry perhaps would be a good contrast with little grain. Dark maple island with maple cabinets. That sounds a little busy too but I'm just throwing things out there.
