Could use some input on color/style

Posted by doceolatin (My Page) on

I'm redoing my 30 yr old kitchen and I'm pretty excited about it! I've already picked my cabinets: light cherry shaker style. The counter is a dark granite- black with spots of light brown that match the cabinet stain (unless I change and go with a very light red stain. The cabinet maker is staining some examples for me this week).

My main question at this point is this: I've decided to go with a flooring called Karndean but I haven't decided on the actual look. This is where I need to have some professional input.

Would you mind giving me your opinions? Since the cabinets are not dark and the counter is dark, how dark should I go with the floor?

My favorite floor was an aged, distressed looking floor but I don't have an aged looking home so I thought that wouldn't be a good thing. I was looking at Tazmanian wattle (a light wood with some streaking) or Hazelnut Barnwood which is a little darker with some more brown.

I know it's hard to imagine, but any ideas?

Thanks for your input!

You might want to post this on the more serious Discussions side of this forum. This side is for off-topic things like inlaws, child-rearing, general gripes or brags or life. The other side is for real kitchen-design related topics!

Best of luck!
