We are in the process of redoing the kitchen. We are keeping the cabinets, that are stained in a mix of light oak and cherry, but going to stainless appliances and a blackish granite countertop. We plan on going to wood for the floors and refinishing the dining room and living room so the floors are all one colour. But, we are torn between going lighter than the cabinets or darker than the cabinets. I am a bit concerned about the maintenance of the darker floor and of getting tired of the colour over time. Any suggestions?
