Cherry cabinets can bring warmth and luxury to any room in your home, but if you want to make an even bolder design statement with your cherry cabinets, look to wood flooring to compliment your new cabinetry. If you want to create a more cohesive look you can install solid or engineered wood flooring that stands out in its own right. In the end, it comes down to your lifestyle, the look you want to accomplish in the room, and your budget. To help get you started, here is a look at some wood flooring materials that pair well with cherry cabinets.
Light Wood Floors
When pairing wood flooring to cherry cabinets, try to stick with lightly-colored wood floors. Dark wood floors such as walnut and maple might overpower the space and distract from your beautiful cabinets. Cherry cabinets look great paired with wood floors that contain hints of gold, yellow, blondes, and reds.
Speaking of lightly-colored flooring, bamboo floors in a light blonde stain will perfectly contrast your cherry cabinets. Bamboo floors also provide textural nuances to your kitchen’s design thanks to its sandy, earthy appearance.
Cherry Hardwood Floors
Matching your floors and cabinets can create a uniform look in your kitchen. Cherry hardwood flooring is also remarkably durable. When laying down cherry hardwood flooring, make sure the grain follows the length of the kitchen rather than the width to expand and lengthen the space. For a bit of contrast, try a light oak or maple stain on cherry hardwood floors.
