Hi Courtney,
I would be concerned about finding a floor tile before a backsplash tile. If you have lighter cherry cabinetry, then I would go for a darker floor, and vice versa. This will break things up a little bit. However, seeing pictures of your selections would be ideal in order for us to give you the most beneficial advice.

We generally advise our clients to hold off on the final backsplash choice until everything else in their kitchen is complete. You can still use this time to gather ideas, but do not order the tile until your countertops are in place. This will allow you to bring samples home to look at in your kitchen with your own lighting.
