A pic of the cabinets would help! But, generally as long as u go darker or lighter than the cabinets u should be good! Darker would be harder to keep clean but if u aren't overly concerned with that then go lighter...good luck! :)

If the cherry is natural (not stained) you could use the same for the floor and create a wonderful warm, natural wood feeling. I did this is a library with bookshelves and floor, all natural cherry. I disagree with the rule of contrasting woods. With medium color woods, more can be more.

A friend used walnut floors with his cherry cabinets.

I like maple or vertical grain Douglas fir with cherry.

Yep, I also used natural walnut floors with natural cherry cabinets. I love the two woods together - the big open grain of each is very complimentary to the other.
