Kitchen flooring ideas?

shanecorinnaJuly 8, 2013
My kitchen is being re-done with white cabinets, white subway tile backsplash, and dark grayish/almost black countertops. Thoughts on flooring? To keep in mind, it is a small kitchen that opens to a dining room with wood floor that is the original floor that I am keeping. Would it be weird to have a darker wood in kitchen? should I go with slate? Any suggestions would be much appreciated as I am design challenged to say the least.

I would try to match the wood in the dining room.

Be careful with dark wood floors. You can use the dark wood if you have a lot of natural light coming in to give the kitchen contrast. If you do not have a lot of natural light coming in go with a lighter wood but not very light. Sounds like a beautiful kitchen.
