Floors & Cabinet Colors - I am redoing my kitchen. I would love to have dark hardwood floors and maple cabinets. I'm not so sure if that combination will work. Also, what suggestions do you have.

Amy I wonder if you still help strangers on houzz :)
Attached is the color cabinets we are going with (dark coffee maple, shaker style )
Trying to decide on a granite countertop color (or quartz if it works better)
My hubby thinks black pearl would look sharp. I want to believe since he is usually better at this than me :)
But feels like a white would look better (like river white or imperial white etc) ... I don't want to be right tho lol just want what looks the best
Do you have any suggestions for a wall colour and hardwood (Engineered).. I prefer darker floors hand scraped

If you are still our there please HELP SOS :)

Hello, I don't get on much but I would be glad to help you. I would say that if you are going with a medium or dark wood floor I would try and lighten it up with a top with a lighter base and maybe some darker veins. Good ole Santa Cecilia Classico never disappoints nor does New Venetian Gold. Black Pearl is a nice looking stone but you will have a richer, dark look and that may not be what you are trying to achieve? As in cars anything darker looks dominant and rich. Light looks softer and when blended with dark I feel it gives the wow factor. This goes the same with the quartz materials. If you get a more solid color stone or quartz you have an easier time with your decorative splashes. If you go with a busier one you can pick a more solid splash. This is not 100% of the time but it's a good tip most of the time. I can get real brave and mix a lot and you need to identify what works best for you and the hubby. Hope that helps. Also if this is a remodel send me a photo to and I will let you know what your space is calling for. New construction is a clean slate but remodeling is a different ball of wax.

I used to have these barstools. Hydraulic levers to adjust height. Loved them! Too bad they just didn't fit in with the decor of my new house.

What kind of hardwood floor is this? Color?

actually looks like red oak... images of wood are tricky. finding a hardwood is the most important part of the process. Finding a color that works with you project can be easy with a willing finisher

Need help - Wondering if there is a space for counter between the fridge & stove, or if they are right next to each other. We have the same layout and are limited with space. Just removed the wall where the fridge was, and this will now be a bar counter just like in this photo. Please post more pictures of this kitchen if you have them. Thank you so much! Great space planning!
