Choosing a Color for Hardwood Flooring

I am looking to install hardwood flooring in place of carpet in my family room, living room, hallways, and kitchen. I have medium to dark oak furniture and cabinets in the kitchen. I have cream countertops. I have light green walls. What color flooring should I use?

I would suggest a light golden oak. Dark finishes show dust and dirt. I think this might look best with your furniture and wall colors.

I just purchased condo on the 18th floor with a full southern view. I am thinking maybe I will get hardwood eventually. What colour or shade should I use? Thank you.

With a southern view it means there will always be sun. I would go with a light color like oak to avoid problems with uneven fading if you plan to use throw rugs or furniture.
