Kitchen Countertops and Flooring That Coordinate With Dark Oak Cabinets

I have dark oak cupboards and would like to choose a new floor (vinyl). I would like to do my countertop in a black patterned laminate. Would that be too dark and what color should the floor be? I have lots of natural light and the kitchen is about 18 X 14 feet.

If you're going to go dark with the countertop, I would go light with the floor (assuming you don't mind the extra work to keep them clean). Perhaps something with a cream pattern?

Definitely go light on the floor. The black counter top would work depending on how many walls your cabinets cover and are they mostly base or wall cabinets too? What colors are your appliances? I would make sure your walls are light in color also. Black counter tops I always think are classy, you could always go with a granite look but some lighter pigments in it also. Do you have an island? Is it also dark? If so you may want to lighten that up a bit also. Good luck.:)
