Hardwood Flooring Color Ideas

I just bought a house, the kitchen has light oak cabinets and a cream colored laminate counter top. The walls are beige colored too. What color of hardwood floor should I get?

Seeing everything in your kitchen is light colors...why don't you do your floor in multicolored hardwood. That way you willbring some depth to you room. I have seen them and they are beautiful!

Match the floor to the cabinets as close as possible and choose some fun colors to paint the walls :-) Walls are easier and less expensive to repaint when you get tired of the colors than replacing a hardwood floor ;-)

Avoid anything dark, it shows every piece of dirt, and footprints.

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.
