Hi--I just posted this in general decorating, but realized this might be the better area to post this. I am picking out prefinished wood flooring for our small kitchen. The cabinets are light (birch), and we wanted to keep the floor light as well. I fell in love with a natural maple floor. It will be very close in color to the cabinets. I've heard this makes the room appear bigger. Looking for opinions about the cabinet color so similar in color to the floor.
Just my own taste but it would be so monochrome that I think it would be too much in a small kitchen.
I would rather go with a softening effect on the floor. Maybe a soft subdued color that you could use in a deeper color as an accent with towels, etc. (even appliances come in so many colors today).
But I think if you have wood grain all over cabinets AND floor it would just over-power a person and get "old" fast.
