Hardwood flooring color Sign In/Join 
Hello everyone. I am looking to purchase some new hardwood floors and would like a little advice. I want to know what everyone thinks about the following floor color to go with my countertops.
The color is like a light grey. Does this color go with the attached photo I have included? The cabinets are solid white. If not what else would you recommend from the Lauzon site in the engineered hardwood section. Any feedback would be great.

JMHO but I don't believe colors read the same from pc screen to pc screen. Thus, I wouldn't want to risk giving you the wrong shade.

My suggestion: I would obtain 3 samples of the wood tones, say 1 shade up and 1 down from the one you selected. Then, one at a time, I would set them on top of your counter, backsplash, cabinet (and any other applicable) choices, i.e. on top of the pile.

If the colors harmonize, they'll work together. OTOH, if they clash, your eye should tell you.

Good Luck!

I really like that dark color it's laying on in pic. Gives room a goo solid looking anchor.
