We are doing major remodeling and will have an open floor plan with the kitchen, and other living space. I have contracted custom natural cherry cabinets with peacock green granite counters. I need wood floors that will hold up to two large dogs. Everyone has told me to go with antique red oak. Is this a god match with the cherry cabinets? I really need help with this. I originally wanted blue saphire granite but it seemed too flashy for the red oak floors and was told by the cabinet maker he did not think that it would go. Your thoughts on this would be appreciated!
