We're in the process of renovating a 22 year old cape. Looking to choose a good color for the wood floor that will be bought prefinished. The wood floor will be going in the living room into the eat in kitchen area and down a hallway. The kitchen cabinets are cherry. We do not care for oak but need something that is hard as we have a dog who loves to chase balls in the house and the floors will take a beating from her nails. The kitchen floor and the main entryway are the same vinyl sheet good pattern as shown in the attached photo. Any ideas on a complimentary color would be appreciated.
