We went to Portland today and picked out the carpet and wood floor. It was really hard to get a good picture inside the store because of the glare from the lighting. These pics make the floor look a little more yellow than it really is, but trust me the carpet looks beautiful with it. Do you see the sample in the lower left corner? Click on the picture to see a closeup of the wood floor.I didn't want the floor and cabinets to be the same color, instead I wanted a nice contrast and this combination is perfect. The cabinets pull out the warm, darker color in the wood grain. The floor is not solid hard wood........it is an engineered wood floor.......in other words, it is real wood on top of plywood. I love it!
