Decorating & Furniture/Choosing a wood floor stain color

Question
I have dark cherry kitchen cabinets. We're installing hardwood floors in the entire downstairs, including the kitchen. Northwest exposure on kitchen. Good light. What color - an exact name, a real minwax or other brand color, should I stain the floors? The island is white beadboard with a rust glaze. I'll have white furniture in other parts of the house.
Thanks,
Alison

Answer
Hello Alison,
Sorry, but I am not located where the exact name of a brand and color is available. I do believe its best to take a sample of your cherry cabinets (a drawer front) with you as you select the floor finish.  Make sure you look at both in the best light possible...daylight, so go  outside!

Good Luck!
