A modern kitchen pair with natural hardwood flooring compliments each other. You can either go with a lighter or dark shade of wood. Ultimately, a light shade of wood will further brighten your kitchen but it will be easier to see dirt. On the other hand, a dark shade will help to decrease the noticeability of dirt and add a defining effect to your kitchen. Choose a shade that matches other colors of your kitchen.

The benefit of black hardware is that is it typically easier to clean and maintain. One slight disadvantage is that you may be able to see dust build-up an easy sweep should clean it up. At times, black shades may differ as well as finish such as matte, glossy, or brushed. Stay when the same shade and style to have a seamless accent of black to compliment your kitchen.
