A Matter Of Taste
Like most things related to a decorating project in your own home, the flooring in your kitchen is a personal thing and one dictated by your own taste. So it could be that you want to have a colour scheme where the units and cupboards match the flooring or one where they compliment rather than match.
Coordinating and Contrasting
If you are looking for everything to match you should plan on choosing materials with the same kind of finish, gloss or matt and find the colours that go well together the best too. A good way to do this is to either use a material that can be used on floors and worktop, like a composite or rich brown stone worktop with a walnut floor.
Another great way you can decorate a kitchen is by contrasting colours and finished. Either contrast the colours in the same finishes or different finishes in the same colour.
Regardless of the colours and finishes you choose, you need to consider the fact that kitchens not only take a long time to install but cost a lot of money and should be seen as a long term investment. Therefore you need to make sure you choose finishes and a colour scheme from somewhere like GoHaus that you will not get tired of easily.
