If my vanity is going to be a maple color, what color wood floors would look good with it?should it contrast?

We found linoleum that looks just like wood planks!! I love the warm charactor or wood looking floors, even in a small bathroom. But I don't know if I should go lighter, darker or same hue as the vanity? The vanity I'm

looking at looks

like a maple, in between cherry and oak looking. Thanks for any advice, tips or sites with inspirations!!

    I would go dark on the floors to highlight the vanity

    First you would talk to the people that you bought the tile from. Cherry wood is excellent as it's deep and rich in color. However, in a bathroom , it could be troublesome. If it's to be a room that only guest would use, it might be right to coat it with a finish (wax). Applying a finish creates it's luster.There is a safety hazards that might occur to a waxed bathroom floor. You would want plenty of mats in the bathroom.Otherwise for a family and quite bit of traffic don't apply any finish.But your the best judge. Just do what you feel

    Go with a darker or cherry colored flooring. It will contrast really well with the vanity.
