Espresso cabinets are a rich dark brown that go with any color scheme.

Consider Your Space:

Whether you are a homeowner with a classic, simple taste or you want a space with bright colors and bold patterns, you need to consider the shape and size of your space when making a color decision. If you have an open floor plan with plenty of natural lighting you may want to choose a darker shade of stain or even pastel colors as these will allow the space to maintain an open feel. If you are working with a smaller space or a space with limited lighting a set of white or bold colored cabinetry can make your space feel larger than it really is.
