Espresso Kitchen Cabinets: Nothing spells "classy" like the color black! Look closely and you will see the wood grain in these beautiful kitchens. If you love wood and want dark and rich environment, then a nearly-black stained wood kitchen is definitely worth considering. Traditional black or nearly black stained cabinets show a high level of sophistication, and are often found in high-end kitchens and multimillion-dollar homes. Dark wood cabinets are perfect for those who enjoy the beauty of wood and also want the more formal ambiance of a black kitchen. If you love to entertain and bring people together in a luxurious setting, then a dark golden-brown kitchen may be right for you!

Dark Wood Kitchens - Everyday Use: Like a beautiful ebony grand piano, dark wood kitchen cabinets will require an extra measure of care and attention. Dark colors are luxurious, so your traditional dark kitchen should be treated like an evening gown or a Rolls-Royce; impeccable cleanliness is key. Because dust tends to stand out visually on a dark surface, dark kitchen cabinets require more frequent gentle cleaning and dusting. That said, the wood grain and finish variations in dark wood kitchens do help to obscure dust compared to solid-painted cabinets. Knowing what to expect in advance can pay off with a lifetime of enjoyment in your dark wood kitchen.
