This is not just because brown and black is such a nice match, but because if you want your kitchen to have earthy tones, and dark colors to help balance out any over bright elements, then this color combination is great. Now, some kitchen designers will opt for more of a white spectrum, or they may get creative and use green or red. But when they go with the standard, it almost always works.
