The wood coloring here is awesome. I almost think of chocolate when I look at this kitchen design. They have taken the dark wood of the paneling and really used it to its full extent, without overpowering the design. That is not easy to do, especially given the fact that they also used black in the countertops. What actually helps brighten the room is the deft use of the white door coloring in the background, and the silver fridge. It is amazing what two elements can do to bring balance to the visual element of a kitchen design. This is a great space.
