What Is the Espresso Colour Used in Furniture?
Espresso is a colour that stands between black and brown. It's really a dark brown that is usually mistaken to be a true black. Many times furniture will be listed as “black” when it is in reality espresso. But you don't have to fret, the difference is so difficult to notice that you can use espresso in place of black furnishings.
When it comes to black, you likely won't find much variation among the shades that you have to choose from. However, with brown, there is a wide range of possible shades to work with, so it's important to choose the right one to pair with black in your room.
Best Kitchen Cabinet Painting in Espresso Colours
Painting cabinets is one of the best ways to redo an outdated kitchen without spending a lot of money. Cabinet painting, although time-consuming, is a relatively easy job that any able-bodied homeowner can do themselves. One of the most important parts of a cabinet painting job, besides the preparation, is shopping for quality paint.
After cleaning and thoroughly sanding kitchen cabinets ready for painting, it is really important to apply a quality primer undercoat. Primer seals the sanded cabinet wood, block stains and forms a tacky surface that bonds well with the new topcoat of paint. One primer that we have used successfully for years is Problock from Sherwin Williams, but do buy the oil-based version, not the latex.

Classy Projects With Dark Kitchen Cabinets
Nothing spells “classy” like the colour black! Look closely and you will see the wood grain in these beautiful kitchens. If you love wood and want a 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.
To add a splash of sophistication to bright white kitchens (our favourites are Farrow and Ball “all-white”, and Benjamin Moore “decorators white”. Both are bright and welcoming. I like to add a dark grey, like Benjamin Moore grey to the cabinets. It’s the perfect combination
