You can NEVER go wrong with chocolate. But, I wouldn't have the floor match, I would go with a much lighter color. Too many dark big ticket items will bring the room down.

Countertop is a personal choice, some people love granite and marble, some do not. You need to look around and find something that "sings" to you.

As for the backsplash, personally I like the beautiful glass tiles, and I can't imagine anything easier to keep clean. You can also find meshed sheets of glass and stone mosaic tiles together that are quite stunning.

Thank you for your suggestion I am still debating between dark or white kitchen cabinets. Specially when i would like dark color floors even in the kitchen. I also like granite counter top with not very big designee.

Please allow me to warn you about dark floors! They need CONSTANT cleaning. You can sweep and vacuum and mop til the cows come home, and they still look dirty. This is the voice of experience you are hearing, I've had them before.

If you have natural wood now and need a change, go ahead with the dark floors I think they will be beautiful, just high maintenance. But maybe you're not as lazy as I am and it won't bother you! I wish you well.
