Great questions however I do not recall the exact names of the stains. The cabinets are a very dark brown (no red or gold undertones) on alder wood. The floors are a dark walnut, also very brown but with a few slight gold undertone to bring out the cream cabinets ad creamy wall color. The cabinets are from Mouser Cabinetry out of Elizabethtown, Kentucky. The floors were finished by a local flooring company. I picked the floor wood species first then sampled my final three choices of stain color. Once I found the one I wanted, I chose the darkest brown in the floor and matched that to get my cabinet finish. I hope this helps. Best wishes and God bless!

what is the ceiling height? - And was there a reason you did not take the cabinets to the ceiling? Great job.

The ceilings are 10'. I did not go to the ceiling because I wanted the rooms to flow and feel "airy". Taking cabinets to the ceiling in a 10' room, although beautiful, feels bulkier and heavier than the look we were going for. Because the kitchen is open to the adjacent rooms, I felt that going to the ceiling would add too much visual weight in this one particular area. To balance that weight, I would have needed larger pieces in the living area, which is not the look I was going for in this house. We wanted everything to feel very light and almost minimalistic. Keep in mind, these cabinet's top alignment is 102", before the crown molding. So, although they do not go to the ceiling, they are still quite tall.
