Stained concrete floors add warmth to the cooler elements, like the pale wood cabinetry and gray-toned stone. Floating the cabinets on the wall makes the room feel more spacious and adds to the overall contemporary aesthetic.

RMSer dreamyspaces says that a dark wall color works best when you pair it with bright white baseboard and crown molding.
