I like the lighter colors in a small space - makes it seem bigger. The cabinets in our current rig are a light cherry, and very well crafted. I would miss the richness of the wood if they were just a plain laminate. Some of the soft trim is a very dark coffee brown, and I would prefer a much lighter color.
