Doing a reno, help me decide on contrasting woods!!

Hi!!  I'm renovating my 5 year old house that has clear maple bannisters and capping.  The house is very open concept and I'm replacing the kitchen entirely.  Can I use Espresso colored wood for my new cabinetry? I'm putting in new hardwoods as well and want to go fairly dark with those as well.  My kitchen guy says yes, but I really want some opinions!!
