    Geoffrey - black looks the best, BUT, you might have a problem with having to CONSTANTLY clean the salt-creep of the black - could become ugly and start irritating you.... Just think about it...

    Black with brushed aluminum highlights. Black is just so predictable, that its great to see some variation every now and again, like white:)

    My cabinet is made from superwood and it seems to be fine. The superwood is stained and waterproofed with imbuia stain/waterproofer in one. From far it looks pretty close to black but it the dark brown just kinda goes better with the rest of the decor. And just for sunburst there are some aluminium bits :p
