Black Kitchens

Black kitchens are an eternally stylish choice often associated with daring designers and savvy decorators. If you want a kitchen with the wow factor then dark tones are certain to make an impact.

Modern black kitchens are the height of sophisticated kitchen design. Handleless matte finishes with metallic metal accents can be seen in premium showrooms, with innovative German brands like SieMatic and Rotpunkt flying the flag for this stunning kitchen palette.
Visualising pitch-black cabinetry? Think again. There are lots of darker shades available, and many modern black kitchens are leaning towards the grey spectrum, in colours such as ‘Carbon’ or ‘Slate.’

When it comes to worktops for black kitchens, you have a surprising amount of choice. Contrasting worktops in light colours and materials such as stone or granite are a showstopping choice. Slate grey worktops are another popular option. Look for materials like Dekton, Corian and laminate that will offer these colours.

Because dark colours absorb light, these shades can add depth and warmth to a larger space. Those with big kitchens or open plan layouts can use black cabinetry to create a cosy and inviting atmosphere and separate their living zones.

If your space is on the smaller side, a dark kitchen can still look great. Open shelving is a stylish choice that keeps a space from seeming cramped, and opting for open shelving instead of wall cabinets can work wonders to create space. Think carefully about the lighting, incorporate brighter bulbs and utilise mirrored and light-reflecting surfaces to create the illusion of space.

If you don’t want an all-black interior, why not incorporate some black cabinetry or accents into your design? Contrast with white units for an on-trend look, or add wall units or a breakfast bar in a darker shade.

If you love the idea of black kitchens but favour a classic look, why not paint shaker cabinetry in a colour of your choice? There is a wide range of dark-toned paint colours on the market from leading brands. Farrow and Ball’s Off Black is a soft black with a cool blue undertone. The Little Greene Paint Company produce a shade called Jack Black – a deep absolute black inspired by soot and coal.

Wondering how to style classic dark cabinetry? Interior designers love adding bright colours and prints in their black kitchens to create an eclectic vintage feel. Jewel colours, animal prints, and plant life all compliment darker decors. A dark interior can be as colourful as a white one!
