To really create a designer and luxurious black kitchen space, try and avoid having any other colors in the space. Take out any colorful pieces from the kitchen. This doesn’t mean you can’t add some warmth and shades into the space – they just need to be handpicked pieces. Here are some black kitchen ideas to help you design your space.
Use Neutral and Natural Colors
Add pieces into the kitchen that have a natural or neutral color. So use natural materials like metals (brushed stainless steel, copper, brass), wood, and stone (tiles, marble), or even brick.
Check out the great combination of black cabinets and an exposed brick wall in the kitchen in picture (2).
Or see how the wood really stands out and adds warmth to the black kitchen in picture (1).
Try to balance the amount of black you have. All black cabinets, with a white backsplash and countertop is an example of good balance – just like in picture (3).
Then again some people might like an all black kitchen (4). You can add some style to it by infusing different textures. A stone wall (6), a wooden one like in picture (7), or glossy tiles (8) adds a design element to otherwise flat dull black walls.
Making Sure It Is a Bright Space
The black decor and walls of the kitchen will make the space feel quite dark. So you’ll need to make sure you have enough lighting, especially around the work areas (countertops, cooker, over the kitchen island, over the kitchen table, and over the sink).
Some elegant lighting ideas include black pendant lights, but the inside of the light shade is another color like gold or silver.
