Black Kitchen Designs and Ideas

1. Know the different surfaces and textures

Black doesn’t just mean black! There are different textures to each color and you can choose each one according to the look you are going for. Matte black kitchens, in other words those without a sheen, are best for kitchens with wood as it gives off a truly distinctive look. If you want that elegant style, go with a shiny black that will reflect the lights and flooring. What do you want the counters to be made of? Black marble is certainly classy, but if you are a clean freak it’ll be difficult to determine the grime that can accumulate on it. Whatever you do, make sure you are consistent in your use of textures.

2. Counters

Counters will play a crucial role in your kitchen. You can most certainly go with an all-black, but most kitchen decorators suggest a marble white or metallic grey tones. Don’t think that the contrast will take away from the black look—it won’t! You can even get creative and get glass counters that have black rocks placed underneath them, to keep the color consistent while adding a Zen twist.

3. Flooring

Your kitchen just won’t look good if it doesn’t have a suited flooring. Very pale or creamy colors of tile and wood work best—dark colors will cramp up your space and make it appear smaller, especially when they are wooden planks. Do you want it tile or marble? It’s your choice!

4. Accents

Like explained earlier, whites and metallic tones work best with a black kitchen. Such colors don’t take away from the kitchen, but rather accentuate the simplicity that the space provides. If you want the ultimate minimalist kitchen, go for as little accents as possible and keep everything in black. If you choose to bring a touch of color, use it on the knobs of the drawers, the outlining of the kitchen counters, and even the tiled wall if you choose to have one. Your plates can even become accenting decorations if you opt for clear cabinets. Don’t over do it.

5. Appliances

If you want the ultimate black-colored kitchen, you’re going to have to think about these carefully. If you choose to have your oven, microwave and dishwasher built in, make sure they are of a metallic color or get a designer to match them with the shade and texture of the counters. Since black is a rather minimalist color anyways, think about keeping your counters clear by keeping empty pantries where you can hide away some of your appliances.

6. Lighting

A black kitchen can have various different feels to it depending on the lighting you choose. If you want a kitchen for the modernist connoisseur, go with white lights that hang in small, thin bulbs from the ceiling. If you want to go for something a little more traditional, lots of natural lighting and a chandelier (yes!) can be the trick.
