Black and white modern handleless kitchen

Spotlight on…Black Kitchens

Increasingly on the rise, and as we predicted in our 2019 trends blog, black kitchens are becoming a preferred choice of kitchen colour in modern homes. Why? The sleek, dark shade adds a real sense of luxury to a room as well as creating a statement finish in kitchen design. Whether you opt for all-over black on your cabinets, contrast with another shade or add specific accents, black could be the colour you need to truly transform your home. Here we have picked out some black kitchen projects to inspire you.

Black accents
As well as the lower cabinets in black, this kitchen includes extra accents with the addition of black pendant lighting, black stools and even black salt and pepper mills.

Contrast light and dark as shown in this handleless kitchen design which boasts a monochrome colour palette. Black has been used for the open-shelving along with extra detailing such as the black and white Zebrano accents to the island panel.

Mix and match
In this kitchen black is mixed with a number of finishes including concrete effect cabinets and cloudy oak wall units. The combination allows the dark tall cabinets to be softened with a blend of textures.
