Blackgloss Lakes Modern KitchenI know what you’re thinking…isn’t black a little too depressing for a colour design? Especially for a kitchen, a room where you spend a lot of quality time. Well, a new standout design for your kitchen is on the radar. Black in the kitchen, when done right and with care, can take a simple and boring look and turn it into a sleek and modern kitchen.

Most people will want to splash their kitchen with a bright and vibrant colour to add a little flavour to the room, but, some people will want to go for the more modern kitchen. With straightforward lines and simple designs, the little black kitchen will make for a peaceful cooking session.

Don’t picture your kitchen a black hole. Take a step back and vision black cabinets, a black dining table, a black fridge, and black bar stools surrounding the island in the center of the room.

Having the cabinets and essentials of the room in black, will stand out against a white wall, giving the kitchen a very chic look. The easiest way to create a black kitchen is to use black cabinets. These will set the tone of the room, and create the theme of the kitchen. Pairing the black cabinets with stainless steel appliances will create for a very sophisticated look. To keep the dramatic look of a black kitchen, don’t over-do the lighting in the room. Having too much lighting will take away from the calmness of the kitchen. Stick to low, dim lighting, but not too low that it will leave you in the dark during dinner meals.

A black kitchen can be done in many different styles. To keep it warm, make sure to stick to wood flooring. It creates a soft tone to the normally over dramatic black design. If you have a smaller space to work with, make sure not to overwhelm the room with such dark tones, use lighter shades of black on the countertops to balance the overall look. If you have a bolder side, try sticking with all black appliances while having red panels against one side of the kitchen.

The black kitchen can match any personality, it is yours to explore. If you are looking for a more chic and sophisticated, turn to the dark side.
