Just like a little black dress, black kitchens never go out of style! With such an intimidating and bold colour, it’s all about adding black to your interior design in a way that adds luxury, chic appeal, and a touch of noir. Here are some great ways to add drama to your kitchen.
#1 – Contrasting Cabinets and Kitchen Islands
Going all black may make your kitchen look more like a dungeon than a designer home, so keep this colour for a key focal point. We love the concept of using black kitchen cabinets and a contrasting white kitchen island, as it adds contemporary glamour to the space without making it too dark.
#2 – A Dramatic Backsplash
Despite what many people believe, dark colours can create a feeling of spaciousness in a small kitchen – when it’s used carefully. A deep, glossy black backsplash of granite or tile set against light cabinetry and shelving causes the walls to feel as if they are deeper than they are, acting a bit like a mirror.
#3 – Glamorous Flooring
Black flooring adds a similar sense of depth and space, creating a velvety and luxurious room. You can go all-black with a dark wood stain, reclaimed marble, or glossy tile, or mix it up with classic black and white herringbone, checkerboard, and diamond shapes for an utterly elegant look. This look was extremely popular in the Victorian times and Arts and Crafts period and is very effective for adding character to smaller spaces, fitting in well in historical homes and industrial apartments alike.
#4 – Industrial Chic
Black goes well with the industrial look, making it a must-have colour for this interior design. You can add it in several ways, like setting your reclaimed shelving against a smoky black wall, painting a wall with chalkboard paint, adding black industrial fixtures, and piping, or using black cabinetry to highlight your brass or steel features.
#5 – Touches of Dark Delight
The key to adding black the right way is to emphasise luxury and drama in key features within the space.
