It helps that this shiny black kitchen is offset by quainty antiquated fittings and fixtures. You'll be the chicest homesteader on the block with this hipster kitchen.
What better way to but a black wall (in a kitchen/dining area) to good use than as a blackboard? Yes, in all the right ways! Ignore the fact you need a step ladder to reach the top of your shopping list - practicality is for people who hate fun.
Woodgrain and black go together like burgers and cheese. In this geourgeous kitchen the sophistication of black is given warmth and softened by a rich woodgrain lest the black feel too cold and dominating.
Not the title of E. L. James' next novel (probably), but black is never just black, you can have warm blacks, cool blacks, blue blacks, red blacks and deep greys. Here the textured semi-matte black tiles soften the glossy cabinets.
There's practically a fully grown tree in this kitchen which is highlighted by the otherwise black and white colour scheme. Green and black were meant to be. What am I saying? Anything and black were meant to be.
Oh god, they have matte black taps. Could it get any sexier?
The trick of this kitchen is that painting the wall black along with the black cabinets makes the whole end of the room recede, making it feel longer.
Mixing black with different woodgrains and a vibrant colour looks striking in this eclectic kitchen
Black cabinets and a black backsplash make an impression.
