Designing a black kitchen does not have to be a dark experience. This neutral color is often overlooked in the interior design world. If you love the dark black kitchen look, here are the ways to incorporate this elegant color.

Choose a Color Scheme

Pick out a color to contrast or coordinate with the black. If you want a monochromatic look, choose varying shades of black and gray. This goes well with an industrial or minimalist look. For a stark contrast, pair the black with a bright white. This lends well to both contemporary and retro spaces. The beauty of designing a black kitchen is the color being the perfect backdrop to any other of your favorite hues.

Large Purchase Choices

If you are planning a complete renovation, start with purchasing all black appliances for a truly dark look or stainless steel and black appliances if you are incorporating black into another contemporary-themed kitchen. Other large purchase choices include lighting, such as a Gothic-looking black chandelier with crystal accents above the table or chrome pendant lights with black shades above the island, and cabinetry. Classic wood cabinets, sleek white cabinets, and polished black cabinets will offer a different take on your dark kitchen. Choose countertops and flooring to coordinate with the rest of your black design choices.

Finishing Design Details

Paint your walls in your accent color and add an elegant black tiled backsplash. If you have wood or white cabinets, add black hardware to coordinate. Choose a black porcelain sink for a Gothic feel or a white farmhouse sink with a black vintage faucet for contrast.

Picking Out Accessories

Add black to your kitchen with accessories. Canisters, dish towels, bread boxes, cooking utensils, dishes, pots and pans, and almost any other culinary necessity comes in shades of black. Choose dark flowering plants for windows and window coverings, such as shades or curtains, in black. Coordinate chair coverings, table linens, and decorative accessories in the dark hue.

Even if you cannot change the foundation of the space, you can incorporate black into your decorating plan. Join the dark side of design, by designing a black kitchen fit for Gothic royalty.
