black kitchen design, colourful design, kitchen

Many people are afraid of using black as a central color in any room in the house, and most people would never consider having a black kitchen! But you’re not most people! When used properly, black can be a gorgeous, warm and elegant color in any space, even the kitchen. Also, you’re bound to be a trendsetter by experimenting with a dark kitchen, but your friends and family will only be impressed with how great your black accented kitchen looks.

Gone are the days of only having a few tried and true options for kitchen interior design. Stark white and sterile kitchens, or country kitchens covered in light wood and country tchotchkes are no longer the go-to design looks. Modern homeowners spend a lot of time in their kitchens, and want that space to reflect their personal taste and style.

Take a look at my black kitchen design inspirations below and surprise yourself with how amazing this sultry and sophisticated color can look in the room where you make scrambled eggs and do dishes!
