3 Black Kitchen Looks We Love
Not to dis the classic white kitchen (we’ll happily admit that we’re suckers for a subway tile), but it’s nice to see some darker shades sneaking their way into kitchen designs, too.
Look #1: Negative Space
Black accents, deployed with care, can add depth to a space. In this Falken Reynolds kitchen, the cooktop area is decked out with a Raven Caesarstone countertop and matching backsplash and cabinets to add some negative space and to avoid a wall of white.
Look #2: Narrow Minded
When Elena Del Bucchia designed a kitchen for a bachelor banker in Calgary, she took her cue for the palette from his black suits and created a feature wall that helps elongate a narrow layout.
Look #3: Focal Point
For Gillian Segal of Gillian Segal Design, black window and door frames (and matching Louis-chair-style bar stools) give an airy space some moments of focus in the Vancouver kitchen she designed for clients. But there may be another reason to give the black accent trend a try: “It’s really forgiving for less fastidious chefs,” laughs Chad Falkenberg of Falken Reynolds.
