Black may be a classic color choice for fashionistas, but kitchens weren’t always so convinced. In the past, the sleek, modern, statement shade has been reserved for certain styles and unique kitchen design ideas. But that was then.
Now we are witnessing a resurgence of black that’s crossing themes and designs, earning itself a place in kitchens all over. It looks like black is officially back — and it’s better than ever! Discover how to incorporate black into your kitchen with these five kitchen design ideas.
1. Kitchen Island Trends
Mixing and matching cabinetry has been one of the top kitchen island trends these past few years. By having your island and wall cabinets in two different finishes, you achieve dimension and add character to the kitchen. Using black as one of your color choices is spot on for securing this design element. For your wall cabinets, warm things up with a rich brown or create a sharp contrast with white kitchen cabinets. Black kitchen islands are unexpected, and an interesting way to incorporate this popular color into your kitchen.
2. Black Kitchen Cabinets
When you think of black kitchen cabinets, you probably picture an ultra-contemporary room that you would never want to bake cookies in. We promise, black cabinets don’t have doors to the dark side. Take a look at our Manchester Shaker Black cabinetry, for example. This stylish set brings both modern style and classic charm. Transitional kitchens, which mix traditional and modern elements, are all the rage right now. And black cabinets are right on trend for transitional kitchen design ideas.
3. Black AstraGranite Sinks
For a uniquely beautiful addition to your kitchen, consider a black AstraGranite sink from Willow Lane Cabinetry. Not familiar with AstraGranite? We suggest you get acquainted. AstraGranite is made from a granite composite material that is comprised of 80% Quartzite and 20% Acrylic. What makes these sinks so remarkable are the silver ions that kill 99% of bacteria on contact. AstraGranite sinks are also scratch and stain resistant, and can resist heat up to 550 degrees. Available in black, as well as other colors, they provide a welcome alternative to traditional kitchen sink materials.
4. Black Stainless Steel Appliances
If you’ve always been a little stainless steel shy when it comes to appliances, we can’t wait to introduce you to black stainless steel. Featuring a darker, satin-smooth finish, black stainless steel is much subtler than the standard, shiny stainless steel appliances. This shade of steel is a dazzling complement to kitchen cabinets with dark finishes, and is a bit easier on the eyes.
5. Black Knobs And Pulls
Just like with your kitchen sink and appliances, you may have thought your metal was limited to just a few finishes. Surprise again! You can actually find beautiful kitchen hardware in black. Browse our selection of cabinet knobs and pulls in these finishes: black, black nickel, brushed black nickel, and satin black nickel.
