Halloween is lurking just around the corner, and there is no better time to talk about dark and dramatic kitchen cabinet finishes and decorative accents. From chic and contemporary cabinets to bespoke backsplash tile, here are a few of our favorite modern kitchen design choices for those who lean towards the dark side.
Kitchen Cabinet Finishes
Dark kitchen cabinet finishes are right on point in a modern kitchen design, whether you prefer rich Regency Espresso, Midtown Java Shaker, Midtown Dark Grey Shaker, or the dark chocolate tone of our Brazillian Shakercollection. You could even go for a bold, two-tone look! Order samples to feel and see the finish and quality of our all wood cabinetry before committing, or take advantage of our free online design service to see how these contemporary cabinets would look in your space.
When selecting countertops for a dark and dramatic kitchen redesign, there are many options to choose from to compliment deep kitchen cabinet finishes. Granite natural stone countertops create a stunning statement, with options like Black Pearl, Depero, Merz and more. Or opt for Argon, Pangea or Essex acrylic solid surface countertops with a seamless, integrated sink — a favorite feature of modern kitchen design.
The best flooring for kitchens should be strong, impervious to water damage, easy to clean, and easy to maintain. Tile checks off all of these boxes, and it also suits the modern kitchen design aesthetic. Options include warm, waterproof rigid core luxury vinyl planks, and durable, wood-look ceramic tile that realistically mimics hardwood floors. Or choose Dimensions Graphite porcelain tile that features a deep gray color. For an extra touch of drama, we recommend our Arabescato Carrara With Black Marble Basket Weave Pattern.
Dark backsplash tile is like the icing on a rich and decadent chocolate cake. Some of our favorite styles include Black Cristezza Club Glass, Montauk Black slate tile, and Metallic Gray Glass subway tile. Of course, you could always go for a dramatic, two-tone, high-contrast look with Bright White Cristezza Club Glass, sparkling Silver Foil, or Glossy White subway tile paired with dark kitchen cabinet finishes and countertops.
Appliances And Decor
When shopping for large appliances like your refrigerator, dishwasher, and range, look for matte black or black stainless steel finishes for a dark twist on modern kitchen design, but don’t stop there. Toasters, blenders, coffee makers, microwaves, and heavy-duty mixers all come in dark and dramatic colors. From there, add area rugs, wall art, table linens, window treatments, furnishings, and other decor to complete your dark and dramatic kitchen redesign.
