            Black Kitchen Ideas

            From chic charcoal to gallant graphite, black kitchen ideas are redefining cooking spaces thanks to its sophisticated dark tone that makes a bold statement. Easy to personalise, black kitchens can be achieved in layouts large and small with careful planning and considered styling. Whether it is a striking monochrome look, an engineered style, or a luxurious design that paves the way for entertaining, this black kitchen inspiration will inspire a redesign in any home.

            "Black is a statement hue, so it's great for injecting character into an interior. It's also an excellent neutral that mixes with other colours, metallics, or textures for a personalised space."

            • 1. Bygone black style

              Black tones enhance engineered looks, as its industrious hue is reminiscent of factories from a bygone era. Heritage, shaker style elevates this classic aesthetic.
            • 2. Intimate and inviting 

              Dark hues draw in a room for a cosy atmosphere. An integrated handle keeps visual clutter to a minimum, so this colour remains inviting in smaller spaces.
            • 3. Gravitate to gloss

              Try cupboards with a gloss finish for a soft take on black kitchen design. The reflective surface maximises light and lifts the dark tone for a less intense effect.
            • 4. Try timber textures

              Natural woodgrain adds organic character and warmth to an all-black scheme. @belach_uige_bothy has chosen timber surfaces to balance this bold shade.
            • L-shape black kitchen idea with super-matt slab doors, glass wall cabinets above a white worktop, and a chrome kitchen tap.

              5. Layer black on black

              For a bold statement,  layer black cupboards with other dark fixtures. We recommend switching to black glass units for textural variation and a luxe touch.
            • 6. Make it monochrome

              Add inky tones in a subtle way by choosing a two-tone scheme. @inside.no6 chose a black island with white units to create a focal point in their monochrome room.
            • 7. Tap into darker hues

              Go for a winning combo by completing a sinka with a black tap. Easy to retrofit, this black kitchen idea offers a fast refresh for existing layouts.  
            • 8. Sink into the deep

              A quick fix for adding a black feature to a room is to switch up a washbowl for a  dark model. This colour shows fewer stains making it a low-maintenance choice.
            • A classic monochrome black kitchen idea using white and charcoal slab cupboards, matt-black trims, and a marble backboard.

              9. Tackle shadows head on 

              For a small black kitchen idea, invest in good lighting. Strip lights will keep a room bright while adding leading, illuminated lines to a design to elongate a space.
            • 10. Add brass accents

              Metallic touches lift a dark palette for a curated look. We like the brass handles that @marantdevelopmentltd has chosen for adding warmth to this cool tone.
