Prevent the space from looking too intense by introducing pale features, like white counters and light-grey floors. As well as adding bright tones to a room, they will create a stylish monochrome scheme that will look good for many years. Keep the intense tone of the cupboards in the spotlight by opting for discreet functional features. An undermount sink-bowl can be fitted beneath a work surface to create a sleek look that will accentuate the high-end feel of a design. Complete the layout with bar-style handgrips, which will add subtle linear accents to an interior. Go for a bright chrome tone to punctuate the dark cabinetry for an eye-catching effect.
