home: favourite thing [ black kitchens ]
Don’t be misled that a dark coloured kitchen may come across as gloomy and over powering.
We love the new love of black used in the home and kitchens can look so warm but stylish in this misunderstood colour.
Best used in shades slightly off from jet black on walls and tiles – and a good matt finish.
Strengthen the look by also using black kitchen doors and even worktops too. To compliment and add a break in the black, you could also use walnut tone worktops and split the colour choice of doors, instead of them all being black, drop in another colour tone – white, blush or grey.
Add accessories in copper and metallics. A vintage copper tap would be a great feature and if using open shelves give them great bronze wall brackets. Marble also works beautifully in this colour interior, great for a worktop on a kitchen island and splash back, or in smaller touches including lighting, crockery and kitchenalia.
