While white kitchens remain classic, color is making a comeback in cooking spaces and black cabinets are a popular way to create sophisticated contrasts. “Dark kitchen cabinets have an understated elegance that exudes European sophistication,” says Bob Bakes, Head of Design at Bakes & Kropp. “We’re finding that homeowners are becoming bolder in their design choices.”
Like clothing, black cabinets go with virtually anything, complementing a variety of natural materials, metallic finishes and kitchen color palettes. They also add depth and a sense of luxury while avoiding the stark feel associated with many all-white kitchens. If you’re ready to take the plunge to the dark side, take a look at these kitchens with black cabinets to inspire your own space.
