Most of us tend to stay away from black because we feel it takes away from the visual spaciousness and lightness of the kitchen. Since the kitchen is already an area of the home filled with shelves, cabinets, appliances and a whole lot more, a white backdrop is generally preferred in favor of something deeper and darker. But careful use of black in the kitchen along with right lighting can turn a seemingly ordinary space into a refined setting that is both posh and practical. A dark, tiled backsplash, cabinets clad in black or even a central island in polished black marble can usher in elegance without feeling overwhelming.
Not to mention, dashes of metallic shine are the perfect complement to industrial spaces. That’s why the stainless steel pots below look right at home in this industrial kitchen! Exposed pipes and a trio of pendant lights complete the look.
Don’t forget about the value of open base cabinetry. Even if your open shelving isn’t mounted on the wall, it’s handy on any level. Easy access is the key. Grouping stainless steel items creates a clean look and provides another layer of organization to your kitchen.
While it is easy to add pops of yellow, red or green to a kitchen in white and gray, colorful accents definitely seem like a thing of the past. Instead of color, think of other ways in which you can create contrast without altering the overall appeal of the lovely kitchen draped in neutral hues. Wood is undoubtedly a fine choice as it is both hip and brings a hint of natural effervescence to a contemporary setting dominated by man-made materials. Wooden cabinets and breakfast bars seem to be the popular option here followed by bar stools and floating shelves.
