Take a look at these black kitchen designs
This matte black handleless kitchen really does a fantastic job in creating a mood. The mild lighting and tan accessories, give this a very high end kitchen look.
It’s a busy image with plenty going on,,,and definitely not one for the minimalists. However, what a wonderful kitchen. A kitchen definitely designed for living, it tells a story…and what about that table…amazing.
A minimalists dream…you see very little. Clearly with a kitchen like this, its not designed to be a core part of the house…so why make it over fussy? The way it fits this space is perfect.
A interesting take on a black kitchen idea, this one uses the color white to really separate it. The granite looks incredible and really adds to the darkness of the units. It also really complements the wonderful flooring, really drawing out the natural colors.
This image makes me shake with excitement. I love the way that a natural beech colour is used to contrast with the ultra modern black units. It does a fantastic job of breaking up the space. Add in the industrial concrete background, and you get a great space that has the ‘wow’ factor.
Rustic is the name of the game here, and it is this natural finish that gives it so much character. The limited color palette works because you have a huge amount of light from the window.
Ultra modern and ultra chic…no expenses spared here. The clinical way in which this black kitchen is executed, is probably a reflection of the environment in which it sits. I particularly like how much of the light comes from the large shelves. A very nice space indeed.
A black kitchen that suits the space perfectly…but not exactly homely, nor much personality. As purely a style statement, it does an excellent job. I particularly like how the base black color complements the copper. Very on trend right now.
A beautiful space complemented by a beautiful black kitchen. I particularly love how they have contrasted the darkness of the kitchen with the white decor and countertops. It lifts the mood of the room while retaining the stylishness of the black units.
I just imagine being twenty floors up, sat at the kitchen island first thing in the morning, sipping on an espresso. That perfect vision is assisted with this wonderful black kitchen idea. Spaced out units at the rear let the industrial looking background shine through, whilst the functional kitchen island goes about its work efficiently.
I very much appreciate how this kitchen makes a great effort to integrate the table into the business end of the kitchen. For any guests that happen to sit there, they are part of the process which makes it a great entertainment space. The black kitchen cabinets have a chrome strip running across the top, and they complement the natural oak colour perfectly. A great example of a modern black kitchen in a functional setting.
What an utterly stylish space! The texture on these black kitchen cabinets is stunning and really reflects a premium finish. The use of complementing materials makes this a very nice space to spend time in. The lighting is something to reflect on here, this image shows how brighter lighting can work well with darker units.
A room oozing with style and personality. The black kitchen island really makes a statement. No bland white walls to be found here, the unit colors perfectly blend with the background. Take note how the units appear to me made from granite, the lovely markings adding some real personality to the units
This kitchen does an amazing job of integrating white and black kitchen units. This mix of units takes the eye across the length of the kitchen, showing the space available. Obviously, you cannot miss the lighting, this stunning lighting setup really adds some character to a room full of straight lines.
Clearly a wonderful space, but look what they have accomplished. This black kitchen is wonderfully complemented by natural oak. This makes it much more ‘softer’ in appearance, given that black kitchen cabinets have a danger of looking dull. The way the oak color separates space is excellently executed.
A kitchen full of character, this is another example of mixing black cabinets with complementing colors. It adds dynamism to the scene and makes the space so much more engaging.
An excellent example of a black kitchen with different levels. The use of white adds space, while the oak adds a softer, premium touch.
With a relatively small, dark place, a black kitchen is quite a risk. This designer has created a black kitchen idea, that removes this risk. The way they have incorporated the lighting and white countertops, makes this an attractive space.
The best of both worlds. A black background with a white foreground. This ensures that the kitchen remains light and airy, while embracing the dark moods of a black kitchen.
A kitchen that espouses a dark, moody and intimate space. This obviously wont be to everybody’s taste, but i can see the attraction. You would obviously need an open plan kitchen or a great deal of space to use a black kitchen in this manner.
A lovely gloss black kitchen that ticks all the boxes, It is neat and tidy, without overly dominating. The advantages of gloss finishes are clear here, the way it reflects light back into the kitchen is great.
Some lovely textures to admire in this black kitchen idea. The black cabinets are mixed with silver to create a great balance. With its space age vibe, it is a modern kitchen for a modern home.
Small and minimalist, i cant imagine many cakes being baked in here. However, as a minimally used space, it is almost perfect. Sleek, simple and great textures.
Wow! the size of this black kitchen is very impressive. Plenty of room to cook and entertain, a great space. Filled with a delicious kitchen that is super stylish. Using traditional shaker style cabinets, the oak countertops, soften the scene. Add in the natural furniture, you have a wonderful place at the core of the home.
A great modern space to complete a great kitchen. This super premium looking kitchen is all about the mood. Great furniture with great lighting.
The black wall cabinets do a great job of disguising them against the dark background. This gives the appearance that the kitchen is low level and a flowing space. The use of the oak colors assist in this too.
A super modern black kitchen idea, it is very imposing. Full black cabinets, handleless and sleek, ensure a dominant aura. The surrounding take the role of raising the mood. Very nicely executed, without doubt a premium kitchen design.
A deceptively large kitchen, the majority of the storage is hidden in the white walls. It gives an appearance that this kitchen is on a single level. The way the kitchen delivers shape and the lighting, make this a stand out black kitchen inspiration.
A great example of how you can fit a small kitchen in a very small area, whilst maximizing the space available. This black kitchen with grey cabinets, does this very well. The kitchen island works wonderfully well here, most would suspect that it would be too imposing. Definitely not the case here.
A super stylish and modern kitchen set in a very modern home. I particularly like how the black units complement the scenery outside the window. The layout of the kitchen is stunning too…spacious while still being functional. This black kitchen image is always well received for the great principles standing behind it.
Gorgeous is the word here, the way the kitchen integrates so well with the garden, is design genius. The sheer amount of light penetrating those huge windows, mean that a fully black kitchen is plausible here.
As you see here in our black kitchen ideas collection of images, deciding on a black kitchen means that you have to consider a wide range of things. Primarily, you should always consider the amount of light available to you.
If you have plenty of light, you can opt for a fully black kitchen. If not, consider accenting the black cabinets to ensure that it breaks up the space. The danger is that in low light, it can end up looking flat in the shadows.
Black is the color of elegance, power, and sophistication. So if you’re choosing a fresh color scheme for your kitchen, you might as well go with the color that screams sophistication.
