Black is a very bold, yet chic color. Most people shy away from it in large doses but the truth is, black can create some truly stunning results in broad strokes. Take for instance, black kitchen cabinets. It may not be a common choice, but black cabinets are catching on because they have an easy elegance about them. They fit a variety of styles and always serve up sophistication.
Each of the kitchens in this post have their own unique character, but the common element of black cabinets being the dominant force in them prove that this choice of color can have a stunning effect on the space.
This kitchen is a delightful mix of cottage charm and contemporary style. Silver bar stools play well off the rugs, which bring extra personality to the space.
The black cabinets are warmed up with a rustic wood floor and neutral backdrop for a more traditional appeal.
I love how the one bank of cabinets reaches all the way to the ceiling, taking advantage of the height.
High gloss black paint on the cabinets and a gold chandelier bring a lot of drama and glamour to this space.
Crisp black and white looks super chic in this kitchen, especially when contrasted to such extremes.
A colorful pattern on the floor, a white island, and a wood table keep the cabinets from being the dominant force.
In this kitchen, a wood island and white upper cabinets bring some variety to the rich space.
To really elevate the drama, the walls and ceiling match the black on the cabinets.
A polished butcher block counter top looks chic and warm atop the black island.
Would you ever consider painting your kitchen cabinets black?
