Black kitchen: combinations and tips
Simply put: a black kitchen is a sign of sophistication
Not at all conventional, a black kitchen is extremely trendy among interior design enthusiasts, thanks to its ability to completely revolutionise the style of the home. But which finishes should you choose and how can you match them? Let our recommendations inspire you and find out how to furnish a total black kitchen.
Black is the epitome of elegance: it catches the eye and creates an effect with a powerful presence. Do you prefer matt or glossy? When choosing the finish, as well as reflecting your personal taste, we recommend that you also think about the space available and the brightness of the room.
More specifically, if the room has large windows and plenty of natural light, you can definitely be daring and choose a matt black kitchen. This particular version of the Carattere model is in Slate Black matt lacquered finish, combined with the “Fluida” Wall System in Iron Grey decorative melamine and central island with steel worktop: extremely modern, don’t you think?
On the other hand, if the kitchen is small, we recommend opting for glossy black, a colour that not only helps to overcome the sense of heaviness that an entirely matt kitchen can give, but it also captures the light, making the space seem larger and brighter. Just like black glossy lacquered Baccarat, a classically stylish kitchen that is more contemporary than ever.
Black goes with everything, doesn’t it? Another bonus with this colour is that it can be combined with other colours and materials to create highly dramatic compositions. The most popular combinations include marble, almost always chosen for the worktop, and wood, mainly sought after in the oak finish, both of which are sophisticated materials that contribute to a stylishly chic kitchen.
For a truly evocative contrast of colours and light, you might also consider combining black with silver, gold and steel: Baltimora demonstrates this here in this matt black lacquered solution with silver decorations and steel monobloc, one of the most glamorous versions of a large kitchen, but designed down to the smallest detail.
Choosing accessories to brighten up the colour scheme is always a good idea, starting with appliances, lamps and coloured door handles: all of these elements will help to make your black kitchen even more attractive and add a fresh twist to the room.
