It is a myth that a black kitchen will not go with most of the colors and make the kitchen look dark; you just need to smartly plan the countertops, and floor, walls and lights to create a bold kitchen statement instead of making it dull and depressing. Having black kitchen cabinets with black countertops and hues of grey on the floor and walls will certainly steal the gaze. After all it is all about the statement you want to create and the tone you wish to give to the kitchen space. Blending is very important in black kitchens as we have said it before, black is a bold color. So a seamless blending of colors and designs of countertops, floor, walls and lights will undoubtedly give beautiful results.

Lighting plays a crucial role in kitchens with black cabinets to create a balance between the dark of the cabinets and light of the kitchen. So thoroughly look at the windows and analyze the amount of natural light in the kitchen already, and what supplementary lightings you will need to create the desired effect.  For large kitchen spaces, it is advised to first have an island in the kitchen with black top and white cabinets and design the rest of the parts accordingly. You can play with other bold colors like Red or Orange on chairs and stools or maybe the containers. This will make the area little dramatic and add fun as well. A tinge of these colors will make the kitchen seem more vivacious.

You can complement the above set-up with grey walls and floor with a mix of grey, white and black marbles. Also, the kind of black you choose for cabinets is also very important. Shiny, glossy black will require high maintenance and attention as it will easily catch the finger print marks and smudges. Hence, a flat black will give the desired look and will be low maintenance as well. How about hanging frames on kitchen walls in sync with the tone and mood of the overall kitchen area!! You could also go for a colorful light set-up. For example a yellow chandelier right above the black kitchen island will look so beautiful.
