Atmospheric decor is definitely on trend: dark walls, black furniture and contrasting accessories can refine any room. Today we’re sharing cool whimsy kitchens that really have an ambience like no other, and you’ll see that whimsy doesn’t mean gloomy.
An atmospheric kitchen can have any style. The main idea is the color scheme and the atmosphere it creates. Black and dark gray are the most popular colors for atmospheric kitchens. You can easily find such cabinets from different designers or even paint your kitchen yourself. VIPP is one of the most famous manufacturers of such kitchens: they have a lot of black metal options for fans of industrial style. In order not to make your kitchen boring, play with textures: black metal, black tiles, black stone or marble, black wood or plastic panels look different and can be mixed and matched to your advantage. Another idea is to paint the walls and go for dark colors and then rock light wood cabinets for contrast.
Don’t forget the accents, because they create style and atmosphere. Brass lamps and hood for a mid-century modern kitchen, a veined marble backsplash for a minimalist dark kitchen, bold chairs for a vibrant touch. I also like the idea of creating a contrasting kitchen island, for example going white if you have an all black kitchen or rocking neutral colored stone or marble in a moody gray kitchen.
