Black and white are two primary colors that form the most classic combination of all time. It’s exquisite, dramatic, timeless and chic. It is an ideal choice for those who do not wish to further renovate. A black and white combo can make a bold visual statement in any space you choose and suits many styles. Today I want to draw your attention to black and white kitchens.
Try different styles
Black and white is the most popular scheme for modern, minimalist and Scandinavian spaces, but a monochrome kitchen in these colors is always an asset, no matter what style you choose: traditional, glam, art deco or whatever you like.
Add different colors and shades
Choosing black and white doesn’t mean you should only stick to those that use the darkest black and sharpest white. Change up your color scheme by trying different shades of black and white. For example, use charcoal black or cream white to achieve the look you want. If you think black is too overwhelming, minimize the crowd in the decor – just add some black accents. Choose between matte and glossy finishes or mix them up for an on-trend space. Try black and white patterns to make the kitchen more eye-catching.
Don’t be afraid to add a few contrasting accents like red pots, colorful crockery and natural wood to make the kitchen cozier and more welcoming.
Textures make any decor more eye-catching and cool, so rock different materials in black and white to make your kitchen look more interesting. A simple whitewashed brick wall can add a stunning industrial flair to the space, and black wood makes any space more homely and cozy. Marble is a luxurious and durable material that complements any decor and is timeless.
look at the size
If you think that a small kitchen should only be decorated in light tones to make it appear bigger, you are wrong: rocking black and white in the right proportions is a good idea even in the smallest of spaces. Just maximize white and minimize the amount of black. You can just add a few taps and you’re done. Glossy surfaces reflect light and make your room look bigger than it is.
Liven up the room
To keep the kitchen lively and fresh, you can add greens everywhere in pots. If you grow herbs and vegetables there, this is just the thing to add a lively touch to the kitchen.
