How to refresh a black kitchen

Black is a classic color that is very trendy these days and you can see many moody spaces with black as the main colour. Black kitchens aren’t that rare these days, but they can look drab, depressed, and boring if you don’t get the design right. How to avoid such effects and ultimately make your kitchen bold and super stylish? Here are some ideas to liven up a black kitchen.


Wood is the best material to warm up and make the space cozy and it goes perfectly with a black kitchen. Opt for a wooden floor and ceiling – these will make your kitchen stand out, especially if you use light wood tones. Try a wooden backsplash which is a trending idea. If you are hesitant about durability, cover it with glass or even use tiles imitating wood. Opt for upper or lower wooden cabinets – just switch the doors and you have a new kitchen! Swap out your countertops for wood panels and this inexpensive idea will completely transform the look of your space.

Black and white

White is Black’s best partner. You can create any timeless space with such a contrasting combination – these colors never go out of style. You can try white countertops and a backsplash, hang a white lamp or lamps, opt for a white dining table, or replace black cabinets with white ones – top or bottom only. Another idea is to change or repaint your kitchen island to white – statement kitchen islands that stand out from the rest of the kitchen are all the rage.


Metallics never go out of style, just like black and white, and one thing you should definitely do with your black or black and white kitchen is add metallics. You can opt for metal handles, metal tiles, metal countertops, metal lamps, chairs, stools and many other things you like. Match the metals perfectly, or choose a major metal that’s incorporated more often and a different minor metal that’s incorporated less. Get inspired!
