You know we love a light, bright kitchen, full of sparkling surfaces and paint.
But, on the flip side, we think that more than just a touch of black can be totally chic.
When done properly, darker shades can make a kitchen feel cozy, romantic and perfect for entertaining.
This small space, for example, feels warm and very, very special with the addition of dark paint colors and deep wood floors. And aren’t those lights amazing?
Darker shades with splashes of white in all the right places, and, of course, that all-important burst of metallic feel wintery and just-right for the changing seasons.The matte finish of the cabinet paint lends sophistication.
Especially in a kitchen like this with tons of natural light, a dark paint color seems like a natural choice. Splashes of color from elements like greenery and lemons add to the overall appeal.
This kitchen is totally fabulous and completely luxe. We love the sheen on absolutely everything. And those white floors keep it from feeling too stuffy!
Dark cabinets. White countertops. Perfection.
Glass front cabinets are wonderful for infusing any space with light and making it feel open. We love displaying china!
A black backsplash adds depth and dimension to this sunny kitchen.
Steel and glass windows add just the right amount of industrial edge. This kitchen looks like the kind of space perfect for entertaining.
If blacks and browns aren’t your thing, that warm, romantic look can also be achieved with an array of gorgeous shades. This beautiful blue ties together the kitchen and dining room in high style.
