This awesome black and white kitchen is a great example of how you can make heavily contemporary styles very approachable to the average home buyer. Most people are scared of ultra modern homes because they worry that they will be too cold and harsh, but beautiful kitchens can be made in an edgy contemporary style. In my opinion, despite the rich black cabinetry, crisp white countertops and stainless accents, the kitchen is actually quite warm and inviting. The key to achieving this is incorporating comforting elements like a plush grey rug, comfortable island stools and a lot of bright natural light from the windows and French doors. Don't feel like you have to settle for white kitchen ideas just to please others, definitely experiment with unexpected (or intimidating) color palettes.
A black and white kitchen is actually one of my favorite types of designs to work on because the monochromatic look is so classic and simple. Just because black and white kitchen decor is only comprised of two main colors, does not mean that these looks are bland and boring. The subtle style that a monochromatic color palette brings to a space is extremely chic and posh, and looks particularly fantastic with a very modern vibe. it is easy to convert just about any of your favorite white kitchen designs into a space like this. One of the easiest projects to take on first is a great centerpiece island. A marble-look solid surface material is a great product to use for this particular look, but even a simple granite will do just fine.
I have been seeing black and white kitchen designs all over the place lately, and I must say that I am in love what this new trend. This home features one of my favorite black and white kitchen cabinets ideas brought to life in a cool beachy cottage. The white paneled units surrounding the perimeter of the kitchen provide a simple and monochromatic backdrop to the eclectic design. A bold black island centers the design, especially with the addition of a thick marble slab with attached butcher block countertop peninsula. Even though the design is a bit mismatched in terms of finishes and color schemes, it all works together in harmony with the bronze pendent light fixtures hanging throughout the space.
I think that this black and white kitchen is such a cool twist on your classic contemporary design. We wanted to do something a little bit different than your typical modern white kitchen that tend to be very neutral and monochromatic. Although this space certainly has a simplistic color palette, the mixture of black, white and grey elements creates a very fun and lively design. We actually started out the design by first selecting the gorgeous ashy wood tile floors. Then we opted for these sleek white kitchen cabinets because we felt that they would provide the best foundation for wherever we decided to take the look. The real pizazz came in when we added the awesome graphite backsplash along the entire back wall that really anchors the contemporary style.
The perfect accent to any black and white kitchen is an awesome marble accent piece. As many of you I am sure know, marble countertops can be a bit problematic because of their tendency to scratch and stain. This makes maintenance a challenge and, quite frankly, I think that these downsides do not make their price worth it. You can achieve the same classic look with some great solid surface countertop options that many companies are offering now. This particular black and white backsplash with coordinating island is made of a quartz product and, as such, is virtually indestructible. Plus, I think that the unique marbling pattern actually blends better with the sleek contemporary kitchen more so than traditional stone would have.
I have been playing around with the idea of changing up this space a bit to turn it into a very chic black and white kitchen. Obviously we have a pretty simplistic base between the marble kitchen backsplash ideas with white cabinets and matching tiled floors, but I still think that it lacks personality and overall style. It would be really cool to bring in some bolder elements like a traditional style contrasting black island in the center of the room and perhaps some very elegant light fixtures. I want the room to be more than an all white space, and currently the granite countertops, cabinetry and floor have kept it quite monochromatic. A few pops of black is all that this space needs to take the decor to the next level.
