While white kitchens will always be the most classic choice for cabinetry, black cabinetry is having a BIG moment right now. A little bolder than the popular gray, black is still traditional but with an edge. This choice works especially well in bright, open kitchens, but can also make small kitchens feel more special and interesting. One thing I wish I had done with my own kitchen renovation is be braver with the lower cabinet color- I went with a light/medium grey when I REALLY wanted to go charcoal. But I was scared and went the safer route, since my kitchen is small and on the dark side. Perhaps in a couple years I’ll repaint the lowers if I still like the idea. In the meantime, take a peek at these inspiration images utilizing black cabinetry in big and small ways and let me know what you think about black cabinetry in kitchens!
These windows are so fantastic and made the focal point by the black cabinetry.
Another shot of the kitchen above, I adore this space! The high ceilings keep the black from being overwhelming.
