A touch of traditional
Black kitchens don’t just fit contemporary design and as proof, check out these dreamy kitchens that embrace black cabinets for a modern twist on a traditional style.
Shaker profiles and black are a winning combo, only made better by a hint of bling with metallic hardware. If you want to use statement handles similar to these kitchens, check out our top places to shop for handles here.
Contemporary design is one of the most difficult design styles to pin down because it’s a fluid design that refers to what’s ‘here and now’. Right now, the use of stone, architectural lighting and floor-to-ceiling joinery fit the contemporary brief. Also, pushing the boundaries of a traditional island bench by creating the sense of furniture legs or embracing a curved design are very contemporary.
Terrazzo has been making a comeback in recent years and when it looks this good in the kitchen, why wouldn’t you embrace it?! As well terrazzo, we’re seeing a return of ’70’s design features — think bold floors, curved cabinetry and statement splashbacks — so perhaps the inspiration for your new kitchen lies in the past?
Many of these kitchens fit within the contemporary design umbrella but they pare things back so far that we felt they deserved their own title. Minimalist design stands the test of time and you can personalise these kitchens with your own styling or embrace their simplicity and sense of zen!
A combination too good to resist = black cabinets + stone. Whether you embrace the real deal or find an engineered alternative, black joinery picks up on the veining of stone and is a winning formula to elevate the look of any kitchen.
