Black Kitchen Inspiration


Choosing to go with white for our kitchen was an easy decision. It had been on the wishlist for many years! I am however quite partial to a bit of black in the kitchen. Whether it's just a small area such as a splashback, or the whole area including cabinetry and benchtops, black can create drama and interest. If you're currently deciding on a new kitchen colour, these beauties may indeed beckon you over to the dark side!

Herringbone flooring and a touch of pink make this first kitchen one of my top picks. 

The next three kitchens feature that winning combination of black, white and walnut. The black tiled splashback and minimalist clock are both simple yet striking features of the one below.

The addition of greenery and graphic floor tiles that make this next one a standout. How amazing is that glasshouse/room divider? 

You've no doubt picked up on my current obsession with open shelves, such as those featured below. I'm getting some for the office and kidsrooms, but they also provide great display shelves in the kitchen.

Marble, a black mixer and apothecary bottles above make my heart sing, as do the double Tolomeo wall lamps below. 

Speaking of lights, the Muuto Unfold Pendants look gorgeous in the black and concrete kitchen above.

Dark floors and black cabinetry above create a striking block colour effect, with the contrasting white walls.   

I just had to include the amazing Vipp kitchen that I featured in this post. Taken from a different angle, behind the island this time, it shows the fabulous benchtop details and shelving. 

To finish off, I've picked this kitchen because I absolutely love how the brick wall contrasts with the black cabinetry.

For plenty more black kitchen inspiration, take a look at my Kitchen Pinterest board.

You may not hear from me tomorrow, as I'm juggling several blog-related projects and also working hard to get a Home Build bathroom post up before the week's out! I will still be posting regularly on Facebook and Instagram, so do keep in touch there.

  1. Black kitchens can be really striking. And they make colours pop, I love the pink in the one you featured first. x

    1. So true.... love the pink rug on the herringbone floor x

  2. Wow, I love the first image because it doesn't immediately read as a kitchen - looks like a lovely piece of furniture. Maybe it's the benchtop in the same matte black. Love it to pieces.

    1. Yes, you're so right - It took me a second to realise it was actually a kitchen when I first saw it on Pinterest! x

  3. I love black kitchens, they give such clean lines. I guess the only thing needed would be a fairly large and light room. Good luck tomorrow whatever it may be, look forward to find out all about it! Mel x

  4. I have made a comment under Diningrooms White and green. I see your last reply was in May 2013. I am just afraid you might miss it and I need some info from you urgently please? I absolutely love your blog! It helps me a lot!!!

    1. Thanks Heidi - so lovely to hear that! I've just replied to comment over on the Dining Rooms Post. Look forward to hearing back from you soon x

  5. Thank you! Just left a comment to Anna, hopes she can read and write english...he he...xx will keep you posted!

  6. I think the black theme in the kitchen is effective, it looks sexy and elegant.

  7. Lovely post and gorgeous kitchens. Those black overhead lights in the first picture are phenomenal. You don't happen to know who makes the black mixer in the 5th picture do you? Thanks!

    1. Thanks Jessica. I don't, but I've traced back to the source (Yellowtrace) and it says it is a modular kitchen by WSWorkshop. I would suggest contacting them direct. Here is the link:
      Good luck! x
