Black Kitchen Cabinet Ideas

Looking for black kitchen cabinet ideas? Black kitchen cabinets make a strong visual impact while adding sophistication and elegance to a kitchen. They also work well in several applications including modern, rustic, modern rustic, and farmhouse kitchens. Paired with bright metals – black can truly shine while providing an elegant option that grounds the space.

A Striking Modern Rustic Kitchen with Black Cabinets

Traditional architectural details are blended with the contemporary to create a cohesive kitchen design for the homeowners who lean toward modern design. WPD blended a neutral foundation with pops of color to enhance the home’s finishes and create depth. Beautiful fabrics mix well with slick metals and warm woods in this eclectic residence.

The flooring is Duchateau ‘Riverstone’ which has a mixture of smoky grey, the light golden tone of weathered wheat, and a light off-white to accent the grain pattern in each plank. Over time, the depth of color will begin to evolve as the white in the grain begins to fade, moving the greys and browns more to the forefront and minimizing the grain pattern. This style, though difficult to describe exudes a feeling of comfort and elegance at the same time. The Riverstone Collection® is inspired by the textures of softly tumbled rocks that you find at the river’s edge. Natural distressing and raised knots create an organic look and rustic feel that is at home in almost any setting.

Stunning Modern Rustic Kitchen with Black Cabinets

A Well-Designed Modern Farmhouse Kitchen with Black Cabinets & Warm Textures
Image courtesy of Park & Oak

In this stunning kitchen designed by Park & Oak, the clients felt strongly about keeping the full-size sink off the island but also wanted the convenience of a prep sink. Park & Oak loves a little creative space planning, and the result is a placement for both sinks that feels intentional, gives interest to the room, and still meets their clients’ distinct needs. The location of the main sink along the back cabinet bank also gave them a great opportunity to highlight the beautiful Tabarka tile. Tabarka is renowned for their collections of terracotta tile that are formed, painted, and glazed by hand. By locating the sink here and adding a pretty Kohler Artifacts faucet, the focus will always come to this special tile.

To further highlight the area, they chose to stain the cabinets just above the tile in a higher sheen than their painted neighbors. This helps lend the look of an antique piece and is also a striking backdrop for the copper island pendants, whose patina gives depth and warmth to the room. These small details all come together to give this new kitchen a touch of old-world character.

Camp Style Cabin with Open Kitchen

A farmhouse in Michigan with a ‘camp’ style cabin for guests to crash in, complete with a full kitchen, lounge areas, and a food hall set up in the garage. Gray LVT flooring tones down the warm wood tones in the space to create a balance, while a new open black kitchen creates a dramatic focal point, accentuated by the black painted beams running across the ceiling. Black stainless appliances integrate seamlessly into the blacked-out cabinetry. The show-stopper in the kitchen is this live-edge waterfall bar counter. The wood tones tie in perfectly with the ceiling throughout the space but give a modern, unexpected twist. Open shelving on either side of the window tones down the heaviness of the black cabinetry and allows for easy access to cups and mugs.

A little bit exotic and a little bit glam, the walls in this kitchen were painted in Farrow and Ball ‘Charleston Gray’ to give a calm and soft feel to the room. The San Simone quartzite worktop is bold, but in this calm room with all the dark soft colors it just seems to work, it’s got character and a bit of sparkle. Mixed with the copper, which has a gentle glint when the sun shines it creates a whole new Shaker look. When you sit at the table in this room you get a warm glow, the view, the glistening new kitchen, and the moody feel, it’s a place you want to stay and open a book and just drink in the atmosphere.
