Embracing darkness: The beauty of the black kitchen

Posted by Segura on May 28, 2017

Last but certainly not least, your wall space – the other way of flaunting black in your kitchen. And it’s definitely one of the easier ways as well, seeing how quick it is to repaint a wall should you not be happy with your colour choice. 

Like a kitchen island, a black wall can become a great focal point. To stop it from looking like a black hole, add different colours and textures (like photographs, natural wood shelving, or accessory pieces that show of your personal style). 

Another great idea is chalkboard paint, which affords you the opportunity to flaunt a black wall that can be edited (with chalk, obviously) as many times as you like! We love the idea of recipes, shopping lists and motivational quotations being scribbled onto a black kitchen wall!

In the end, approach that black kitchen like you would any other colour: start out with small doses to determine whether it works for you, see if it really complements your existing space and style, and enjoy. After all, interior design (especially on a DIY basis) is meant to be fun!
