Black Kitchens: Subtle, Serene and Sexy

Remember in high school when you saved up for the perfect pair of black jeans and you wore them so much that they faded to gray? And the first suit I ever bought was black wool. It was classic and sleek and made me feel a little more handsome and way cooler than I actually was.

Check out the Puustelli kitchen above. It’s done in a black slab cabinet with dark walls. The black is punctuated by the stainless of the appliances. The red carpet breaks up all the dark tones and adds a punch of color.

Black is classic. Everyone looks good in it, even your uncle who’s rumored to be a mafia don. Seriously we just can’t get enough of it.

It’s the same with black kitchens (minus the fade to gray).

This Puustelli kitchen makes the cabinets the star of the space. All appliances are fully integrated and virtually invisible to guests. The gray walls lighten the overall vibe. Dark accents like the bowl and Iittala Sarpeneva pot keep the color integrity of the room.

White kitchens have been the go-to for a long time. It’s pretty classic and clean in its looks.

It’s also very safe.

There is nothing daring about doing what everyone else has done for millennia.

The design of the Puustelli kitchen above is enhanced by the warm tan back splash and leather chairs. The rug has some dark elements in it and unify the over all look of the space.

Besides the cost of the home, a kitchen is probably the most significant investment you’ll make in your home. You want to get it right. When I look at a space, I think about styles that have a long runway and won’t tap out and looked dated after only a few years. Right now I’m all about black kitchens.
