Black and white are two basic colors that make up the most classic combination of all time. It’s exquisite, dramatic, timeless, and chic. It is an ideal choice for those who do not want to keep renovating. A black and white combo can create a bold visual statement in any room you choose and it goes with many styles. Today I would like to draw your attention to black and white kitchens.
Try different styles
Black and white is the most popular scheme for modern, minimalist and Scandinavian spaces, but a monochrome kitchen in these colors is always an asset, no matter what style you choose: traditional, glamorous, art deco or whatever you like.
Add different colors and shades
Choosing black and white doesn’t mean you should only stick to them that use the darkest black and the crispest white. Change your color scheme by trying different shades of black and white. For example, go anthracite black or cream white to achieve the look you want. If you think black is too overwhelming, minimize the amount in the decor – just add a few black accents. Choose between matte and glossy finishes or mix them up for a trendy space. Try black and white patterns to make the kitchen more eye-catching.
Don’t be afraid to add a few contrasting accents like red pots, colorful dishes and natural wood to make the kitchen cozier and more inviting.
Textures make any decor more eye-catching and cool, so rock different materials in black and white to make your kitchen look more interesting. A simple whitewashed brick wall can add a stunning industrial feel to the room, and black wood makes any room more homely and cozy. Marble is a luxurious and durable material that goes well with any decor and is timeless.
Look at the size
If you think that a small kitchen should only be decorated in light shades to make it look bigger, you’re wrong: rocking black and white in the right proportions is a great idea even in the smallest of spaces. Just maximize white and minimize the amount of black. You can just add a few taps and you’re done. Shiny surfaces reflect the light and make your room look bigger than it is.
Liven up the space
To keep the kitchen alive and fresh, you can add greenery anywhere in pots. If you grow herbs and vegetables there, then it will be just the thing to add a lively touch to the kitchen.
