"Black is a great accent and grounding tool for the eye. In a traditional-style kitchen, a big black island or unfitted piece of cabinetry with a black rub-through finish would act as an elegant counterpoint to the other cabinetry within the space, perhaps distressed cherry, or even crisp white," says Susan.
The color black lets the cabinetry lines speak out and is a backdrop for the other elements in the room, says Susan. And, she notes, there's nothing like a black background to make metal panel inserts, such as chicken wire or mesh, stand out. Black cabinetry can be a backdrop or a focal point like an island, a single wall or even interspersed with other colored or wood-finish cabinetry.
Before installing your kitchen cabinets, it's helpful to begin by assessing your practical needs and exploring different style options. You may have a number of kitchen gadgets that can find homes in built-in accessory drawer boxes or cutlery trays. Or you may prefer a built-in spice rack drawer, trash can pull-out, or even a custom wine cabinet.
