The homeowners wanted a texture-rich space with a simple feel, so designers set out to achieve that goal by using cabinets that were a mix of wood and back painted glass. Black granite was added to the countertops, backsplash and range hood. This creates a sleek, streamlined design for the heart of this sophisticated home.
This project is all about classic elements with pops of surprises. Black and white is set as the foundational pallet, with bold color and pieces accenting the space, leaving your senses feeling excited and happy.
The black-and-white color scheme creates a clean, sophisticated look in this open floor plan kitchen. Floor-to-ceiling sleek black cabinets provide tons of storage, while a large island is the perfect spot for the whole family to gather for meals.
Stylish, Elegant, Functional Midcentury Modern Kitchen
This sleek, black kitchen is a perfectly elegant, stylish and functional Midcentury Modern space. The space has plenty of functional elements, for example the kitchen island and open shelving, whose clean lines contribute to the Midcentury Modern design of the space, while elements such as the gold-lined pendant lights help to add glamour and pizzaz.
“Using black for interiors can be scary as it’s usually associated with being dark or depressing,” says designer Jodie Rosen. Her advice: “Using hits of black as an accent is a great way to elevate a space and emphasize elements of the design. In this case, we used black on the trim around the range to make the area a focal point and then repeated the black in the oversized fixtures, stools, and the metal detailing on the island.”
Wood support beam and a classic chandelier paired with a mix of black and white cabinets make this a warm, classic space. The white cabinets provide a highlight feature, while the upper and lower cabinetry lights create the perfect ambiance. The large island with marble countertop provides plenty of space to work and eat.
Modern Black-and-White Kitchen with Kitchen Island and Stainless Steel Appliances
Using a simple and subdued color scheme can help a smaller space look expansive. Here, blacks, whites and neutrals work together to create a kitchen that looks both modern and casual. The island, complete with sink, serves as both a prep area and a perfect spot to enjoy a cup of coffee or a meal.
"U"-Shaped Kitchen Provides Counter Space and Casual Seating to the Home
The "U"-shaped kitchen cabinets provide plenty of counter space while giving definition to the kitchen space, separating it from the rest of the first floor. The barstools give the space a casual dining option but are also in close proximity to the dining space, so they could also serve as an extension of the home's dining area.
Designer Angelica Henry used a low maintenance approach and a sleek, stylish aesthetic when designing this black, white and stainless steel kitchen. Miele appliances, linear overhead lighting, black laminate cabinets, white Silestone countertops, a glass backsplash and a stainless steel soffit all help to define its intended architectural character.
