A black and white color palette plays out in different ways throughout this kitchen, from the black cabinetry to the mottled black and white of the countertop to the white brick tile of the walls. Floating shelves are used here to great effect offering both storage and a curated design moment.
Contemporary Black and White Kitchen with Black Island
The island in the new kitchen at the Victorian home that Leanne and Steve are updating together, the kitchen used to be dark and small but they opened it up to create a bright and airy space, as seen on Restored by the Fords.
The homeowner wanted a modern bistro-inspired kitchen, which was achieved by thoughtful details, such as the subway tile inside the back of the upper cabinets. The two-toned cabinetry creates a striking contrast, while hardwood floors add warmth to the space. Built-in stainless steel appliances add to the contemporary feel of the space.
Pink Kitchen Island Complete With Chic Black Barstools
In addition to stainless appliances, plenty of cabinets and a breakfast nook, the kitchen comes with an eat-in island. Four barstools provide comfortable seating and complement the black-and-pink color scheme.
The unique, two-tiered island provides casual seating for six in the kitchen of this sleek, modern home. One the first level, four barstools rest a counter-height, providing counter space on one side and seating on the other. On the lower level of the feature, an extension table adds two more chairs for the homeowners' and their guests.
