Black-and-White Loft Kitchen with Island and Column
Raw steel is used for the backsplash and island in a loft's open kitchen. The backsplash is lit by LED lights for a halo-like effect, and the island has shelving on both sides in the black-and-white kitchen. The project by Desai Chia Architecture won a 2018 AIA Institute Honor Award for interior architecture.
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 kitchen, which won First Place in large kitchen category at NKBA Ontario Design Awards in 2013, uses an L-shaped floor plan and T-configured center island to maximize space, and to create a sleek, masculine look.
Black cabinets, island and dining table bring dramatic flair to the bright white walls and marble floors in this open floor plan kitchen. Gold pendant lights bring a touch of metallic over the sleek, built-in dining table, and the entire space opens up to the living room, making it perfect for entertaining.
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.
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.
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.
Black countertops provide striking contrast against fresh white cabinets in this transitional kitchen. Black high-gloss stools with red upholstery create a spot for casual dining while adding a bold splash of color to the space.
The studio's kitchen is partly concealed, allowing the living and dining areas to take centerstage. However, the small kitchen won't be upstaged. Glass-front cabinets, a bold backsplash and a colorful rug keep the space feeling fresh and lively.
