White Kitchens have definitely had their time in the spotlight.  But if you’re ready for something else, maybe with a little more mood or drama, then follow along.  We found some of the hottest kitchen inspirations that are NOT all white.  Whether your style is modern, rustic, sophisticated or all natural, you’re definitely going to find something to love.

Dark Kitchen Cabinets

BLACK BUT NEVER BORING

When selecting all black kitchen cabinets, countertop and backsplash, just like you would in an all white room, it’s important to think about how to contrast these finishes.  We love the reflective plaster finish on the vertical surfaces, and how it adds texture next to a flat matte black panel door faces.  To add warmth and balance with the floors, a raw wood beam really adds a true element of nature.  

All Black Kitchen

If all an black kitchen isn’t your style, lighten it up with a white backsplash wall and warm wood touches.

For a super modern look, contrast black kitchen cabinets with a white stone island.  Bring the black and white look together with a zebra marble slab on the backsplash and counters and black stools.
