Blасk оr White Tіlе Flооrѕ
Black Tile –While you always have the option to combine black and white tiles on your floor, I’m going to show you a few examples of how using each color on its own will affect the look of your kitchen. Installing black tiles will give your room a mysterious and sleek look and feel, while allowing your eye to be drawn to any white or natural light present in the room.
As long as you use other features to brighten up the surrounding space, such as paint and windows, you shouldn’t be to concerned about the room looking too dark. If you’re concerned that an all-black floor will look too dreary, then consider using black and white pattern combinations.
White Tіlе – White tile floors are always a smart choice. While they may take a little more effort to keep clean, they’re certainly a selection that’ll project timeless elegance. White floors brighten up a kitchen and allow you to play around with different accent colors of your choosing. Installing white tile floors alongside white walls and a white ceiling, draws the eye upward so your room looks like it has more height than it really does.
Black & White Backsplash
A backsplash is a great addition to a kitchen because of the many different patterns, colors, and styles made available to you. Adding a new backsplash is a subtle and effortless way to bring in additional texture and style to a white and black kitchen. Kitchen backsplashes undergo trends and fads, just like any other design element in the home, but black and white are two colors that are here to stay.
White and off-white kitchen cabinets are not only a safe choice, but a classy one, too. Neutrals add effortless elegance and natural brightness to a kitchen. We’re also seeing homeowners pair their white cabinets with dark wood and black accents. White cabinets allow you the flexibility to add contrast in a room by decorating your walls, floor, lights and a backsplash in hues that’ll compliment your cupboards.
You may hear the words black countertop and immediately turn up your nose, but I challenge you to give t his trend careful consideration Black granite is one of the top five color choices for homeowners installing new countertops. It’s easy to maintain and when the light hits it, the black granite countertop will sparkle and shine.
Don’t mask this style with dark cabinetry. Instead, use it as a focal point in your kitchen with white cabinets to create a modern ambiance. Add a touch of silver, and you’ll have a winning combination in today’s modern kitchen design.
Combine with Wood
You may have already noticed, but wood is one of the best accents to use for complimenting your white and black interior design. There are so many different options for incorporating wood into your scheme. A few that come to mind are your floors, ceiling, countertops, cabinets or furniture. This is one trend that won’t disappoint you in the long run, because it’s classic and enduring.
Blасk or White Fridge
One area of your kitchen you don’t want to skimp on or overlook is your appliances. Many of us assume we have to purchase stainless steel appliances or keep the outdated ones we have until they break. Well, this just isn’t true anymore.
KitchenAid recently introduced the first-ever professionally inspired Black Stainless Steel appliance finish. I don’t know about you, but I think it’s fantastic! It’ll give your kitchen a softer and warmer look that what you’re used to seeing with the shiny stainless steel. On the other hand, a white fridge will blend nicely with your white cabinets and offer a unique look.
Never underestimate the power a fresh or bold coat of paint will bring to a room. Interior designers will tell you that many homeowners don’t think to decorate and utilize unused space in their kitchen. Think out the box and determine how you may be able to add a splash, stripe or band of paint to hidden areas or spaces that are hard to reach.
A black and white kitchen isn’t for everyone, but it doesn’t have to be an all or nothing color scheme either. As you saw, there is an endless amount of possibilities for integrating black and/or white into your kitchen design. Be methodical and strategic, but also don’t forget to think outside of the box and try new ideas and combinations.
