Current kitchen trends are moving away from classic white to more expressive colour choices, with black proving to be a popular option. Black may sound daunting but, done correctly, it can be both striking and sophisticated.
This townhouse kitchen received a much-needed update. The bold use of black cabinetry creates interest and drama. Yet the off-white quartz countertops and soft grey wall colour ensures that the black does not overwhelm the space. Wooden flooring, a bamboo bar counter and rose gold handles warm the look. Contemporary concrete and metal pendant lights, complete the transformation.
A vast improvement on the dated and unappealing kitchen, heavily lit with fluorescent lighting. By removing a couple of internal walls and doors, the previously dark, enclosed kitchen was converted into an highly practical yet airy, open-plan entertainment space, with effortless flow to the dining and living room.
