Black Kitchen cabinets

Are black kitchen is the new white? For many, black is the new white when it comes to kitchen cabinets. Being one of the most popular kitchen design trends these days, black kitchen cabinets are a great fit for nearly any kitchen design.


While this trend has long been seen in Scandinavian design, in the U.S. there has been a recent movement towards this style. Whether you are drawn to modern design or more of a farmhouse style, black cabinets are elegant yet allow for bold contrasts. 

According to Architectural Digest, black has been steadily increasing in popularity since 2015 and is now the new “it” color for cabinetry. Offering a level of unique sophistication, modern black kitchen cabinets are highly versatile and mesh with a wide range of colors, finishes, and materials.

Black kitchen cabinets, even though they have become increasingly popular lately, still stand out from light kitchen finishes. It is possible to create a very striking, unique, and modern kitchen with black cabinets when they are done correctly. Black cabinets look striking and fashionable is just one of the many reasons you might want to choose them for your new kitchen. Here are some examples of what black kitchen cabinets can do for your home:

  • They can give your home a very chic feel
  • Your property’s resale value can be enhanced by them
  • Unlike white cabinets, they don’t show dirt as much
  • Children and pets can still be around them
  • By combining them with lighter colors, they can give a room a sense of depth and contrast

Benefits of Black Kitchen Cabinets

Black cabinets are associated with a feeling of luxury. When you walk into a kitchen that showcases beautifully crafted black cabinetry, it immediately catches your attention. When you invest in custom black cabinets, you achieve a new depth to your kitchen and create a certain mood. Depending on how you style your kitchen, that mood may be cozy, inviting, or intimate.

  • Black cabinets complement a variety of styles. Whether you love minimalist kitchens or prefer more of a chic look, black cabinetry ticks all the boxes.
  • Black goes with virtually every accompanying appliance, hardware, or decor, especially modern design aesthetics.
  • This color of black kitchen cabinets is dramatic yet doesn’t show dirt as easily as light-colored kitchen cabinets.
  • With black cabinetry, anything that contrasts the dark cabinets will pop, making accent features more vibrant.


Whether your goal is to create a dramatic backdrop or add a dose of sophistication to your home, modern black kitchen cabinets are the perfect solution.

How to Create Balance with Black Kitchen Cabinets

It is important to remember that too much black can be overpowering, so make sure to balance it out with features like brass or silver handles and lighter colors elsewhere. A well-done black shaker cabinet can seem straight out of an interior design magazine. For example, you can keep a sense of light and contrast in the kitchen by pairing black cabinetry with light oak shelving, a white subway tile backsplash, and light marble or granite countertops.

Here are other ideas to create balance when choosing black cabinets:

  1. Add brass hardware to dress them up
  2. Topped with butcher block countertops.
  3. Combine black appliances to create a cohesive look.
  4. Consider a patterned backsplash
  5. Keep black to the lower cabinets
  6. Add a little gold to the mix
  7. Lighten the mood with glass-front kitchen cabinets
  8. Add some warmth to your decor with copper details
  9. Take the plunge with an all-black kitchen
  10. Couple black kitchen cabinets with black or white marble
  11. A modern chandelier in an industrial style to add an artistic touch

With some of these design details you’ll want to paint it black like Mick Jagger!
