Kitchens go back to black

From chic charcoal to effortless ebony, be inspired by Armac Martin’s edit of the most luxurious black kitchen designs.

It’s time to go back to black in the kitchen. Opting for a noir palette brings atmosphere in abundance and is perfect for those coveting a statement look. When it comes to interiors, think of black as the sartorial option to adorn your kitchen.

Like all paints, those in the black palette have varying undertones and so first, consider whether you want to create a cool or warm aesthetic. Black paints with a cool undertone often have a hint of violet and those with a warm undertone have a hint of brown. Once you know this, it’s time to think finishes – with darker colours the finish really impacts the overall look. Matt black paints keep things feeling relaxed and intimate whilst glossy black paints add a lustrous high-shine look.

This black kitchen cabinetry (above) by the Bath Kitchen Company proves that a black kitchen can be far from dark. A classic oak floor and a statement brass finish backsplash bring plenty of warmth to the space. The cabinets painted in Lamp Black by the Little Greene Paint Company are dressed with brass hardware to punctuate the joinery and walls are kept white and bright to allow the rest of the design space to breathe.

Modern kitchens lend themselves effortlessly to a black palette. This minimal design by the Bath Kitchen Company features contemporary marble, orb pendant lights and a less is more approach to styling to let the colours and textures come into their own.

For those seeking a kitchen with drama, be inspired by this statement design from Woodale Kitchens (above and below). A modern marble backsplash leads the colour palette with black and brown hues in full focus. Cabinets painted in Onyx by Benjamin Moore, give this floor to ceiling joinery immediate presence. Paired with reeded wooden details, the cabinets create an of-the-moment two tone look and the element of wood also helps to frame other parts of the design too.⁠

The beauty of an open plan kitchen is it can confidently showcase a darker colour like black. This Petrucci Homes design (below) features a custom colour black paint for the cabinets, teamed with natural oak for an effortless contrast. Choosing to paint the beams black adds character whilst balancing the colour in a room with high ceilings.

Showcasing cabinets painted in the forever classic, Railings by Farrow and Ball, this ultra-black kitchen (below) is polished, timeless and demonstrates the quiet luxury look beautifully. Designed by The Woodworks, the space is fluid throughout with traditional brass fixtures decorating the joinery and a patterned tiled floor to tie the black and white kitchen together.

Whether you opt for a touch of black in the kitchen with a statement island and accessories or fully embrace the stylish colour scheme throughout your interior, black kitchens offer a dramatic backdrop for golden hue hardware.
