8 Ways to Use Black Countertops in Your Kitchen Design

Most homeowners shy away from using black countertops for fear of their kitchen becoming too dark and uninviting. This is no longer the case. Here are 8 ways of using black countertops that will leave you with an envy-inspiring kitchen.  

Creams and Colors

Using black countertops doesn’t mean you have to pair it with white everything to avoid the room feeling too dark. Try using cream instead and pairing it with softened versions of your favorite colors to create a warm, inviting space.

Rustic Industrial

Black and Bright

Believe it or not, black on black kitchen designs do not have to end up looking and feeling dark and depressing. If your kitchen is located in an area of your house that gets a lot of sunshine, take that opportunity to be bold with your kitchen design. Pair black flooring, cabinets and countertops with stainless steel appliances and mirrored backsplash to make that sunlight work to your advantage and create a beautiful kitchen that is sure to impress guests.

Restaurant Inspired 

When it comes to cooking, usually the older the recipe - the better the dish. Be bold by adding a fireplace to your kitchen and use black countertops, flooring, and tile work to give the space an old-world feeling.
