I decided to go dark cause I'm tired of that stark all white look too. Remodeled the kitchen in a 1928 bungalow I bought and had custom walnut cabinets done with no stain just the natural wood color. It was from a couple of old trees sourced locally and the wood is beautiful! Have dark tile on the floor, white/black/brown granite counters and lavender walls. Feels warm and rich and doesn't seem dark. Used copper for my accents. Too much white initially looks great but it can be so boring for your eyes and tough to keep spotless!

Both black and white kitchen cabinets are such classics, but it seems that this year is a little bit heavier on the black option and it seems it's going to continue to be like that in the year to come. More and more people step into our showroom in search for dark cabs and, inspired by these requests, we've analyzed how to actually achieve bold statement with black kitchen cabinets in our article.
