A scullery is like a mud room for a kitchen; sometimes we design these areas as a true working kitchen. This scullery functions as a pantry, storage area, baking counter and supplement to the butler's pantry. The beautiful brass accents look fantastic with the black cabinetry, white subway tile and quartz counter-tops! Meyer Design

If you’re not afraid to be a little bit daring, a black kitchen might just be for you. At once chic, sophisticated and elegant, black is a stunning yet neutral shade that can be taken in a number of directions. Whether you love traditional kitchens or want a more modern look, read on to discover how to incorporate this dark and moody hue into your home.

1. Parisian Chic

Everyone else is going with white, but black kitchen cabinets are so much more distinctive. To nail a turn-of-the-century Parisian look, pair them with creamy marble countertops and gold hardware.

2. Warming Wood

Going with a black color scheme doesn’t mean everything in your kitchen has to be monochrome. To warm things up, contrast a wooden kitchen island with black cabinets, or use butcher block for your countertops.

3. Black Kitchen Faucets

Modern farmhouse style isn’t just about using plenty of white. Nail this elegant look with matte black kitchen faucets and a pearly white apron sink.

4. Bring in the Light

Black kitchens look best when there’s plenty of natural light shining in, so if you must have curtains, opt for Roman shades that can be pulled all the way up. Crisp, white walls also work well to reflect the light.

5. Black Kitchen Table

If you’re looking to upgrade your kitchen table, think beyond traditional wood tones. A black kitchen table paired with brown wooden chairs can look beautiful — particularly with a rich red table runner.

6. Black and White Accessories

Even if you’ve already got a white kitchen, taking things just a little bit closer to the dark side is simply a matter of accessorizing. Opt for a black and white striped rug, ebony hand towels and ceramic canisters for dry goods.

7. Contemporary Lighting

Another way to add some character to your cooking space is with statement-making black pendant light fixtures. Hang them above your kitchen island for a dramatic look.

8. White Subway Tile

White subway tile is having a moment, but particularly in a black kitchen, it really works. Go for a glossy backsplash, which will pop nicely against dark cabinetry and brighten up the space.
