Black kitchen cabinets are certainly fashionable! After all, they’re black, which is pretty, eye-catching and that can do a lot for a kitchen. The fascination of many modern designers with black kitchen pieces began some years ago and has been at its highest ever since. Why is it that black is so popular? What makes black so trendy?
In a nutshell, the reason that black kitchen cabinets are so trendy is because they’re a great addition to any kitchen’s decoration. This is an extremely important factor in any design project. No matter how great your kitchen decoration is – if there’s no visual ‘punch’ to it, then there’s no visual ‘wow’ factor, and you simply won’t be able to ‘stand out’ among your peers. Even the best designed rooms in the world don’t have a ‘wow’ factor if the decor is bland and boring.
Good decorators will pay attention to kitchen design fundamentals. In fact, they’ll spend a lot of time learning about kitchen decoration basics, such as how to balance white and black in a kitchen design, or how to make a kitchen look spacious without sacrificing too much character (which is another thing that good decorators will know how to do brilliantly). They’ll also pay attention to kitchen design elements such as kitchen cabinet placement, kitchen color scheme, flooring options, lighting, fixtures and accessories. They’ll work on a detailed plan of how they want their kitchen to look, and they’ll put their ideas into action, using kitchen organizers, catalogs, photographs and software, in order to turn their vision into a reality.
When it comes to kitchen design, however, this ‘experience’ gets simplified, and that’s why most people end up choosing standard kitchen shapes. After all, most of us are more used to seeing rectangular kitchen projects with square and rectangular corners. If you’re an adventurous home improvement enthusiast, you may well be interested in trying out some unusual kitchen projects, such as turning your kitchen into a fish-shaped kitchen, or a ‘landscape’ kitchen. There’s another design element that you should consider when thinking about your kitchen project: the kitchen cabinet. Let’s take a look at some unique kitchen cabinet shapes and how they could enhance the style of your kitchen.
Most people tend to stick to rectangular and square kitchen cabinets. However, if you’re a real DIY (do-it-yourself) fan, you may well be interested in constructing odd-shaped cabinets. For instance, a triangular kitchen cabinetry project can be fun and interesting. Why not build a triangle, for example, with three main materials: the base, which is typically made from metal; the middle cabinetry, which can be made from wood or plywood; and the ‘top’, which is composed of glass or mirror materials. Once this base, middle, and top have been built, you can then finish it off with doors and windows and install any other furniture that goes with this unique kitchen cabinetry design.
Another unusual kitchen project that you can try is a kitchen with exposed brick walls. You can decorate your exposed brick kitchen in a variety of ways, but one of the most stylish ways of doing so is by painting the exposed brick the color of your choice. As an added bonus, you will also add a unique texture and character to your exposed brick kitchen cabinetry, making it a really cool looking kitchen project. If brick is not your style, you can also try using vinyl, which will look great in any color scheme! Just be sure to use non-slip flooring for your project.
Black kitchen islands are a really funky way to add some funky design to your kitchen. These islands are especially attractive when you install a very unique and interesting kitchen island design into your kitchen decor composition. When planning the island of your dream, be sure to plan it out first. Include the placement of your appliances, your cook top, and any other special considerations that you wish to include with your kitchen island design. This will help you achieve the results that you desire the most!
Are black kitchen cabinets trendy because they match my kitchen design? No, that is not necessarily true. As mentioned before, there are many different styles and colors that you can choose from in order to find the one that is perfect for your decorating needs. Just remember that when you decide to go with a particular color or design, be sure that it matches well with the other elements of your kitchen decor!
