8 black kitchens that will inspire you to think outside the white kitchen box

Given today's modern surfaces, finishes and lighting, the idea that dark kitchens are harder to maintain is a thing of the past. Explore these black kitchens to see how the hub of the home can have a drama all of its own 

1. Glamorous entertainer's kitchen

Designer Damian Hannah specified black German glass doors and matching wrap-around side panels for this impressive kitchen. The built-in recessed handle is both functional and aesthetically pleasing.

2. Moody meets all mod cons

Matt black cabinetry sets the scene for this all-mod-cons kitchen by designer Rod Huizenga. The ends of the island are partly in left-over wood flooring and connect with the further use of wood in the adjacent lounge.

Much of the jet black cabinetry, including the display units, is internally lit or underlit with colour LEDs adding another dimension to this kitchen at night. See the original kitchen story here
