Dark shades and appliances are hot right now and rightfully so. Being a classic look and having the ability to adapt to just about every kitchen and color layout, makes integrating darks easier than ever. Don’t let the colors of summer and blossoming flowers distract you from the potential that dark shades could have on your kitchen!
Although not often thought as a vibrant or lively tone, we like to think of black as more of a shade that creates a relaxed and modern energy when added into your home. A simple detail such as adding black to the trim of your cabinetry will instantly create a color distinction and make them more visually appealing.
Integrating dark appliances and walls is best if you’re interested in fully adopting this trend. In order to create color balance, fusing additional supplementary dark pieces like chairs, shelving, or fixtures, allows your wall or appliance to not be isolated.
Countertops and fixtures are not only one of the more design savvy ways of implementing this trend, they also have the most practical applications as well. Dark shades on these pieces will show less water stains and general wear and tear compared to other finishes. If clean and sleek is what you desire, dark countertops is for you.
