Interior spaces, especially kitchens that feature black and white are impossible to ignore. They are versatile, bold and they stand out.

You can also consider using dark and bold cabinets, and white countertops, balanced with a more neutral backsplash or stone island. There is such a massive range of texture and decor options that encompass this colour palette and that you can choose from. In addition, there is such a huge array of furniture and lighting that you can also consider.

Use of one of the colours, or a blend of both is great for adding subtle colour to the kitchen. As such, these colours are the perfect choice for introducing colour, without going overboard. In addition, these colours are timeless and can be used without fear of them dating. We highly recommend using a light colour, such as white, to help break up the darkness.
