The five most important reasons to choose black kitchens

Black kitchen cabinets design are indeed in fashion. Who is not impressed by a black kitchen? It gives the impression that any dish you cook in these kitchens will be haute cuisine, worthy of any restaurant with several Michelin stars. Halfway between classic and sophisticated, a black kitchen will delight anyone in love with elegance and beauty.



Now, surely more than one will wonder if having a black kitchen at home is practical. Suppose it will not be very difficult to keep it always clean and even if, in the current space of your home, a new kitchen in black tones of new work could fit.

We will solve all these doubts and some more below. We will analyze everything you need to know about black kitchens through the five most important aspects of this type of kitchen.




The most important characteristic of a black kitchen (and what will attract your attention the most) is the elegant and sophisticated touch they bring to your home. There is no rival to a kitchen in black tones.

Many times we talk about designer kitchens, and, possibly, in our imagination, the typical image of a pristine, minimalist and modern white kitchen is formed. Now, are black kitchens also designer kitchens? To answer this question, look around you, and you will see that the colour black is present in many more designs than white, whether for clothes, electronic devices, cars, etc.

In the event that you decide on a completely black kitchen, you should also think about the idea of ​​using black appliances. Contrary to what it might seem, black appliances should not be a problem. Today they can be found at any provider without the need to be specialized in the subject.

A 100% black kitchen is a kitchen for all those who feel attracted to adventure and, in a certain way, are different from the vast majority. If you are not made to follow social conventions, do not doubt that a black kitchen will perfectly represent your way of being.





Imagine a very hot summer day. Also, imagine you have to go outside at noon in full sun. What colour of clothes would you wear? Not the colour black.

Indeed, the colour black absorbs lighter than the lighter colours; therefore, in summer, we get hotter if we wear black clothes. This comparison does not mean that if you decide on a black kitchen, it is hotter than a white kitchen. It needs more lighting because the light rays are reflected in less quantity than in a kitchen with lighter tones.

So lighting in black kitchens is a problem? Not. If your kitchen has a good layout and you get plenty of natural light during the day, your black kitchen will look great without turning on a single light bulb. If, on the contrary, there is not much natural lighting in your kitchen, you should project a good system of artificial lighting in a general way on all the elements of your black kitchen.

There isn't much to worry about lighting in black kitchens when you put yourself in the hands of kitchen design professionals. This aspect of black kitchens is so important that it is a very good option to put our ideas aside and see what solutions kitchen lighting specialists can offer us.

We leave you an article discussing what lighting is right for your kitchen.





Together hand in hand, lighting and space could go within the most important aspects of black kitchens. Both are the most determining factors in creating a different and elegant environment.

It is true that, with few exceptions, our kitchen design professionals only recommend assembling black kitchens in large open rooms. If your kitchen space isn't big enough, a kitchen with black cabinets, countertops, and appliances will appear even smaller.

In any case, from COECO, we recommend that the best layouts for black kitchens be the type of open kitchen and even an American-style kitchen. This type of kitchen provides the necessary space for the colour black to be the protagonist of the kitchen without the need to overwhelm our vision of it.

In order not to miss a single detail about open and American kitchens, we recommend that you take a look at our previous post in which we talked about the five reasons that will make you decide on an American kitchen and an open or closed kitchen: advantages and disadvantages.




Continuing with the line of the previous point, the best option to create a visually attractive environment in your black kitchen would be to combine the kitchen elements with different colours and textures beyond dark tones.

If your space is not large enough for a black kitchen to look good, we recommend combining and mixing the elements in black tones with others in lighter colours or with a different texture. You can create the necessary depth for your black kitchen by generating a little contrast.

Either with some details or with the appliances, this mix of colours and textures can give your black kitchen an even more elegant and sophisticated touch. Black is a versatile colour capable of harmonizing and fitting in perfectly with other materials such as steel or wood. Using wood, your black kitchen will have a more rustic touch without losing its style. On the other hand, steel gives black kitchens a more industrial and modern tone.

Another of the most used combinations in black kitchens would be traditional tiles and tiles. In a black kitchen, these elements work perfectly if the idea is to create a traditional environment with an elegant and modern air. These kitchens are not in high demand, but they are still a good option.

Already in a lesser amount of use, you can find black marble countertops or walls with slate tiles. Both are dark-coloured items that would fit perfectly within a black kitchen.





There is a theory that the colour black is dirtier than the others. But is that true? Are there colours dirtier or cleaner than others? Is it a matter of our visual perception?

The fairest thing would be to say that, in the colour black, dirt stands out more than in other colours. It would also be safe to say that the kitchen is, or should be, the cleanest place in a house. From COECO, we would like to mention the importance of cleaning kitchens. There is a whole microscopic universe that we cannot see with the naked eye, but that can be quite dangerous for humans in some cases. To go deeper into this topic, look at our previous post on ecological kitchens to discover the current cleaning methods without synthetic chemicals.

Many people do not decide on a black kitchen due to the inconvenience of dirt. But the reality is that a black kitchen is just as dirty as a white or wooden kitchen. The important thing is that we always maintain pristine cleanliness after using our kitchens, whatever our design, colours and materials.

These have been the most important aspects of black kitchens. Surely we have left something or other behind on the way, but if you have come this far, possibly now, you get a more complete idea than before of what a black kitchen means and everything you need to know about them.

And here is our post on the most important aspects of black kitchens. We hope we have helped you decide on this type of kitchen for new construction or renovating your current kitchen.
