Kitchen Design Trends: Black is the New White

There was a time when wood tones and white were the popular color choices for kitchen cabinets and kitchens in general. But like all things interior design-related, kitchens go through trend cycles every few years and colors have gotten bolder and more dramatic.

If you’re considering an update for your kitchen, black just may be the new white. There’s no denying that black kitchens can have a real wow factor if done right. Untraditional and unique, black kitchens are becoming a fashion statement, and proving to be a noteworthy kitchen color in 2016. Here, we’re sharing a few of our favorite black kitchens to get you inspired.
