White kitchens have been en vogue the past few years, but now we’re seeing a swing in the other direction. Black is emerging as a true contender in the world of kitchen decor. Dark appliances, countertops, cabinets, and walls create a cozy and inviting space. You can go monochrome for a hyper-modern look, or add accents for a subtler effect.

These kitchens have a whimsical take on the black trend. Chalk walls can be customized with favorite quotes, reminders, or used a child’s art canvas. Graphic plates and key wallpaper have an artistic, hand drawn look that embraces creativity.
