A black kitchen constitutes a completely new trend, which is the opposite of Scandinavian white. In this case, instead of bright colors and pure white, the dominating colors are black, burgundy, navy blue, and green. What can be combined with black to avoid the effect of heaviness and overwhelming? How to choose the perfect accessories? What should one remember when deciding for a kitchen with black furniture? Below are some inspirations for kitchen splashbacks.
Black matt - the end of the glossy era
Until now, the most frequently chosen kitchen furniture included a glossy finish. The advantage of matt fronts consists in the fact that fingerprints and dirt are less visible on them. Black matt introduces an element of freshness and elegance, but it's worth juxtaposing it with a shiny detail, such as glass kitchen splashback.

This kitchen splashback fits well with current trends - the black is juxtaposed with a burgundy floral motif. It can be used both as a fashionable detail as well as a protective element if it is placed behind a stovetop or sink.
Color experiments - place your bet on a vivid color
When deciding for a black kitchen one does not have to be limited to one leading color. Monochromatic compositions are elegant, but require more space to avoid the feeling of overwhelming. In smaller kitchens it is worth introducing a bold, colorful detail - whether it is a glass splashbacks, or a glass chopping board:

Black kitchen furniture looks best accompanied by kitchen splashbacks with elements of vivid red, expressive purple, as well as fresh green or turquoise. You can also find other accessories in these colors - knives, glass panels, a dish rack, or coasters.
Brick - a loft accent
Having a large space at your disposal, you can easily try a kitchen in a loft style. Black combined with bricks is raw, but at the same time elegant. A large space means that one does not have to be limited when selecting accessories. For a kitchen in the loft style we suggest glass splashbacks presenting a brick texture or brick buildings:

Black marble - tradition and modernity
Marble, like brick, seems heavy and overwhelming. Marble stairs are most often found in luxury villas and palaces. No wonder, both styles require a lot of space. Fortunately, in the concept of an all-in-black kitchen, one can settle for such marble accessories as glass panels for the kitchen, or floor tiles. Kitchen panels in shades of black and white fit this style:

A black kitchen is a challenge. It constitutes a counterweight to the lightness of Scandinavian kitchens. By design, black interiors are more massive, but this heaviness can be reduced by properly selected accessories. There is a reason why black kitchens are now the most popular interior design trend and there is no indication that this will change. If you like playing with the latest trends, it's the perfect time to create a unique and fashionable kitchen.
