From the point of view of physics, the color black can not be called a color, as it is rather… lack of it. But in terms of interior design, black is one of the most important, powerful and at the same time ambiguous elements in the palette. Let’s find out what the permissible dose of it’s use and how to design the interior of a black kitchen, and kitchen furniture in color wenge, dark walnut, etc.
Features of interaction with the space
More suitable for: large and bright spaces, men’s stag kitchens as well as kitchens in Scandinavian style, art Deco, hi-tech, industrial, contemporary and minimalism (pictured).
Positive properties: balances all the colors in the spectrum and, at the same time, emphasizes on the principle of contrast. Nature itself has used a combination of black with bright colors for color threat of bees, wasps, and tigers, and people – to create attention-grabbing road and warning signs. On black background it all makes a clear line. In addition, this color goes well with all colors of the rainbow because of its neutrality, but also looks great with chrome, steel and black appliance surfaces, which in the kitchen is always a lot.There is another unique property – it can visually zoom out objects or surfaces. So, black ceiling in the kitchen, oddly enough, does not seem to be low, and if on three walls pokleit Wallpaper white and one black, the kitchen even in a small building will become visually wider and larger.
And still designers use black color when you want to add to the interior a note of glamour, luxury and elegance. Keep in mind that sophisticated it seems only in moderation, and in the big – looks scary. The photo below shows a perfect example of black kitchen design in art Deco style.

And if you think that the kitchen is the black color will be less dirty, then we hasten to reassure you: on dark surfaces, for example, on the floor or the apron in the color wenge, fatty plaque, dust, crumbs and dirt are not less noticeable than on a light surface, and maybe even more.
If you are ready to regularly clean the fronts and apron, avoid frosted facades, and not less easily soiled glossy;
If you do decide on a black apron, let it be ceramic or stone without gloss;
Black floors are especially soiled. If you really want, it is better to lay on his “checkerboard” tile or tile with black accents as, for example, in this combined kitchen in Moscow Khrushchev in the photo below.
