If you are a daring, original, modern person and appreciate elegant and sophisticated surroundings, then the black kitchen was made for you. The color, sober and neutral, can be used in combination with other colors, or even used alone in the environment. Check out today's post how to assemble and decorate a black kitchen without mistakes, be it big, small or planned.
Caring for a Black Kitchen
The main care you should take when assembling and decorating a kitchen with black color is in relation to the luminosity and the size of the space. Black has the peculiarity of absorbing light, thus reducing the sensation of space.
But it's not because you do not have a large, well-lit kitchen that you can not use color in the project. To escape from this problem the solution is to seek light. If your kitchen has the privilege of owning windows, then let natural light come in. Otherwise, invest in artificial lighting, with directional lights and / or recessed lighting.
Another interesting trick to using black without reducing too much space is by painting the walls in white and opting for a light colored floor.
Color combinations for the black kitchen
Black is a neutral color that fits in well with all other colors. But each combination expresses a different feel and style. A black kitchen with white accents is classic and never goes out of style. This is also the perfect match for anyone who is afraid of trying bolder colors.
The use of black with metallic elements, such as stainless steel or silver, refers to a modern and very contemporary industrial style. A touch of gray and the kitchen becomes even more sober and elegant, however, this type of combination can generate excessively cold. The tip is to use balance and common sense to know how to measure colors in the right way. When in doubt, combine with black just the metallic of the appliances.
Another possible combination to be made with the black color is by blending it with the wood. This is the mix of colors and texture ideal for those who want a warm, cozy, slightly rustic environment without giving up modernity and elegance. For a more noble and formal environment, invest in dark woods, to create a more youthful and modern kitchen, light wood shades such as pinus, for example, are the best option.
The mix between black and vibrant colors is great for those who want to create a clean, informal, striking, modern and full of personality. The most interesting options are yellow gold, blue, pulling for turquoise or celestial, magenta and red.
Finally, you can choose to use only black, betting now on a brighter tone, sometimes in a matte tone.
Psychological effect of black color
If you want to invest in a black kitchen you have to abandon, if you have that belief, that black is the color of mourning, depression and death. This is a cultural view attributed to Western thought. To get an idea, in China, for example, the color black represents confidence, while for the Egyptians black is the color of rebirth.
In psychology, black is the color of power, occultism, sophistication, independence, prestige, willpower and sensuality. Nobody wears black "unintentionally," whether in fashion or decoration. It is natural that color be used with awareness, starting with people who know very well what they want and want to express it to the world.
