The Options: Black or White

Black or White

Option 1: Shelter | Option 2: Lonny

The age-old kitchen cabinet question (“light or dark?”) isn’t quite as limited as it once was. These days we’re seeing anything from lacquered red cabinet doors to blue on top, gray on the bottom. That said, I will always respond well to the classics – Black and white.

Option 1: There’s no denying that black kitchen cabinets command a certain amount of attention. The rich color often has the ability to make standard cabinets look like built-in pieces of furniture, upping the sophistication ante by quite a bit. Whether you go with silver hardware or brass, a black kitchen is going to be a major interior focal point.

Option 2: On the other hand, white kitchens are incredibly sleek and pristine. My mom and I were chatting just the other day about how easily a white kitchen go sterile though. To combat this effect, I’d suggest taking a lesson from the inspiration image above – Open shelving and a contrasting counter top color break up all of that crisp white, plus fresh flowers and fruit make it feel homey and inviting.
