Believe it or not, you don’t have to have all black and white to get a great look from your monochrome kitchen. Monochrome has been a classic for many years, and it doesn’t look like it’s going to be going out of fashion any time soon. There are plenty of ways to make your kitchen look fabulous using this timeless style, but we’ve put together 4 of our favourites.
Don’t be afraid to use wood
But it’s a monochrome kitchen, wood will look odd, right? Wrong. Wood handles on dark cabinets can add a sense of cosiness to a kitchen and stop it from looking so clinical, especially if the rest of the kitchen is white.
Inject small amounts of colourIf you want the monochrome look but want to add a part of your personality, inject some colour. You could do this in the accessories, like flowers and plates, or you could add a splashback or wall in your favourite colour like the image above.
Adding some colour helps to break up the darkness, especially if you have lots of black or grey in your kitchen.
Go opposite with handles
Another way to break up the dark colours is to add white or stainless steel handles to your cabinets. In this kitchen, the handles reflect the light beautifully and give a sleek, modern look that will never go out of style.
Dark cabinets work fantastically well in open plan kitchens like this one, as the natural daylight streams through and emphasises all the different shades.
Balance out the shades
A great way to balance out the tones in a monochrome kitchen is to use black cabinets with white worktops. The kitchen to the right does this well, but if you don’t want to go for the crystal-clear white look you could get some white marble effect or stone style worktops.
