18 Impossibly Chic Black Kitchen Cabinets

By Tim / February 11, 2017

Chic black kitchen cabinets are currently in style and they bring an elegant and dramatic feel to any kitchen.  As more and more kitchens are utilizing black as a primary color in their kitchen, we get a varied look at black kitchen cabinets.  

While you will find black kitchen cabinets in all styles of kitchens, currently the two most prominent styles to feature these cabinets are contemporary and traditional.  Let's take a look at examples of the two styles.   

Contemporary Chic Black Kitchen Cabinets 

Contemporary kitchen designs work well with black cabinets.  All the kitchens in this contemporary category feature smooth straight cabinet lines and pair well with stainless steel appliances, hanging light features and contrasting countertops & barstools. 

This kitchen features a double oven and teardrop pendent lights with a stainless steal oven hood and refrigerator.  Pairing the black kitchen cabinets with black swivel barstools really finishes off the look.  

The tin ceiling and industrial lighting in this kitchen mix well with the black cabinets to finish off a balanced industrial look.

Traditional Chic Black Kitchen Cabinents

Black kitchen cabinets  can also work well with more traditional kitchen looks.  Adding custom appliances, countertops and lighting bring the traditional look together.  

In traditional kitchens, black cabinets pair best with a lighter backsplash and lighter white painted walls. ​

This kitchen features a custom made stove top with gold feature trim and knobs.

Black kitchen cabinets with white cupboards, blue subway tile and a stainless steel oven hood.
