Design Inspiration: Black Kitchen Islands

When we started thinking about color themes for the kitchen, a part of me wanted to go bold and expected. I was drawn to moody, sophisticated black cabinetry, and the thought of covering up all the ugly stains and imperfections on our old doors and drawers really inspired me.

But in the end, I decided against it. Knowing that we’ll get a ton of sunlight from the big living room windows, I didn’t want all the black to swallow up the room. I was also concerned about how often they would need touch-ups and if they would easily attract dust or fingerprints.

I’ll just admire these kitchens on Pinterest for now instead!
