Designing & Decorating A Black and White Kitchen

Black and white is style at its absolute finest. This color combination is the ultimate form of timeless, elegant and bold design skills. And when the combo is in the kitchen, you get a theme that is not only chic and functional but fashionable and fun to decorate with!

Let’s take a look at some beautifully decorated and designed black and white kitchens and we’ll see how and what makes them work!

White, crisp cabinets with black, outstanding counter tops not only compliment each other but they also truly enhance each other. Remember they’re opposites and opposites do, in fact, attract! The contrasting shades pop no matter where they’re placed or how they’re balanced in the room. And, let’s not forget that creating a white foundation opens up the room to light and space. With small black details defining every sharp edge and smooth line, there’s no cook in the world that wouldn’t want to spend a day creating yummy new meals inside.


Espresso Set with Beautiful Square Cups

If you challenge a creative mind to something, it will always come up with some interesting ideas and solutions to anything. In this case the designer proved really ingenious when they came up with the idea of designing a special Espresso Set with Beautiful Square Cups. Everything about this set is special and this makes it so original and unique. First of all, the six espresso cups included in the set are square in shape and have no handles. Then they have a special place on top where to put the teaspoon you use to mix the sugar in the coffee. If you place the spoon there, you make sure you can find it all the time and not misplace it.

The spoons are also square, almost flat and are made of metal, so I would advise you to be careful when you want to warm up the espresso in the microwave oven. But this is not all: the wooden tray the espresso set sits on is made especially for this set and has detachable coasters, also made of wood. They simply come out from the tray and you can use them on the table. The designer , Fellina Sok-Cham , made this set in 2008 from bamboo and now you can order it for $65.

Add elegance to your kitchen with granite countertops

Granite countertops are not only beautiful and elegant but also very functional. It’s why they are so popular in kitchens and bathrooms. Granite is a strong and hard-wearing material and it comes deep inside Earth. It starts as liquid magma and it can up to millions of years for the rock to form. Of course, this is the case of natural granite but there are artificial replacements as well.

Because of its durability, granite is used for structures that need to last longer such as tombstones and countertops. The granite is extracted from a quarry, cut and then sanded and polished. After adding any details and customizing it, the granite countertop is installed in our kitchen. You might not realize it, but you have a piece of history in your home.

What’s the best flooring for a kitchen?
