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.

You can also make a bold, fearless statement with a black island or table to scream design! Center the structure with its vibrant shade and decorate with a pale, creamy palette around the focal point. It’ll add depth but still stay true to the refined black and white classic color scheme idea. Or if you really want to evoke some surprise and to be super eclectic and funk up the entire house, use black as the foundation color while adding white as the background and detailing. Chalkboard walls can fill the room to leave messages and everything will look nice and clean without the usual imperfections showing through the dark colors.

But even with a black and white scheme don’t be afraid to thrown in bouts of other colors. Fresh flowers add cheerfulness and fun, poppy utensils and appliances just add extra charm to a sleek, chic kitchen. And remember, even though you’ve picked black and white as your base, the decorating and designing doesn’t stop there. Do you want your kitchen to feel contemporary and modern, feminine and vintage or completely funky and eclectic? Maybe even industrial? That’s where your accessories and chosen elements come into play. Whichever theme you decide to go with, don’t fret! Black and white works with any theme and style, so choose wisely and do what makes you feel comfortable and stylish.
