Black is a color that always match with any colort, but it has to be used with care. Since cabinets can take up 70 to 80 percent of the visible kitchen surfaces, you want to take care in what you mix with those cabinets to avoid having the black dominate the entire setting. At times you may decide to simply use it as a contrasting element, and not the primary color used in the room.

Black and White Combination:

If you are interested in using lighter color, the use of white color is great idea. The approach in this case is to have just the two colors balance one another, and can create the focal points that you want to feature. Black for the cabinets combined with white wall and countertops is a good balance, and you can continue that balance by the use of both black and white appliances, or the occasional use of white kitchen cabinets in select spots. One approach to this is to use a large checkerboard pattern in the kitchen flooring, or similarly to do the same with the wall tile or backsplash.

Black Cabinets in Traditional Kitchens:

If you want to use black kitchen cabinets, it's not necessary that you use black independently for your cabinets. A great idea is to use the black to create a focal point, say for an island in the kitchen, and then to use a more traditional hardwood cabinet for the remaining storage in the kitchen. This takes a somewhat more traditional kitchen setting, but adds a slight contemporary touch to the decor.

Black Kitchen Cabinets can make a real impression. One other advantage is that they are often not as expensive as other hardwood cabinets, since the quality of the wood grain is not as critical since they are either painted or laminated. Almost all the major cabinet manufacturers carry some black cabinets, and you can find them at the major home improvement stores as well.
