Stunning and Sophisticated: Dark Kitchen Design Ideas

Swathed in shades of black, navy blue, and charcoal grey, a dark kitchen design promises to create a unique and stylish space in your home. From neutral hues to bespoke fixtures, this stunning design idea is gaining more and more popularity, owing to its sophistication and minimalism.

Kube is delighted to present a kitchen modelled along this distinctive theme, for a client who wanted an understated design with an open floor plan. While the kitchen and dining areas possess the aesthetics of a dark kitchen, a striking balance is attained through the integration of this into a house with neutral walls.

A distinguishing quality of a dark kitchen is its use of statement colours with grey or black undertones. This was achieved through the incorporation of a magnificent feature splashback in metallic grey, with a solid, brick-like pattern. Panels and cabinetry in the same shade go into crafting a picture of artistic harmony.

Given the neutral flooring of the house, a contrast was achieved in the kitchen with chunky worktops in Silestone Calacatta Gold. Besides being easy to maintain and durable, this feature has a polished, sleek finish. Handleless cabinetry achieves a neat, organised appearance of the space.

In order to give this space the look and feel of a modular kitchen, measures were taken to provide savvy storage solutions. A passageway leading into the storage room with cabinets bears testimony to the practicability and efficiency of the design.

As a well-equipped contemporary kitchen, this model was fitted with state-of-the-art appliances, such as Miele Downdraft Induction Hob, Neff Coffee Machine and Quooker’s Boiling Water Tap. The finishes used for the doors are Nolte Matrix Art and Manhattan Limed Moor Oak Door, both retaining the subtle grey hues suited to a dark kitchen.

Another chic storage facility in the alcove is a Liebherr Wine Cabinet. A built-in wine rack with modified recesses for both bottles and glasses, this lends the dark kitchen design a distinct character.
