As much as I love the all-white kitchen (you know, the ones that have dominated Pinterest and Instagram for the past 7+ years) there’s something so chic and timeless about a black kitchen. While the color may be intimidating at first, it can, when done right, be as sophisticated and equally swoon-worthy as the more traditional white kitchen.

Scroll down for some black kitchens that are giving me plenty of inspiration. Hopefully they’ll give you some too!

I think the success of a black kitchen is all about finding the right balance between dark and light elements. All of the kitchens shown above have achieved a light and bright feeling through the use of white accents (walls, countertops, backspash), light floors, high ceilings and lots of natural light.

I have an affinity for black, so I suspect I’m a little biased. But I think black kitchens could give the classic white kitchen a run for it’s money!

What do you think, could you go with black cabinets?
