Black is a safe color to use in your kitchen, no matter what the pother colors are. You need to be careful, though, about using too much black. It can make your kitchen feel dark and gloomy. Now, what I like about black kitchen cabinets is the fact when used correctly they add amazing depth and contrast. For example, in the above kitchen we have a nice, beige counter that ahs a reflective surface to accentuate natural light, but at the same time the black kitchen cabinets add a nice balance. This ends up feeling like an open, balanced, and accessible kitchen that is easy on the eyes.
