So then, what are some of the things about a black kitchen that may be a con? What is something that people may not tell you until it is too late? Well, one thing to truly consider is flooring.
Now while a black tone floor can look ultra luxe and chic, the clean up aspect of it, is not. Black hue floors are some of the toughest flooring options to maintain a “clean” look. While of course, if you regularly scrub your floors they will be fresh and fab. However, what we are saying is that such floors easily show dust, dirt, etc. So then, in your quest for a spotless looking kitchen, you may drive yourself a tad bit crazy attempting to keep spotless appearance.
Nevertheless, if that small cleaning detail does not alarm you, then fire away when incorporating them into your kitchen design aesthetic. Many find that uniformity far outweighs maintenance. Plus, black on black is dramatically glam and if you choose to go that way, you will certainly make a strong visual statement.
Furthermore, being a color completely absent of visible light, some may find a black kitchen to be a little “moody.” While black does have a very professional appearance, the tone itself can feel “depressing” to some after awhile. However, if you find black does not affect you negatively in any way then you should have no issue at all embracing this dark representation.
Lastly, a person may want to consider future buyers, IF they ever plan on selling their home after such a design change. While no doubt, there is probably some who would pay top dollar for a home with a black kitchen; the fact remains is that it may not be everyone’s cup of tea. The majority of kitchen lovers still prefer a lighter tone kitchen. Therefore, just something to keep in mind while you design the kitchen of your dreams!
