Designing Black kitchens

At LWK Kitchens, we are still surprised by the number of people interested in a black kitchen but deterred by the thought it may be too dark, overwhelming, make a room appear smaller, or even worse, depressing! In reality, these factors need not be of concern, and black kitchen furniture has in fact been the foundation for some of our most beautiful kitchen designs to date! Black kitchens simply need designed with due thought, care and an awareness that the furniture is just one element of a kitchen design; you must also consider the floor tiles, worktop, splashback, and wall colour. It is the combination of these items that will determine whether or not you risk a black kitchen design that is too dark. At LWK Kitchens our designers use software that can adjust luminescence to match the lighting in your room. When producing your designs we can also match the floor and wall coverings in the software to those you actually intend to use.

Black Kitchen Finish Options

Black kitchen looks can differ entirely depending on whether you opt for a black gloss, matt or wood kitchen finish:-

High gloss black kitchens

More so than with any other kitchen colour, it is imperative to use high quality materials within a black high gloss kitchen. There are several different types of high gloss materials used in the manufacture of black kitchens but not all of which are offered by LWK Kitchens. We offer black gloss kitchen finishes in glass, lacquer and acrylics, but we do not supply black gloss laminate kitchens. This is because in dark colour tones this finish material simply cannot achieve the reflective quality we know our clients are looking for. Instead, the depth of reflection means any slight surface imperfections are amplified, and this can result in the dreaded ‘orange peel’ effect. To prevent this from occurring, LWK Kitchens use only the highest quality materials for our black kitchens. Our black gloss glass kitchen doors are particularly spectacular, whilst the black gloss lacquered doors exude a magnificent shine; this results from the five coats of lacquering they undergo during manufacture.

Black matt kitchens

Our black matt kitchen offerings extend to black matt glass, black matt lacquer, as well as the black satin lacquer kitchen door, new for 2015. Each of these finishes are manufactured to an extremely high standard. As a result, the black matt kitchen door’s smooth surface translates to a solid yet ultra-stylish kitchen look. Well-placed lighting and a pale décor will balance the appearance, ensuring a matt black kitchen won’t appear dark or gloomy. On the contrary, light tones should create the perfect backdrop, highlighting the dark furniture’s beauty and ensuring it draws the eye! Alternatively the black matt door’s agreeable nature allows for striking contrasts in both texture and colour. Whether a timeless black and white kitchen, or a black tone with thrilling red accents, a black matt kitchen design is sure to make a beautiful impact on the home.

Black wood kitchens

We offer a number of highly appreciable black kitchen options within our extensive wood kitchen range. A feast for the eyes, the dark colour tone beautifully accentuates the textured grain of a wood kitchen door. Whether real or wood-effect, as a kitchen’s sole finish, or in combination with other styles, our selection of black wood kitchen doors can’t fail to impress.

Black handleless kitchens

From the rich Black Oak real wood veneer, to the majestic gloss or matt black glass, all of our black kitchen finishes are available in the popular handleless kitchen style. This includes the stainless steel recessed channel option which is fitted to the furniture carcass. Alternatively, we offer the sophisticated ‘touch to open’ or ‘soft close’ kitchen door mechanisms. These require only the softest touch to trigger the door’s motion, and can be either electronically assisted or spring assisted. We also supply Hacker Kitchens unique ‘climber’ units, available for viewing on the following video clip:
