I can go into somebody else's house and admire their kitchen without wanting it to be MY cooking area. Someone earlier in the thread pointed out black cabinets and I can appreciate that they can be very striking and gorgeous, however it isn't something I would personally desire to have in my house. So, even if I do or do not want something for me does not mean I think it can't be lovely in another person's house.

Quote: Initially Published by Sunbather concurred. Black cabinets are an ideal example too. I have actually seen them done well in great deals of circumstances (and I have actually seen black carried out in ways I extremely much do not like too.) and my friend even has a set of black piece cabinets in his kitchen area that look striking with the method he did the remainder of the kitchen location. However black is not a cabinet color I ever go for when creating a kitchen area myself for myself. I'm simply not drawn to it in my own kitchen at all.

Here is a cooking area I designed for my next-door neighbors in a classic 90 y.o. home. (horrible image supplied by the client- no lighting, modular stainless steel kitchen hyderabad bad direct exposure). This kitchen area deals with north as well but does have two great sized windows and a skylight. Excellent brought back vintage range that really utilized to be in my home!

I simply used them as the base cabinets with open shelving for the uppers other than for a back wall of full height cabinets bookending the stainless steel fridge: broom closet; coffee station white slab counter and glass uppers; pantry and open book/wine/platter storage. (another bad picture). A full height tile wall and and a free-standing butcher block table even more lessens any perceived heaviness of the black base cabinets.
