Black on Black – Modern Masculine Kitchen | CCMI Kitchen Specialists

Black on Black

There are still many people that think of the kitchen as a woman’s domain, but nothing could be further from the truth!  We all know men that are passionate about cooking and there is nothing frilly or girly about that… so why should the kitchen be any different?!!

This black on black kitchen is the epitome of a modern masculine space.

Cabinetry designed, manufactured and installed by CCMI Kitchen and Cupboard Specialists

A truly monochromatic space does not need to have a lot of fine detail to be interesting; slight variations in tone and texture can create a fascinating visual and tactile experience within the space. 

A gas hob is a fantastic option, particulary if there is a high likelyhood of poweroutages in your area.  Most manufacturers offer gas appliances that can be paired with electrical appliances within a style range, ensuring a cohesive look to your kitchen.

Solid surface countertops come in an array of colours which makes it a good option when cabinet fronts have been custom spraypainted.  Steel rods can be installed to protect the surface.


Reverse finger grip cabinet fronts are created by machining a recess into the substrate of the cabinet front.  This door style is only available in a spray-painted finish, which makes it a great option for custom colour.  Wrap finishes are unfortunately unable to conform to this style of door.

Mood lighting can be achieved by the addition of a lamp on the counter creates atmosphere in a corner that if left unlit would have been rather uninteresting.

Getting to know our clients is very important to us.  Knowing how each individual lives and works in a space helps us to create spaces that are uniquely suited to each client’s lifestyle.  We do our utmost to ensure that every space is built for convenience and ease of flow.
