Monochrome Magic – Modern black and white kitchen design | CCMI

Monochrome Magic

Colour is not everyone’s cup of tea… and this kitchen shows just how little colour is needed to create a truly impactful space. 

Matte black teamed with white marble creates a high-contrast, ultra-modern space proving that black really is the new black!  This contemporary kitchen is pure monochrome magic.

Add a pop of colour to your monochromatic space with accessories.  In the kitchen this is easily achieved by selecting small appliances in vibrant colours.  Adding colour to a room creates points of interest directing the eye to view the room from various perspectives… when done well it has a huge impact!

Modern storage solutions come in many shapes and sizes, such as drawers within drawers, making it easy for you to keep your kitchen free from clutter.

Have an open mind when consulting with your kitchen designer.  An experienced designer will offer up great suggestions.  However, it is your space and you know how you will live and work in it, so don’t be afraid to speak up about what will make your life easier.

Design elements in the kitchen need not be purely functional.  A reflective splashback creates interest by mirroring the open-plan living space and in this instance the view of the cityscape below.

Lighting is super important! Ambient, mood and task lighting should all be considered.  Strip lighting beneath wall cabinets allows for working on countertops without casting shadows.  

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.
