The key to having black and/or white kitchen cabinets is how you highlight them. Pick the right color for your counter tops, walls, floors, trimmings and lights. Matching these properly creates the bold, chic and sleek vibe instead of a dark and depressing mood. For example, black cabinets pop out when you have a touch of red in the room either on your walls, furniture or lights. If you have a mixture of black and white, stainless steel lights will look absolutely stunning.

Using the perfect balance of black and white on your cabinets, it is not difficult to incorporate contrasting feels to your kitchen look. Subtle and vibrant elements can help channel and highlight your personality.
