The traditional kitchen has until recently included light or colorful modern color schemes, letting the black out of the equation all together due to its boldness and attribute of swallowing the light from a room. Yet now a transition is occurring, designers have become more adventurous with their color pallets, including black on their priority list.Its elegance is a fact that we cannot deny, especially when inserted in a classically designed space.
