Every woman has a little black dress. And almost all of us have a classic pair of black shoes that look good with everything. But what about black when it comes to your kitchen? Kitchen-Design-Ideas.org says "Nothing spells "classy" like the color black! Traditional black cabinets show a high level of sophistication, and are often found in high-end kitchens and multi-million-dollar homes."
Black is classic, but it is dramatic. It is best works in a home that is modern, contemporary or eclectic. "Like a beautiful black Steinway piano, black kitchen cabinets will require loving care and attention. A beautiful black kitchen should be treated like a Cadillac or a Rolls-Royce. Since dust and dirt tend to stand out visually on a dark surface, black kitchen cabinets may require more frequent cleaning and gentle dusting." (Kitchen-Design-Ideas.org)
