Black Kitchen Benchtops
The colour black has many virtues. It is timeless, and therefore, fits in with any style, from the most classic to the most avant-garde. But it is also captivating enough to enhance any feature on its own. In the case of kitchen benchtops, black will always be a good choice if you want the work surface to be the main focus.
Another advantage of fitting a black benchtop in your design project is that it will work with any colour used for walls, floors, furniture... However no matter how much you like this neutral colour, it is advised not to use it in throughout the whole project because it absorbs the light. That is why we advise you to not use it in more than 50% of the space.
Ideas for kitchens with a black benchtop
WHY CHOOSE A BLACK BENCHTOP?
Black is a colour that brings great elegance and distinction to a kitchen. It has a dramatic character that makes it the centre of attention. For this reason, it is best to use in moderation, for example the benchtop only, so as not to overwhelm the space.
IDEAL FOR PLAYING WITH LIGHT AND DARK
Get an attractive depth effect playing with light and dark. Not only is it a safe bet when combined with white & black it also combines perfectly with soft shades such as pearl grey, beige, pastel yellow…
If, in addition to the kitchen benchtop, you’d like to use black in more areas, to bring distinction and personality to your home, we advise you to use open units or glass fronts, so as not to darken the space.
ENHANCE THE BRIGHTNESS
Black does not reflect light but traps it, so its use should be limited. Therefore, a black kitchen benchtop is ideal for a large, well-lit space. Furthermore, it enhances the brightness of the space with small metallic touches.
BEWITCHING AND MYSTERIOUS
Black is an enigmatic colour, very powerful in interior design. To enhance that mysterious halo, you can choose a black kitchen benchtop with touches of other colours or beautiful veining. The surface will look even more impressive.
