20 Modern Black and White Kitchens That Used Wood

In designing the interior of our home, we are given many different choices when it comes to color and materials.

Whatever is our choice has a great impact on how the space will look like and it will create the aura of the space.

Have you felt the difference of a room with all white colors and another with some bold feature in it?

For sure, you did!

You have to take this into consideration when choosing colors and materials for your home.

Do you know what the commonly used palette in a residential interior is?

With that, we are going to show you some modern kitchens that made use of black, white and wood in it. You will definitely love this list since all the kitchens are really beautiful!

For a more compact look, you can also have a kitchen like this one with black cabinets on one side and a white island.

The natural appeal of wood could really have a great impact in any space. It looks good whatever you pair it with. You have seen how wood complimented with the black and white colors of the kitchens above. Notice also that the usage of said color and material varies depending on the size and shape of the kitchen. But in whatever way they use it, it still looks really nice. You can also check out kitchens with black and wood palette that we have featured before. For sure, you will love that list too!
