What Houzz contributors are saying:
Add some blingFor a really dramatic look, try teaming deep-toned worktops with some dark metallic units. Here, the gleaming, patinated metal adds luxurious interest to the kitchen.An extra-thick work surface provides even more bold personality, but the dark tones maintain the elegant feel.
Lift dark surfacesThis chic space is full of dark areas, including the black-framed doors and windows, black skirting boards, dark parquet floor and black worktops. To maintain the dramatic feel, it makes sense to go for a deep tone on the cabinets. However, a solid block of colour might have been too moody, so, to lift the space, the designers have chosen an antiqued bronze. The mottled surfaces add some interesting texture to the space, and the polished finish helps to bounce light around the room.
