Our Favorite Black and White Kitchens on Instagram

You'll want to change your kitchen's design after browsing these stunning black-and-white beauties.

Trends come and go, but the classic combo of black and white has never gone out of style.

This color duo can easily work in any corner of your home, but it looks especially great paired together in a kitchen. We combed through Instagram to find some of our favorite black-and-white showstopping kitchens to inspire you to redesign your own kitchen.

Light Wood Accents

Wood makes an amazing addition to almost any black-and-white color combo. In this gorgeous space, light wood lower cabinets with black accents completing the space. The dark grout against the white backsplash enhances the classic black-and-white style.

Black Breakfast Nook

In this bright kitchen, the homeowner brings in black accents to the white space via a cozy little breakfast nook. The black wall lamps and hanging pendant stand out against the white backdrop. 

Black Cabinetry

This bold kitchen sports ebony black cabinetry offset by bright white countertops. Black drum light fixtures and a mixed color backsplash complete the space. The stainless steel appliances really pop against the dark background.

Black and White Marble

If black is too much of a commitment, go for a more muted tone like this beautiful marble. With deep black veining, this marble manages to bring in just enough contrast while keeping the rest of the space, light, bright and white. A dark, impactful, overhead light fixture is the perfect complement.

Black and Dark Wood

The homeowner paired dark woods with matte black cabinetry in this high-design kitchen. White marble countertops and a backsplash provide the perfect amount of contrast, and the herringbone-patterned wood floor makes the entire space look even more glam.

Black Cabinet Pulls

One of the simplest ways to add black to your kitchen space is to switch out the cabinet pulls. In this kitchen, black pulls and hinges look great with the white cabinetry, countertops and backsplash. A small overhead light above the sink provides another pop of black.

Black Stone

This kitchen features wood cabinetry paired with black stone with white veining. The dark wood floor pulls the space together, while the white walls and light fixture balance it all out.

Open Shelving

Black and white kitchens work great with the open shelving trend. This fresh space uses black cabinetry, white countertops and a wall tiled all the way up to the ceiling. Wood open shelving gives your eye some breathing room and provides additional visual interest. Modern white and brass light fixtures complete the look.

Black and White Tile

Many people go bold with their backsplash tile, but the bold tile in this kitchen is on the floor. It looks high-end when paired with zesty green cabinetry and a butcher block countertop. The arched black window trim adds an extra touch.

Small Spaces

Black and white works well in small-space kitchens. With a stunning marble backsplash, black cabinets, and sleek white countertops, you don’t notice the kitchen is tiny. One simple open shelf is all this homeowner needs for storage.
