Sometimes forgoing color for a classic palette can really pay off, and these black and white kitchens from top designers are proof. From charming farmhouse looks to sleek, modern designs, this collection of gorgeous black and white kitchens is sure to inspire your own cooking space. When coming up with black and white kitchen ideas, the key is to avoid adding visual clutter. Mix solids with patterns and try to keep the look grounded. For instance, if you have a patterned floor make sure the counter is a solid color. If the counter is patterned, the backsplash should either match it exactly, or be a solid color. The black and white color scheme comes in handy when designing such versatile kitchens that seamlessly blend with the living area and the dining space. By using the monochromatic color scheme, you ensure that the kitchen stands out visually even while keeping the transition from one area of the house to another smooth and appealing. Designer Susan Anthony chose a black tile backsplash, installed in a timeless herringbone pattern, to contrast beautifully with this kitchen's white cabinets. Black and white really are a no-fail combo mix in a bright color using accessories, like Susan did here with the lime green tray.
