Why Monochrome Works in Kitchens

How to incorporate the trend into your kitchen

Magnet Kitchens Luna White

Monochrome is the classic combination of black and white, timeless because of its striking contrast and effortless style.

This popular colour pairing has graced the catwalks and featured in wider home trends for many years, but this year we see the rise of monochrome in kitchens. As a result of its timeless appeal, monochrome can work for both modern and traditional homes.

When you’re designing your monochrome kitchen, be sure to choose your prominent colour, rather than an equal balance, to avoid an obvious chequer board feel.

The easier choice is a predominantly white kitchen, such as Magnet’s Luna White, which allows you to make the most of the light in your space. The flowing lines and simple yet sharp white gloss design is complimented by the contrasting black tiles and worktops.

Although sometimes trickier to execute, a black or dark colour scheme is the more unusual option for sophisticated elegance in your kitchen. Mix up the bold, dark colours with a variety of textures. Matt black walls and sleek jet black granite worktops add depth.

If you’re looking for a monochrome kitchen but are concerned about limiting yourself to black and white, oak and walnut features bring variation and warmth to make a welcoming kitchen.
