Do Kitchen Appliances Have To Match?

When it comes to renovating, there’s always endless decisions to make with style. Modern and minimalist or dramatic enough to command attention, matching appliances are great for giving your kitchen a stylish update. The beauty of the newest, most sleek appliances is that they look great as standalone items. But if you are after a complete luxe feel, a matching look can really bring the look together.

Why Should I Consider Black Kitchen Appliances?

Matching appliances is the first step, but if you want to go even further, the colour black can add a touch of drama to any kitchen makeover!

Over the last couple of years, design experts and avid home design lovers have incorporated this style not just in the kitchen, but across their whole home, including bathrooms and laundries.

It not only brings an immediate level of sophistication and mystery; it can also be achieved on a budget. With carefully selected appliances, you can create a timeless space that you’ll enjoy for years to come.

Does Your Kitchen Suit Black Appliances?

If you are renovating and want to know how your kitchen can be the right fit, we have some tips. Typically, black appliances go well with any modern aesthetic. There is no specific design ‘rules’ when it comes to black appliances, but there are some guidelines on how it works best.

Kitchens are often the heart of the home so it’s important to make it a space you love – colours and textures can really help bring this to life.

Black appliances can give an instant ‘makeover’ to your kitchen, but the real transformation happens when it matches the overall design. One way you can do this is through utilising contrast. Black appliances against lighter designs create a bold, modern effect, as well as create interesting focal points. The other option is going tone-on-tone, by matching your black appliances with other dark cabinetry and finishes – this option creates a cohesive, polished and high-end look, often adding a hint of moodiness and drama!

What Else To Think About …

Like everything with renovation, there is a lot to consider when it comes to what appliances are going to be the perfect match for your new kitchen. Make sure you consider the smart features that you want, as well as energy efficiency ratings (to save on running costs).
