Pics of kitchens with BLACK appliances!

laurielepJanuary 24, 2009

We are completely gutting and redoing the kitchen. Last time it was done was 1953 :)

Right now I have white appliances and we decided to go with black. We both aren't into stainless but after viewing a bunch of the finished kitchen in this forum, I noticed that the majority have stainless (which does look awesome!)

Does anyone have black? If so, post some pics for me!!

We are going with a Mocha Maple cabinet with lighter countertops (haven't picked out the counter yet)

Flooring is ceramic tile, med beige.

Thanks :)

I have some black appliances along with a stainless fridge. I was kind of concerned that a black fridge would end up being a big black hole. I'm not sure what I'll get (black or probably stainless) when I replace the DW, it was the only appliance I kept, (and it just keeps on working).

Good luck with your remodel and enjoy your new kitchen.

We have all black appliances except for a stainless range, but it has a black top!

You can easily find kitchens with black appliances in the Finished Kitchens Blog by looking in the category Appliances:Black.
Now not all the kitchens in this category have only black appliances but you should be able to find many with all black.

this is very helpful. I will soon be making the black vs. ss decision too. I especially like seeing black with the offwhite cabs. I was concerned too much contrast, but downsy's got it right. It looks like having a lot of other black helps the overall balance.

Downsy, I notice that your microwave aligns with the bottom of your cabinets really well. Usually it seems they are a little higher or a little lower. Is that a 12" upper cab or 15"? what kind of M/W?

Thank you everyone for posting pics! It's so hard to make a decision! I picked all the appliances out and it's all about color now.

Hi Wendy!
My cabinets above the MW are just shy of 15". These cabinets are 20 years old so maybe they made different sizes back then? LOL

We originally didn't have a MW up there when we bought the house, but asked the builder to put one in, so he had to adjust the cabs to fit the MW. The original MW was a Kenmore and we replaced it several years ago with a GE Spacemaker (XL 1400). We got lucky because it fit perfectly.
