There are various factors at play in the success of the lovely kitchens from Livingetc; here are some ways to make it work if you want to implement the look at home:
• Keep it simple. Dark wood cabinets are a bold statement, and one that could potentially look dated in a kitchen that's too busy or cluttered. Keeping the overall décor simple and straightforward creates a more modern aesthetic.
• Consider white walls. The contrast between a pure white wall and a dark wood cabinet or counter is striking and classic.
• Think industrial. Metals, including stainless steel, look beautiful against dark wood. Consider installing fixtures with an industrial feel to offset the wood.
• Play with mixed woods. Mixing dark and light wood finishes in a kitchen creates depth and warmth.
