White was a dominant color in the kitchen for a long time, and now we're seeing a move towards darker, more dramatic spaces, where black accents and even black cabinets reign. But if you lean towards lighter, airier looks, there's still no denying the appeal of an all white kitchen. How to keep it interesting? Add texture with natural materials, or, for contrast, add just a little bit of black.
