Black and gold kitchen - Amazing spaces

A high-end kitchen can have many looks, but for some black and gold deliver high on the feelings of luxury and opulence. And when one homeowner started the gut renovation of their dated home, they wanted just that feel to their kitchen. That’s why they turned to Decorilla. And thanks to the team’s expertise, the new black and gold kitchen is a high-end masterpiece! Read on for the stunning reveal! 

The Challenge: Black, White and Gold Kitchen Design

Overhauling an interior is both exciting and challenging. In fact, this was the case for Decorilla’s high-end kitchen remodel client. With her family home-to-be completely gutted, it allowed plenty of creative freedom. Although the client knew what she wanted, she still needed help turning her black and white interior design ideas with touches of gold, into reality. And so, her designer had to overcome the following challenges:

  • Design an open, symmetrical kitchen with a functional layout and social atmosphere
  • Include black cabinets with glass uppers and stay away from open shelving
  • Ensure all faucets and hardware have a golden finish
  • Incorporate either a grand statement hood or a streamlined, integrated one
  • Keep interior design color psychology in mind to prevent the black accents from making the kitchen feel too dark
  • Create a highly-practical laundry room next to the kitchen, featuring ample cabinet space

The Inspiration: Black and Gold Kitchen

Black and gold kitchen inspiration and ideas

While preparing for her home upgrade, the client researched real online kitchen design projects. She found many she loved and the inspirational images were a great starting point for her ideas. For one thing, it was clear that her family liked an open, airy high-end kitchen with an island at its center. Marble countertops were also a distinct feature, as were clear, clean lines. All of this, as well as a monochrome and gold color palette, gave the luxury kitchen designs an elegant yet practical feeling.

Completing the initial interactive interior design quiz was a breeze. It’s because the client already had an idea of what she wanted for her black, white, and gold kitchen. Once done with the quiz, she completed a brief with Decorilla’s help to further guide the designers.

From there, Decorilla’s team used her details to identify two designers best suited for the project. These designers then created one mood board each, according to her specifications.

Both designers set off to create breathtaking designs. Their distinct concepts were spacious, symmetrical, and sophisticated. In the end, however, it was Selma’s glam contemporary take on the client’s vision that blew her away.

Selma’s use of color made every element pop in its own right, while the layout was just what the client wanted. Furthermore, the proposal also featured transitional and minimalistic touches. Ultimately, the moodboard promised a unique yet timeless high-end kitchen.

The final design is a feast for the eyes. A duo of rooms makes up the high-end kitchen and wash-up area. Both are prime examples of pristine and functional design. Not only do they fulfill the client’s needs, but they also impress anyone who enters. While the crisp, white laundry room doubles as a mudroom, the black and gold kitchen lends itself to social gatherings. It’s precisely what the client wanted.

The black, white, and gold kitchen is a confident contemporary glam design. Each element is carefully selected to enhance the space but also shine in its own capacity. Yet, the center stage goes to the expansive island, oversized pendants, and barstools. 

Not only is the monochrome island a great workspace, but it’s also ideal for hosting parties. Guests can make themselves at home gathered around the generous island, nibbling on snacks and chatting away. Whether hosting a grand soiree or cooking with a loved one – there’s ample space to move around.

The glam contemporary atmosphere of the space is immediately obvious. It’s all thanks to the effective use of gentle neutrals and metallic accents. In fact, the striking contrasts bring a beautiful balance between the design elements. 

The matte black, high-end kitchen cabinets make the off-white backsplash and countertops sparkle. Also, the metallic accents around the room bring out the golden vein pattern of the marble even more.

Crisp, clean lines are a staple of the high-end kitchen design. Essential and decorative elements strengthen this look. The waterfall island and the high-end kitchen cabinets, for instance, bring structure in strong contrast.

Additionally, metallic detail on the statement hood and pendant lights also enhance the aesthetic. Yet, the design is balanced and softened by the curves of the hood, faucets, and light shades.

The high-end kitchen remodel now features a stately pillared entrance, leading to the great room. It also flows to a dining room offset to the side of the kitchen island. The spacious open-plan design not only enhances the flow of traffic but also lets in lots of light. Floor-to-ceiling cabinets, the décor, and finishes, vertically elongate the space, making it feel even roomier. 

Crisp White Laundry Room

In the laundry room, next to the black and gold kitchen, the color scheme changes to a crisp white, which reflects plenty of light. Although it’s a narrow room, the layout is inspired and keeps the space airy and light. One side of the room features a washer and dryer located beneath raised counter space, as well as a basin. What’s more, practical and retractable drying racks sit just above the basin – saving so much space.

Opposite the laundry side of the room is plenty of storage space. Drawers, cabinets, and the fridge take up most of the wall space, with a small built-in bench sitting at the end. It’s a fabulous addition since the laundry doubles as a mudroom.

Teal and soft, golden accents stand out in the primarily white space, making it feel warm and welcoming instead of sterile. Peaceful avian-themed art also dots the room as final touches.
