Small Black Kitchen

As promised - some pictures of my newly painted small black kitchen.

Before (just the wall leading to the hall was painted black):

Excuse the unwashed dishes...

After (a couple of views):






I really love it. Makes the walls feel taller and adds just the right amount of interest to my small space. If you're thinking of adding some black to your kitchen go for it!

What do you think? Would you even paint a wall in YOUR home black...have you?

It looks fabulous. Honestly. It makes such a huge difference.

Wow - looks fabulous! I have some walls I want to paint black but I don't have the guts...so I envy your choice!

I can't believe you're getting away with this! You're gonna have your work cut out for you when you move out! Wallpaper, pink, black paint!

But looks great!

@Jason - LMAO! I asked if I could paint...she said yes....so I painted :) My landlords actually been in my apartment and seen the hall - she thought it looked cool! Regardless of if you paint your unit or not when you move they repaint the entire place...so I don't feel bad. If there's issue with the black paint I have no problem priming it for them ;) The wallpaper will peels off so that shouldn't be an issue. Ya, I'm a bold one, eh? :) You'd think I own the place...

Oh I love it. I don't have any black in my apartment but my bedroom walls are a deep chocolate brown and I love them. I want to eat them every time I wake up and the light pours in on them. Enjoy!

It looks great. I envy you for choosing the pink and black. My room is off white. I'm scared to paint anything other than cream.

I'm all about it - dark walls really just make the corners of a room disappear! You made the right choice!

I was curious to see how this turned out and I love the look! I never thought black walls would work like that and they do!

Wow...great! Your place is really coming together.

Love this, the black looks great on all the walls!!!

I love it! It gives dimension to the space. I want to paint one wall black but I'm still deciding in which room. I think the room needs to get a lot of natural light (like your kitchen) to balance everything out and make the black pop instead of making it look depressing. I also like how it makes the colour of your wreath pop in the background.

I LOVE it!!! It really made a difference and makes the space look so chic.
