Black is elegant, dramatic, stunning, and sophisticated, according to a blog post by KD Kitchen Distributors, which includes photos of kitchens appointed with black cabinets, counters, and appliances.
Nobody likes a trend better than us HouseLogic editors. But we feel it is our duty to warn you of the downside of this dark fashion.
Black is hard to keep clean — fingerprints on black ranges and granite countertops are a constant nuisance — and nicks and scratches in black cabinets stand out. Also, black is very specific and could make your home harder to sell.
So our advice is: Enjoy KD’s fabulous photos, but think twice before hopping on the black bandwagon.
Do you have black appliances? How do you keep them clean?
