Light and Dark

A Kitchen’s Light and Dark Side


Knives and forks at the ready as we step inside a sophisticated Sydney kitchen with a serious “wow” factor.

With a brief for a black-and-white kitchen theme, the team at Degabriele Kitchens have knocked it out of the park with this luxuriously moody makeover. Found inside a traditional home in Drummoyne, the new kitchen needed to exude a modern traditional aesthetic.

Luxury Dark Kitchen

The location of the kitchen sees natural light surrounding the room, with swathes of sunshine flowing into the space. This enviable positioning made working with a dark colour palette more conducive to functional family living. Indeed, for a space with such dark features, the kitchen is surprisingly light and airy.

Custom-made gold powder-coated integrated handles, combined with warm and natural lighting as well as a layout that balances form and function, work to offset the dominant black colouring.

The joinery, a sumptuous dark veneer, facilitates an interesting and textured surface that imbues the space with depth and ties in with the black window frames. Creating a sense of sophistication that is simultaneously warm and welcoming, this kitchen is one to pin on your moldboard.
