1. Red Pendant Lights for an Effortless Redecorating in a Black and White Kitchen Interior
Please take a look at the picture of this contemporary kitchen. It is clearly shown here that the most dominant colors used are black and white. You can see them from the wall, ceiling, cabinets, countertops, and chairs.
The thing that catches our attention here is the four red pendant lights above the island. FYI, the product that you see here is Ruby Red Camino from Besa Lighting.
We are interested in these lights because there is a simple yet very effective redecorating idea that lies in them. You can use new red lights to replace the old ones and add a touch of red color to your black and white kitchen design.
We all know that there are a lot of lighting products with red color themes available right now. The thing that you must remember when choosing one for your kitchen is that it must match the interior style you use there.
For example, the red pendant lights you see in the kitchen look simple and sophisticated at the same time. It is highly suitable for the contemporary style applied in the interior.
2. A Red Accent Wall in a Contemporary Kitchen with White Cabinets and Black Table Set
Here is another simple yet fascinating idea that you can give a try. This one is also applicable when you already have a black and white kitchen theme.
The idea that we meant here is creating a red wall on one side of the room while letting the others still in white color. By doing it, you can create something accentuating that will arrest people’s attention.
You can take a look at the picture of a contemporary kitchen above as an example. There you can see that there is only one side of the walls colored in red paint.
The product used here is Benjamin Moore Mars Red 2172-20. The color becomes the only red element in this kitchen interior, and this is one of the reasons why the visual effect resulted is accentuating.
Here, the white hue is dominating the area. We think that it is so not without any reason. It seems the dominant white from the walls, ceiling, and even cabinets here is meant for balancing the boldness resulting from the red and black elements in there.
Although it is not related to the color theme that we talk about in this post, we cannot lie that we are also interested in the choice of oak flooring here. The dark color enhances the elegance of the room to be stronger.
3. A Modern Black and White Kitchen with Medium-Tone Wood Cabinets and Red Flooring
If you are already satisfied with furniture choices and other kitchen elements but still want to perform a red remodeling there, you can replace the flooring. This idea might be pretty big, so you can consider it more when you think that the kitchen floor also needs some replacement at the time.
The use of red flooring in a kitchen might not be as much as other colors for the same element. Although so, when done correctly, you can see how attractive the result will be.
The picture above shows an example that you must take a look at. As you can see, the flooring here is in red, but unfortunately, we cannot find any information on whether it is painted, stained, or used any pre-colored material.
The sure thing is that this red flooring here looks so stunning. At the same time, it is still suitable for the minimalist kitchen style.
We love the warm white wall paint used here. It looks nicely contrasting with the black window frame while at the same time still bringing coziness to the interior. The black-painted wood countertops here also look attractive in their boldness.
From the same picture, we are sure that you also notice the use of medium-tone wood cabinets. It gives you another idea that you can also include another color in the black, red, and white kitchen interior to make the design even more interesting if you want to.
4. Painted Red and White Diamond-Pattern Wood Floor in a Black and White Kitchen
Here is another floor remodeling idea to apply in the red, black, and white interior. It is specifically available in the picture of a traditional kitchen above.
The interior here has white and black as the most dominant color. The pairing between the white cabinets, black countertops, black backsplash, and stainless-steel appliances creates a stunning view.
When you take a look at the flooring, you will find something that is even more attractive. It is a red and white diamond pattern.
FYI, it is a painted hardwood floor. The idea applied here is perfect to follow when you want to update your wood floor’s visual in the black and white kitchen.
5. A Transitional Black and White Kitchen with Red Subway Tile Backsplash
In this next idea, we still use black and white kitchen remodeling as an example. However, the idea here is a bit different. It is none other but replacing your old kitchen backsplash with the new one in red.
The idea might sound simple. Although, you must know that the result will make the kitchen look very different from it is before.
Please take a look at the picture above and imagine that the subway tile backsplash is not in red but black or white. Then, you can look at the picture again and see it when the backsplash is already red. The red hue removes the absolute classic transitional look with its color spark.
Here is another view of the transitional kitchen. From this side, you can see how stunning and popping the red backsplash looks.
6. A Traditional White Kitchen with Red Range and Black Countertops
Other than the floor and backsplash, there is another red detail that you can add to the black and white kitchen. The thing that we meant here is the oven stove.
This appliance is always the one that catches a lot of attention in the kitchen area. It is not merely about the big size but also because it is the main thing used for cooking there.
If you are curious, the stove you see in the picture above is Bertazzoni PRO366GASRO 36” Pro-Style Gas Range. The bright red color pops being placed in between the white cabinets with black countertops.
The thing that we love much about this appliance is the fact that it also has chrome details on the upper part, particularly on the knobs. It creates a compatible visual between the stove and other appliances there, particularly the coffee maker and the toaster.
Lastly, a red kitchen rug is also placed in the interior. It does not only become a perfect match for the bright red color of the stove. Instead, it also creates a stylish contrast with the black and white diamond checkered tile flooring.
7. An Eclectic Kitchen with Black Cabinets, Red Appliances, and White Subway Tile Backsplash
A red stove is also suitable to add in a kitchen dominated with black color, as you can see in the picture. In this interior, white is the second most dominant color used, as you can see in the backsplash and countertops.
The stove that you see here is Cherry Red 30” Retro Stove by Big Chill. It looks stunningly in contrast with the black cabinets manufactured by Smithport Cabinetry. FYI, from the kitchen furniture’s visual, they seem to be in the Mission style provided by the maker. The color is highly possible to be the ebony finish.
The thing that we found to be interesting here is that the stove is not the only bright red item in the kitchen. For example, there is also a red mixer in the corner.
There is no information stated about the stand mixer we see in the picture. However, it looks highly similar to the Hot Sauce Refurbished Artisan Mini 3.5 Quart Tilt-Head Stand Mixer by KitchenAid.
The red knobs also steal attention. Unfortunately, the designer cannot give any information about them since they are chosen personally by the homeowners.
We cannot miss the black and red poppy tile included in the backsplash design. This piece is custom-made by a local artist.
8. A Black and White Eclectic Kitchen with Complete Set of Red Retro Appliances
If you want to do something bigger that can create an even bolder and stunning view in the kitchen area, you can replace all old appliances with the new ones sold in a set. Something like this is beneficial in building a coordinating view in the interior.
As an example, you can see the picture above. In this retro-style kitchen, the appliances used are a set of candy red kitchen appliances by Elmira Stove Works.
Those include the 30” All-Electric Range Model 1954 that is paired with the Northstar Hood. There are also Northstar Refrigerator Model 1950, Northstar Dishwasher, and Northstar Microwave.
9. A Black and White Kitchen with Red Accents from the Stools
The red accentuating detail that you can add in a kitchen dominated with black color with a bit touch of white should not always be appliances. You can use other things like furniture if you want to.
In the picture of a rustic kitchen above, for example, the interior is dominated by the black color from the furniture and the stove backsplash and hood. There is also white wall paint that dominates the open space.
The pop of red here comes from a pair of red stools you can see near the bold black kitchen island. The color portion here might be way smaller than the others. However, it pops well that it can steal attention quite easily too.
An idea like this does not cost you much money too. That is why it will be perfect for performing when you want a small remodeling with a limited budget.
10. Red and Black Director-Style Dining Chairs and Other Red Decorative Items in a White-Dominated Contemporary Kitchen
If you tend to love a decorative look, you can use the contemporary kitchen picture above as a source of inspiration. You can see that many functional items also look decorative because of the visual and how they are arranged in the interior.
The first that catches our attention is the chairs. They seem to be the red pattern and black finish World Famous Director Chair Dining Height by Telescope Casual Furniture.
In the island design right in front of the kitchen, there is a black sink paired with a stunning faucet. The product is Matte Black/Red Industrial Bridge Kitchen Faucet with Side Sprayer KPF-3125MBRD by Kraus.
Going further, you can also see a decorative red and black kitchen rug placed on the floor. There are also black holders installed on the backsplash to hang the red utensils and rose gold pans neatly. The products used here look very similar, with 33.2” DULUX Kitchen Utensils Holders available at Wallniture.
Some red containers and bowls are arranged aesthetically on the wall-mounted shelves. They enhance the decorative value of the kitchen interior even better.
11. Glossy Red Cabinets and Island, Black Countertops, and White Backsplash to Enhance the Kitchen’s Style Value
This last inspiration is suitable to follow when you are about to build a new kitchen or when a significant remodeling is a plan that you have in mind. In this design, red is the most dominant color as it is used for the cabinets that take the most space in the interior.
We love the glossy appearance of this furniture set. It makes the red color even more prominent and enhances the stylish and elegant visual there.
It looks even better because there are two other elements connected directly to it. Those are the bold black countertops and the chrome stainless-steel appliances that boost the professional and hygienic look in the kitchen.
12. A Bold Red and Black Island in a Traditional White Kitchen Interior
If you have a white kitchen, you can also change only the island in there. You can do this by buying a new one. If you think it costs you too much money you can repaint the only one and replace the old countertops with the black ones.
The design options for the island are endless. However, you must make sure that it suits the interior style and the type of white theme you use in the kitchen.
For example, you can take a look at the picture of a warm white traditional kitchen above. The white color theme here makes the interior look highly elegant.
The choice of color for the island here is just excellent. The rather dark red hue matches the room’s elegance without being too pop. Everything is even better because the antique black absolute granite countertop is in a muted shade also.
13. Eat-in Kitchen Style in Black, Red, and White Theme
The last but not least idea that we want to share with you here is a breakfast area in the black, white, and red kitchen design. With its existence, the interior will become an eat-in kitchen instead of the one that you use for cooking only.
The picture that you see above contains an example of a breakfast area in a Mediterranean-style kitchen. The thing that catches our attention the most is how the window seat here is made to be something built-in as a part of the custom cabinets at the end of the room.
We also like the stunning red stools added for extra seats there. The product that you see here is one of the TABOURET HDP collections by Tolix. The color is either POIVRON or PIMENT.
Here is another example of a black, red, and white kitchen eating area. Something that looks like this is more suitable to call a breakfast nook.
The dominant color here is white. The designer also adds some black and red accents for an even more attractive visual.
The red chairs that you see here are the Red Modern Alton Set Dining Chairs by Leisuremod.
Here is another example of a kitchen nook with a black, white, and red color theme that you can get inspired from. We love it the most because this part of the kitchen seems decorated carefully to create an elegant and luxurious look.
The glossy black round table looks very stylish. It seems in contrast in a good way with the white chairs.
The nook looks even more attractive because of the existence of red accents there. Those include the candles, plates, curtains, and roman shade.
Red black and white kitchen is a fascinating topic to talk about. We are definitely in love with how stunning all those colors are combined in a kitchen interior.
No matter which most dominant color that you pick, the design will look amazing. The sure thing is that you will always get a touch of boldness here. Thanks to the existence of the black and red color in this design idea.
From all of the examples above, is there any that you think to be the most inspirational? Share your thoughts!
