Wood or Metal? The choice is really yours as there is not huge difference between the two. Metal tends to be a little more scratch proof while wood tends to have a better feel, so the choice is really yours.
Black cabinets are ideally suited for contemporary kitchen design. In contemporary kitchen design, there are not too many earth colors so black will create more impact. Black mixes up quite well with stainless appliances and white highlights. You can use white kitchen cabinets alone if you are interested in creating a very pure appeal. On the other hand, black cabinets are best used when it is mixed up with the other elements in the kitchen.
Many contemporary kitchens will use black and white as their color schemes with a black and white checkered floor, white walls and either black appliances and black kitchen cabinets or white appliances. Either of these two schemes will work well together. A white kitchen table or black kitchen table will round out the area.
Using upper or lower halves of cabinets is normally the way to go when you are looking for contrasting elements in black cabinets. You also have a choice of using a granite countertop with black highlights. The granite countertop with black highlights offers you continuity. Granite countertop works brilliantly in a bigger space. Too much black in a smaller kitchen will create uninviting ambience.
Make Sure the Lighting is Right - One mistake a lot of people make when getting black cabinets is that they do not have the right kind of lighting installed in their kitchen. If your lights are not very bright or if you tend to have a more dark kitchen, then black cabinets won't be the best fit. This is because dark cabinets combined with dark lighting just makes the entire room seem a lot more bland.
