'I love dark kitchens'
'Black units are a great foil alongside a shiny Aga or range cooker.
'If your kitchen is also your entertaining space and dining room, black units are far less utilitarian looking than the pale colours.
'I have had black units in my kitchen for the last 15 years. The kitchen designer was a bit alarmed and wanted me to go for cream or duck egg.
'But I love them, black goes with everything.'
Below is the link to the article which includes numerous illustrations of kitchens that have made use of black units but sadly there are no real "country" kitchens with an Aga or Rayburn.
As you can see this article has sparked a lot of discussion and it seems most people are not keen on the idea! So maybe this latest "trend" won't take off in a major way - time will tell - but, I for one, am delighted to think that I'm supporting the latest fashion even if my "black" kitchen is fifteen years old!
