Black and white kitchens are clean, modern, and anything but boring, as these photos show.

Twin daughters Merle and Anine join their parents in the family’s kitchen, designed by Jensen for Vipp. He explains that his role as chief designer at Vipp is to "work with their DNA" by refining the company’s trademark materials: stainless steel, painted metal, and rubber. For the utilitarian kitchen, "we wanted to get the feeling of a tool," he says. "It’s nice to have a space where you can actually work." The gas stovetop is by ABK and the refrigerator is by Smeg; Le Perroquet spotlights are from iGuzzini.

Both totally timeless and utterly of the moment, black and white kitchens combine two distinct looks to a great effect. Monochromatic black kitchens are dark and dramatic, while all-white kitchens feel light and airy; today, homeowners are choosing to combine the two aesthetics for visual interest and a touch of glam—think black and white floor tiles; black and white kitchen cabinets; and crisp, white kitchens offset by black countertops.

Here, we’ve rounded up 30 of the most striking black and white kitchen pictures to illustrate the chic look. If you’re considering this color scheme, you’re sure to find inspiration here. We’ve included black and white kitchens that suit an array of design tastes.
