Kitchen cabinet hardware is almost like the jewelry of your kitchen design, finishing off the look. Black cabinet hardware is great for adding contrast to your kitchen style and switching out the hardware on your cabinets can be just the thing your kitchen needed to give it a powerful makeover.

If you are looking to add a beautiful black finish to your cabinets, have a look at these modern designs that include black kitchen cabinet hardware in different shapes and designs. Whether you want to go for knobs or pulls, you will find the inspiration you need in this list.

Black hardware stands out against lighter color cabinets in a beautiful, contrasting way, while it can have a more subtle effect when it’s blended into darker cabinet colors.

Black knobs stand out against a light grey kitchen

This beautiful kitchen design features light grey kitchen cabinets paired up with grey walls and a grey peg rail. The black knobs, black faucet, and black countertop add a beautiful contrast to all the grey in the space and I love the way the round knobs look on the classic shaker design of the cabinets.

Small knobs usually have a subtle effect on a kitchen design, yet sometimes you will need different appliance pulls for your dishwasher for example, as it’s difficult to open the heavy dishwasher door with a tiny knob.

A modern grey shaker kitchen with black metal kitchen cabinet hardware

The traditional brushed nickel cabinet pulls with a black finish elevate the design of this beautiful grey shaker kitchen. The cabinet hardware pairs up perfectly with the dark stone countertop and the oval sphere shape of the knobs feels good in your hand when opening the cabinets or drawers.

The black hardware stands out against the lighter cabinet color and is the finishing touch to this kitchen design.

Black cabinet hardware in a classy white kitchen with a tile backsplash

When you combine black metal knobs with white kitchen cabinets, you create a very powerful contrast in your kitchen design. The solid black metal knobs in this kitchen elevate the simple expression in the space and complement the black tile grout and the black sockets.

The kitchen itself, which is finished off with a grey natural stone countertop is very neutral in color, yet by adding a gorgeous warm wood dining table and chairs, the look becomes more warm and inviting.

Black leather finger pulls in a black and white kitchen

Instead of hardware, this minimal white kitchen includes trendy black leather finger pulls that pair up nicely with the black wall light fixtures and the black floating shelf that is used for displaying ceramics.

The leather pulls have a playful and subtle effect in the space that is perfect for opening a drawer or cabinet. Pair these up with appliance pulls for a fridge or dishwasher though, so you can open up heavier doors more easily.

Integrated black cabinet pulls in a grey kitchen

This urban modern kitchen design has black hardware integrated into the cabinet design. The black hardware becomes a crucial element in the design and I love the way the black handles are paired up with a black sink, black faucet, and black appliances.

Black leather pulls and black knobs on matte black cabinets

The black kitchen cabinets in this space are paired up with marble counters and leather pulls that are a bit more modern than your traditional ring pulls. The leather pulls on the bottom cabinets are paired up with regular knobs on the upper ones, however, both of the hardware designs are barely noticeable on the matte black cabinet color.

Black bar pulls in a white and grey kitchen design

The black bar pulls are a sleek and elegant addition to the grey shaker cabinets in this kitchen with white walls and white flooring. The subtle lines of the shaker cabinets are accentuated by the black cabinet hardware that follows in a horizontal direction on the drawer modules and in a vertical direction on the upper cabinets.

Subtle black knobs on minimal white kitchen cabinets

This spacious, minimal white kitchen design is finished off with small black knobs that have a very subtle effect on this modern kitchen. Note that the black hardware on the bottom cabinets is all top-aligned, while the ones on the upper cabinets are bottom aligned, concentrating all the hardware in a single middle strip.

The elegant white cabinets are paired up with a black faucet and an impressive pendant light that accentuates the beautiful crown molding underneath the ceiling.

Tiny black knobs blend in against matte black cabinets

In this kitchen design, the cabinet hardware is barely noticeable, as it blends into the black color of the cabinets. The black oven and the tiny black knobs match the black cabinet color, creating a full black surface at the bottom of the kitchen layout.

The upper section of the kitchen layout is predominately white, with a white subway tile backsplash, a white kitchen sink, light wood countertops, and white walls. The black metal heater, black faucet, and black pendant lamp stand out against this upper white background and match the bottom half of the kitchen layout.

A beige kitchen with elegant black kitchen cabinet hardware

This beige kitchen with white marble countertops features the perfect hardware that is something in between a knob and a pull. The knobs are attached with a single drill hole, yet you can hold the hardware in your hand like a pull.

The beige walls, beige cabinet color, and beige peg rail are brightened up by the white marble countertops and the white wall lamp, yet the black faucet, black sink, and black cabinet hardware make the design interesting and add a lot of contrast.

Black knobs add contrast to trendy sage-green kitchen cabinets

The beautiful kitchen with sage green kitchen cabinets is finished off with wood countertops, a white porcelain farmhouse sink, and black knobs to open the cabinets.

It’s more common to pick out the faucet in the same material as the hardware, yet the black knobs in this kitchen are paired up with a brass faucet. The brass also comes back in the wall-mounted light fixtures, which nicely tie together the design.

A combination of black knobs and pulls in a beautiful grey kitchen

This beautiful kitchen with light grey kitchen cabinets is finished off with beige stone countertops and stainless steel appliances which gives it a modern expression with a classic touch.

The black knobs on the cabinet doors and drawers in the middle of the kitchen layout are paired up with black pulls on the fridge and freezer, as you need more grip to open these appliances.

The black of the hardware is complemented by beautiful black sockets on the white walls, which tie the look together perfectly.

Elegant black bar pulls contrast on white kitchen cabinets

The small bar pulls on these elegant white kitchen cabinets add a subtle strip to each of the cabinets that stand out against the white backdrop of the kitchen.

The matte black cabinet hardware and the black elements in the appliances and light fixtures along with the wood bar stools at the breakfast bar are the only non-white elements in this space, making them stand out in a very powerful way.

While knobs are easy to replace with just one hole and maybe a backplate, cabinet handles are more permanent as you make two holes in the cabinets at a predefined width and distance from each other. If, in the future, you get tired of them, you would need to source cabinet handles of the exact same size and distance in between the drill holes.

Small black knobs add a subtle touch to a minimal grey kitchen with beige walls

Mixing beige walls with dark grey cabinets and wood countertops results in quite the rich color and material palette in this kitchen already, hence the subtle addition of tiny black knobs to not overcrowd the kitchen layout.

The kitchen is spread onto a single wall, including both upper and lower cabinets, which generally benefit from a lighter hardware design.

Minimal black cabinet hardware on dark grey kitchen cabinets

The contrast in this living kitchen is very strong. The dark grey window frames, dark grey kitchen cabinets, and black glossy fridge stand out against the white walls and light hardwood flooring and this contrast has been carried over to the kitchen design as well.

The combination of the black faucet and the black cabinet hardware adds an industrial appearance to the otherwise classic design of the kitchen. The shaker kitchen cabinets and the white marble countertop and backsplash combined with the vintage dining table and the warm leather dining chairs on the other hand, provide this space with an elegant, classic look.

Black cup pulls finish off a tiny kitchen

The textured walls made out of white tile with black grout in this tiny kitchen form the perfect backdrop for a combination of minimal white cabinets with a black countertop, black hood, and black cup pulls to finish off the look.

The black pulls on these kitchen cabinets and the single drawer underneath the oven add a rustic touch to the kitchen and are easy to grab. Classic cup pulls tend to have a more traditional appearance, yet they do tend to look more modern in a black version rather than when you pick them out in brass or aluminum.

Black edge pulls on light oak kitchen cabinets

The light oak kitchen cabinets in this kitchen are paired up with a concrete tile backsplash, a black faucet, a black sink, and sleek edge pulls in matte black. The matte black metal adds visual interest to offset the otherwise very minimal cabinet design, making the cabinet handles a crucial design element of this kitchen.

This type of kitchen cabinet hardware has a more minimalistic effect on kitchen cabinets. When you have a lot of smaller drawers combined, the black hardware gets a more apparent look.
