A coming design trend is black and white kitchens. In the past few weeks, we have installed floor covering in several homes that were updating their kitchen using a black and white color theme. This is a dramatic color scheme that is contemporary as well as traditional, even retro. You can choose black or white cabinets, counter tops, appliances, light fixtures—the combinations are endless. Add a solid white back splash, maybe in a popular subway tile. Most flooring options feature a black and white pattern that ties it all together.
