Ducks43, I have an all black kitchen and I love it. I’m of the belief that all cabinets show marks, and a black one definitely does, I tend to give it a full clean once every couple of weeks with a spray and wipe and spray enough on to get the surface quite wet. Wipe all over and then go over the surface with a micro fibre. I have a pretty big kitchen but this only takes about 30 minutes. For everyday fingerprints, I just wipe with a micro fibre and the cabinets look good as gold. The finish on mine is a satin/matte finish...hope that helps!

Despite the attractive pictures there isn't one kitchen there I could live with. I really hate black - I find it depressing as well as dark.

I love black with a bit of timber. Open timber shelving is smart, and another interesting way of using black is the exposed timber edging on heavy ply cabinetry stained black!
