    If you love the look of black cabinets, please try it. If you are installing new or painting over existing cabinets, place black wrapping paper over the existing cabinets to try it out. Live with that for a few days.
    You can always brighten a kitchen with lots of chrome, white accessories, or fairy lights above the cabinets. Let your imagination run free. I bet it'll be beautiful.

    Create “false” light through the use of under cabinet/over the cabinet lighting...you could use led light rope hardwired In. Additionally, lots of track lights will really brighten the space. White(ish) backspace, flooring and counters should also help

    You can add under cabinet lighting to brighten the kitchen up. I think black cabinets are just lovely

    I love the look of black cabinets. Light wall colors and under cabinet lighting would work.
