The Trend Of Black Glass In Kitchen Design

The Trend Of Black Glass In Kitchen Design

The sleek sophistication of black glass is paving the way for a new trend in modern kitchen design – and ILVE is leading the way.

The days of late 20th century all white kitchens have come and gone. Today, the sleek style of black glass is reshaping the way we think about, and design, our kitchens.

As dark and rich tones make a resurgence within the kitchen space, it’s the appeal of black glass that’s helping shape the way we see our homes in the 21st century. As designers and design lovers embrace these trends, ILVE’s black glass range is the perfect addition to bring sleek sophistication into the kitchen.

Every appliance in the ILVE collection is made with black tempered glass that not only looks the part, but also boasts stability, safety and strength. The use of black glass is about more than aesthetics and beautiful integration into the kitchen, it’s an easy to maintain and clean surface, making the cooking experience more enjoyable for all involved.

This range from ILVE includes every appliance you need to elevate a kitchen to the modern look – from ovens and cooktops to microwaves and even a warming draw, all available in sleek black finishes.

All ovens in this range feature a variety of multi-functions and settings to match the aesthetic charm of the black glass finish. Options such as expert mode and preset recipes help any enthusiastic home cook channel their inner chef. These ovens also come in combination and steam options to suit all the needs of a professional home cook, with function and style still at the forefront of each design.

Also in the range are four sleek black cooktops in assorted sizes, available with varied additions such as extra burners and specialty wok burners. The cooktops also feature a beveled edge to give the kitchen a sleek, seamless finish. No matter the shape of the kitchen, the size of the space or the way you like to cook, ILVE’s Black Glass range has something to suit your needs.

This range is a continuation of ILVE’s passion for beautiful Italian handcrafted appliances that encourages every passionate home cook to make meals and memories in the hub of the home.
