Goth Kitchen Decor Ideas– With Halloween around the corner, everyone is excited to dress-up scary. However, many do not limit the spooky theme to their costumes only. They like to re-vamp the entire house to match the vibe.

Budget-Friendly Must-Haves for Gothic Kitchens
Before we dive into our inspired gothic kitchen ideas, we want to let you know our main inspiration was the Adam’s family 😉
To recreate the darker yet unique kitchen design aesthetics, you first need to invest in the following gothic kitchenware must-haves:
- Black Kitchen Napkins
It is vital you start with the essentials, such as kitchen towels. These simple cotton waffle weave kitchen towels will not only look great in your dark kitchen but will also help to quickly wipe off any blood stains… Oh I mean wine stains *wink wink*.
- Black Kitchen Cabinets
Doing all the woodwork from scratch in your kitchen can be costly. A cost-effective solution is to buy this Nuvo Plus Black Deco Cabinet Paint Kit and paint away all your kitchen cabinets black.
- Bold Cursive Kitchen Labels
Invest in some pantry labels printed in black colour on clear glossy water-resistant paper such as the ones above. These are 377 Bold cursive labels that will add to the whole gothic vibe and look organized as well.
- Black Marble Kitchen Counter Sticker Roll
It does not matter what colour your kitchen counter is. You can easily peel and stick these black marble wallpaper onto your kitchen countertop. These would not only look good for a gothic kitchen idea but will also add a premium look to your kitchen all year round.
- Skull Salt and Pepper Shaker
Having a skull as a decorative element is a must for Halloween. You can either dig up your backyard to find a human skull to put salt and pepper shakers into the eye sockets or buy a fake one online. There are plenty of skull kitchen accessories available online.
- Gothic Utensil Holder
This coffin-shaped knife holder will be a great addition to your kitchen counter. You can also use this stand to organize ladles, silverware or spatulas. There are coffin-shaped egg holders and napkin holders available on the internet as well.
- Gothic Dinnerware
A black dinner set such as this one can be your staple at all parties. The solid black colour of this dinnerware brings out the colour of the food served on it more. We highly recommend you add this to your gothic kitchenware collection.
- Gothic Kitchen Wall Décor
You can use this 2 Pcs gothic kitchen décor to hold your ladles, hang kitchen towels or even hang your coffee mugs. These spooky resin hands give the impression of demons emerging from your kitchen walls to take a soul or two!
How to Decorate a Goth Kitchen?
Gothic decor usually includes elements of dark wood or metal and resembles mediaeval architecture. Once the colour palette and other major kitchen components are decided, thrift shops, yard sales and some websites offer good opportunities to find decor items to complete a Gothic kitchen.
A Gothic kitchen would look great with dark walls, rustic beams or wood shelves, and even a candle chandelier. On existing shelves or window sills, reclaimed stained glass windows can be placed. The Gothic aesthetic is also evoked by exterior features like gargoyles sitting on cabinets.
You’ve done a wonderful job designing a Gothic kitchen if it resembles the kitchen of a castle.
So let us now have a look at the best goth kitchen décor ideas for you to copy easily!
15 – Make it Gothic but Bright
While most goth kitchens will have a dark ambiance (rightly so), Jess and Dai’s gothic kitchen is surprisingly bright and this feels like a pretty good change.
14 – Modern Goth Kitchen
Ruth Wilson from “where goth meets glam” has designed what I believe to be the perfect modern goth kitchen as it is equal parts goth and glamorous.
13 – Big and Brown
A gothic kitchen does not have to be all black. Instead, if you have gotten a big, warm brown kitchen, you can give it a gothic look without overdoing too much.
Just add a statement chandelier like the one we share above your dining table and place all your black kitchen appliances over the counter for an elegant gothic-inspired kitchen.
12 – Simple Grey with Black Marble Top
If you already have a black countertop, that’s great! If not, then you can use the peel and stick the water-resistant black marble wallpaper over your countertops to achieve the look. It can instantly give your simple grey kitchen a gothic flair.
11 – All Black Cabinets
To achieve this look use black wood paint to paint all your kitchen cabinets black. For the countertop, you can use the black marble top sticker.
Now, it does not matter if your kitchen appliances or your dinnerware is of another colour. The cabinets and the black countertops and enough to turn your boring kitchen into a goth dream.
10 – Black Dining Chairs
Despite your kitchen walls and your countertop being of any colour, you can give a dark flair to your kitchen by adding these contemporary tufted velvet black chairs to your dining table.
These might be an expensive purchase but adding contemporary velvet upholstered dining chairs with solid wooden legs and a button tufting to your dining table that too in all black colour can make your kitchen look ‘Boujee’.
I also love Lady Vamo Manor’s gothic table set-up with a black and white, striped table cover.
9 – Neutral Goth Kitchen with Victorian Cabinets
This kitchen showcases neutral walls with neutral-coloured marble countertops, yet the Victorian accents of the kitchen cabinets give this kitchen a gothic style. The cupboards have an intricately carved design that brings the whole gothic look together.
8 – Accessorize with Gothic Kitchenware
When you want some inspiration for a gothic kitchen, then buying unique gothic kitchenware is a smart idea.
You do not need to change much in your current kitchen, just add these tiny decorative elements such as coffin knife holder, skulls salt and pepper shaker holder and demon hands to your countertops and dining table and you are good to go!
7 – Black Crockery and Silverware
What could be a more gothic expression of self than eating in all-black crockery and silverware? These black dinnerware look modern yet compensate for all the non-gothic elements in your kitchen.
These matte black silverware sets look sophisticated and are a great addition to any dining experience. It can great complement your gothic kitchenware collection.
I wouldn’t say that you should limit yourself to just plain crockery as printed cutlery like this set from rogueandwolf looks gothic and interesting.
Of course, no kitchen is complete without mugs that go with the theme.
6 – Modern Gothic Kitchen
Achieve a modern and sophisticated gothic kitchen design by just keeping everything in your kitchen in three colours, black, grey and white. No need for fancy Mediterranean accents or vintage chandeliers. These three colours are enough to set the dark vibe.
5 – Picturesque Windows
This spacious white kitchen cum living room is filled with light that comes through the picturesque windows. What makes this a gothic kitchen is the dark window trims, stained glass and a couple of black decorative elements such as black coffee dining, black high chairs, a black dining table and a grey sofa. Moreover, the arched windows and wood ceiling beams are quintessentially gothic.
If possible, I would highly recommend adding a gothic chandelier to a setup like this. The beauty of gothic chandelier is in its beads and crystals that take you back to medieval times. You can hang it over your kitchen dining table and it can light up a fairly large area. It will be a centrepiece of attraction in your gothic kitchen.
4 – Gothic Kitchen Labels
Labelling all your pantry items with black vinyl stickers along with some gothic décor elements like the bat stickers shown in the picture above can bring a tinge of gothic-ness to your neutral or all-white kitchen.
3 – Purple Gothic Kitchen
Do not think red and black are the only two colours to play with when transforming your kitchen into a medieval design. You can use deep purples, dark browns and emerald greens as well or use a little bit of all three.
As shown in the picture above, the purple cupboards with warm flooring and kitchen walls express a vintage vibe that could go for the gothic kitchen category even if you do not add gothic décor accessories.
However, do not confuse lilacs and lavenders as goth, these colours are perceived to be dreamy instead. Only dark deep purples can replace black in gothic kitchen ideas.
2 – Emerald Green Gothic Kitchen
This emerald green kitchen screams goth. The large emerald green stone walls are paired with candles and brass knobs and handle to add to the authentic feel of this rustic gothic kitchen.
1 – An All-White Gothic Kitchen
Imagining a white kitchen to be gothic can be difficult for some. However, if you use an antique crystal chandelier along with carved wooden cabinets with glass panes, warm lighting and a few antique brown vintage kitchen décor pieces, you can instantly implicit a medieval goth vibe. Of course, we recommend accessorizing the kitchen more with black dinnerware and cutlery and using black kitchen towels for a more detailed goth look.
That brings us to the end of this blog. The possibilities for creating a perfect gothic kitchen are endless. As they say, the sky is the limit to your imagination. Do let us know in the comments below which one was your favourite.
