Every season someone mentions that some color is the new black–most recently everyone has been talking about gray. But if you ask us – black is the new black, especially when it comes to the kitchen and bath. In recent years we’ve seen midnight hues being used heavily in rooms– whether it’s shiny backsplashes in kitchens or smoky charcoal walls in bathrooms–going dark is a huge trend! After attending design shows like ICFF, we’re noticing more kitchen and bath fixtures being offered in black finishes which means being able to add a touch of black to these spaces has just gotten easier.
Why do most rooms look good with a hint of black? It’s simply because black–a natural enhancer–brings out the color and shape of everything around it. In an all white bathroom the stark contrast of a black faucet and shower head draws the eye and easily brings classic beauty into the space. If you add warm woods to this same room a small touch of black serves as the anchor in the design. Bold, beautiful, powerful, classy and never out of style black is a universal shade that goes with everything! Since we’re loving this color trend we’ve rounded up a list of our top five kitchen and bath brands that have collections with black finishes. Among our top picks you’ll notice fixtures in both a matte and glossy finish— because both can look great and we don’t discriminate. Tell us which one is your favorite!
