This season, it turns out there is no “new” black. That’s because nothing compares to a touch of black when it comes to grounding a room. No matter the style, subtlety is the key to executing this trend with class. Opt for simple accents with a classic matte finish. While saturating with black can make a space feel confined, subtle touches serve to elevate the overall design of the room. Stylists are noting a higher demand for black hardware, especially in kitchen and bathroom design. Farmhouse or apron faucet— it doesn’t matter. Choosing matte black will add a touch of serenity. For a simple, yet marked design upgrade, consider switching out your cabinet pulls. You’ll be pleased to find black pairs well with just about anything.
