Trend Alert: Black Faucets

INSPIRATION

Instead of choosing between chrome or brass fixtures, our interior designers suggest a bolder option: black. Matte black faucets in the kitchen or bath are one of the hottest trends in kitchen and bath fixtures–and for good reason. Black can have a huge impact on a space making it feel at once both grounded and modern. Like the best little black dress, matte black faucets can look fantastic in any style of space–from contemporary modern to rustic. This is a trend that has some staying power. Check below for some of our favorite examples.
