3 Reasons Why Everyone Needs Black in Their Home Design
Are you on the hunt for the next trendy finish for your faucet? Well look no further with the different variations of black! In 2017, we saw it as the upcoming trend and it doesn’t look like it’s going away anytime soon. Whether it’s matte or glossy, this finish will revamp any kitchen or bathroom you place it in. Typical finishes, such as nickel and chrome, are usually a safe choice and give off a neutral vibe to a room, but they may consequently be seen as dull. With just the smallest touch of black, you could instantly upgrade any room without giving up functionality. A black finish may seem like an unusual choice, but here are some reasons as to what’s great about it:
Be minimalist with all the attitude. As a rule of thumb, less is more. There’s no need to worry about the black finish not matching your current furnishing because it can be paired with virtually any color. Paired with gold, white, nickel, or even black looks great with a black finish. If you have too much color or too many textures going on in your room, your mind and eyes tend to get overwhelmed causing us to look away. Just a hint of black can make your room look romantic, edgy, and expensive without any effort.
The key to creating contrast is balance. A balanced design is all about creating layers of color and contrasting dark with light elements. For example, if you have a plain colored kitchen and add a black faucet, your eyes will automatically be drawn to the faucet. Use a black accent as an instant focal point to enhance your design. Our eyes love a dominant contrast because we don’t have to think about where to look first. If you feel intimidated by such a strong presence, you can start with small accessories and see if it’s to your liking. When visitors lay their eyes on your black decor, not only is it a conversation starter, but it also guides them through your design flow.
Some may say it’s even timeless. A clean black finish can go with any style of bathroom or kitchen: modern, luxury, or traditional. Black will give your room a clean and organized look. You can still experiment with different colors and textures but make sure you don’t overdo it. Remember that balance is key. It’s time to be bold and brave. Let the black finish do the work for you.
