Why You Should Consider Black Matte Appliances
One of the hottest kitchen trends of 2021 is black matte appliances. If trends aren’t your thing don’t hop off this blog just yet. Though it’s trending, black matte finish is actually a timeless color that works well in just about any kitchen design. We’ve got several reasons why you should choose it over traditional stainless steel, which brings us to the first reason to love black matte appliances. If you’re a fan of stainless steel but want a more unique style, black matte appliances offer the best of both--these appliances are actually stainless steel with a special decorative coating. Keep reading for more reasons to start loving black matte appliances.
Black Matte Appliances Add Welcome Drama
The only time drama is welcome is the world of design and one quick way to add instant drama to your kitchen is to pair black matte with stainless steel appliances. This is a great way to test out the trend with just one appliance before going all-in on an all-black matte full kitchen package. For even more drama, pair black matte appliances with lighter cabinetry.
Add Warmth to Utilitarian Spaces
Small, cozy kitchens and farmhouse kitchens can feel utilitarian if you’re not careful to add elements that soften up the room. One easy way to add warmth to a utilitarian kitchen is by choosing black matte appliances over stainless steel. Black matte also looks stunning paired with textured elements such as aged metal, wood, stone, or brick.
Keep Cleaning Easy
Unlike traditional stainless steel, black matte appliances don’t require special cleaning to maintain their look. In fact, you should avoid using scouring pads and abrasive cleaners to keep from removing the special decorative coating. All you need to clean black matte appliances are a soft cloth and warm, soapy water.
Let’s face it. Appliances won’t always look as new as they did the day they were installed, especially if you have children. Smudges, dust, dirt, and watermarks are all hidden on black matte which means you can go another day before wiping down those appliances.
Complement Any Kitchen Aesthetic
We mentioned at the beginning of the blog that black matte looks good in just about any style of kitchen, and we meant it. This timeless finish works with every kitchen design including today’s most popular styles--contemporary, traditional, and farmhouse.
