One of the main considerations when choosing a new faucet is visual appeal. Whether you need a new faucet for the bathroom or kitchen, it’s helpful to understand the various finishes that can be compatible with your vision.

After decades of polished chrome and brass finishes reigning supreme, dark hues are taking center stage in modern and transitional spaces. Black finishes are becoming increasingly popular for their minimalist sophistication and stealth-like appeal.

Gunmetal and Matte Black Faucet Ideas

Gunmetal Bathroom Faucet Ideas

When compared to Matte Black, Gunmetal offers a cooler hue with blue undertones, conveying a modern look. When left to patina over time, the cool nuances become more apparent, serving as a beautiful complement to contemporary kitchen and bath spaces.

Wall-Mount Bathroom Faucet

Matte Black Bathroom Faucet Ideas

Matte Black is a powder-coated, lightly textured finish that is durable to the rigors of everyday use. The velvety sheen of the finish adds a tactile element to a space that can be dramatic when used in thoughtful abundance or eye-catching as a design accent.

Adding matte black bathroom faucets, fixtures, and hardware is an excellent way to include darker elements in your space and take full advantage of this prevailing design trend without overusing it.

Lever Handle Bathroom Faucet

A tall-spout faucet with smooth lever handles strikes the perfect balance between minimalist and stately. This matte black widespread bathroom faucet from our One collection is ideal for centers between 8” and 16”.

Cross Handle Bathroom Faucet

For a touch of traditional flair, consider getting a matte black faucet with cross handles. With a cross- or X-shape, a piece of metal is attached to the stem, allowing you to twist the handles rather than performing a levering or push-pull action.

Matte Black Kitchen Faucet Ideas

Powder coating provides a matte black finish that is incredibly durable, sensuous to the touch, and visually appealing. Products that have been treated with this process are more resistant to damage from sunlight, chemicals, and moisture. This makes matte black kitchen faucets an ideal choice, because they have a reduced risk of corrosion, fading, scratches, and other issues products may face in high-use spaces.

Contrasting Colors

Juxtapose is a modern collection of kitchen faucets and accessories by KALLISTA developed in collaboration with distinguished kitchen design expert Mick De Giulio. It is stylish in a matte black finish with slim profiles and sophisticated details.

Consider pairing your matte black faucet with white walls and countertops for a timeless two-tone contrast. The appeal of a black and white kitchen will never go out of style.
