Matte Black Hardware is Having a Moment, and We’re Not Mad

From kitchen sinks to showerheads to towel rings, one thing is certain this spring: Matte black metal is back, baby. And the best part about this rising trend? Much like a little black dress, the crisp, neutral finish works for traditional, modern and every style in between. Here, 13 of our favorite iterations.

Black hardware is fabulous, but when coupled with matching matte cabinetry, a stylish kitchen becomes a jaw-dropper. This adorable mini slop sink goes high-end with matte black fixtures and decorative accents. We love how this ceiling-height black casing frames out the heavenly walk-in shower.

In a matte black finish, this rain shower head becomes equal parts function and art. And this chic marble bathroom replete with a black cross-handle faucet is a study in understated glamour.

Matte black can provide perfect pops of toughness in a shiny white dream kitchen.

And why stop at just the kitchen faucet? These deep black sinks are incredible. A shapely black vase faucet is the perfect counterpart to a sandy-toned vessel sink. And retro black-and-white tile work transforms the hardware from modern to classic in the blink of an eye. This massive but minimalist marble shower is poetry in bathroom design. For a modern boho vibe, soften black hardware with a cabinet of curiosities (and tons of sunlight).

When everything from your exposed plumbing to your drain to your grooming products is matching matte, you know you’ve nailed the trend.
