Black is Back: How To Incorporate Matte Black in Your Bathroom

Black is Back

Matte black is the new trending style for bathroom renovations. People are increasingly turning to this non-traditional finish because of its minimal gloss and modern look. If you’re looking to personalize your home bathroom you can get inspired by the many ways of bringing matte black into your space.

Here are some unique ways you can incorporate this trendy look into your bathroom.


  1. Showers

Adding a matte black shower head is a great way to modernize your current shower faucet. It’s one of the easiest changes you can make. Changing the shower head is as simple as screwing the old one out and screwing in the new one. However, to be able to truly transform your space, switch to a complete matte black shower kit instead of only changing the shower head. Matte black shower systems now come with oversized rainheads, handshowers, and even body jets to create a spa like shower experience.


  1. Faucets and Accessories

If you are looking to try out the matte black trend without fully committing, bathroom facets and accessories are best to start with. Since they are pretty easy to replace, you can start with them as you go replacing other items with time. Most bathroom sink faucets are easy projects that you can handle by yourself. Matte black bathroom sink faucets are available in a variety of styles and configurations. Pick between a contemporary single handle black faucet, or a bold widespread black faucet to add some character to your space.

If you want to incorporate matte black, but don’t want to redo any plumbing, swapping out your old bathroom accessories is an easy project. Replacing your towel bar, paper holder, and robe hooks with black finishes will give your space a fresh and modern look.

Tip: Matte black finished faucets are extremely spot resistant. It can easily hide water spots that may accumulate from regular use. However, they are subject to visible mineral build up from hard water. You may be required to clean them regularly to prevent damage to the finish and keep them looking great.


  1. Countertop and sink

A matte black sink looks great with nearly any existing vanity or bathroom cabinet.  Transforming your space from boring to bold can be done by installing a matte black vessel sink in your bathroom. Some people love to contrast a matte black sink with or counter top with a white vanity for a super stylish look. Paired with a tall matte black faucet, it’ll instantly give your space a refined and luxurious feel. Adding black handles or knobs to your existing bathroom vanity is another way to bring everything together with the matte black design. Swapping out your vanity hardware is an easy project you can tackle yourself. Matte black handles and knobs are available in modern, transitional, and traditional styles, giving you many options to replace your old hardware with.

  1. Lighting fixtures

If your bathroom has dated lighting fixtures, changing to matte black pendants or even sconces is a great and inexpensive way to incorporate this timeless trend in your space. Since bathroom lighting can be tricky, a pendant light with a soft bulb is always great.
