Being of a flat appearance, matt black finish has a wonderful softness and blur to it, that absorbs light and smoothens the curves, accentuating the outline and form over other design details.
You will spot a black lever from the distance!
In our industry matt black raised the door hardware to new levels of distinction and brought its prominence back. Hardware has again become an integral and noticeable part of the space.
We often get asked about whether one should choose something a bit more complementary like satin chrome instead of black. Begin your hardware selection project with asking yourself the following question: Do I want the door hardware to be a feature?
If yes, go with the matt black finish if you enjoy simplicity and restraint, with visually striking, bold and contrasting elements accentuating the space.
Black hardware is a great way to introduce a bit of a visual equilibrium, if you already have other fixtures in that colour - it will help create cohesion and a ‘conversation’ between elements of materiality in the space.
The greatest thing about matt black finish is its unexpected ubiquitousness in décor – many unnoticeable elements are black. Think of pendant cords, electronics, an office chair in your home office or kitchen appliances – if you don’t have a stainless-steel toaster, chances are it’s a black one!
With so many universal applications, decorating your home with matt black door hardware is an effortless project with high gains.
