Are you planning a kitchen renovation or looking to upgrade your appliances? Or maybe you're struggling to decide on which appliance finish will look best in your kitchen. The good news is, appliance manufacturers now offer a much wider range of styles, colors, and finishes to choose from. Prominently featured on exterior paint colors, living room accents, and cabinet hardware, the color black is practically everywhere within homes—and now, kitchen appliances are embracing the dark side, too! Taking price, practicality, and aesthetics into consideration, black appliance finishes are a no-brainer. Here are the top six things to love about black appliances.
1. Cleaning is Easier
Black appliances, unlike traditional stainless-steel models, are much easier to clean and maintain. Having black appliances will save you a great amount of time spent on cleaning and maintenance since they don't require a special polish to keep them looking pristine. A simple wipe-down of surfaces with a clean microfiber cloth and warm, soapy water is enough to protect and preserve the appliances. In other words, there is no need for abrasive cleaners or scouring pads!
2. Hide Stains and Imperfections
The shiny surface of stainless steel makes it difficult for it to hide anything. Black appliances, however, effortlessly hide dirt, dust, smudges, sticky smears, sauce splatters, and water spots, preventing them from standing out. Since these stains and imperfections are more easily masked, it makes wiping down your appliances an effortless task—or needless altogether.
3. Timeless Flair
Black appliances have an enduring quality. They can be neutral and timeless, which makes them a great choice for homeowners who really want their kitchen design to stand the test of time. Quality appliances are rarely on the cheap side; therefore, you want to make sure to invest in products that will not fall out of fashion in a few years.
4. Add a Striking Contrast
Black appliances, especially black matte appliances, effortlessly suit most kitchen aesthetics because their sophisticated surfaces suit most interior design styles. Regardless of the route you take with your kitchen design, black appliances will not only blend in when you need them, but they will also stand out in style and design when desired. Black appliances also help create a striking contrast with other bright accents, including a white backsplash or brightly painted cabinets.
5. Warm Up a Utilitarian Space
Too much stainless steel can make a kitchen feel cold and commercial. Adding softer black-finish appliances can establish a warm look that is more suitable for cooking spaces. The striking surfaces of these appliances also pair well with textured home accents, including wood, stone, brick, and aged metals. While we agree that refrigerators, cooking appliances, and dishwashers aren’t usually the most glamorous elements of a kitchen’s design, a smooth black finish will make them shine, as the dark, nonglossy surface adds an air of sophistication—not to mention that it makes them easy to care for. So, keep all these wonderful perks in mind the very next time you’re shopping for new appliances!
