Amazing Modern Black Faucets and Hardware You'll Love
I can’t contain myself… I am so excited to be building my own home!
There are so many things I love and I have been pinning on pinterest like a wild woman to store up all of my inspiration.
If you know me, you know I love contrast. For my new home I am planning to play up that love by incorporating lots of dark colors, including black, to accent the design of the space.
In my planning I have without a doubt spent the most amount of time thinking and planning my kitchen. I am really excited to incorporate black because it is not something my clients often choose.
With all this swirling around in my mind, I had to share my inspiration and talk about some of my favorite modern black faucets and hardware! Since black isn’t necessarily used as often, knowing how to tie things together can sometimes be tricky.

As have mentioned before, my preference is to have the finish of my faucet, appliances, and hardware to match. If you’re planning a kitchen remodel and considering black stainless steel appliances, updating your stainless or chrome faucet with a matte black faucet and swapping out brushed nickel or chrome cabinet hardware for matte black hardware can be an awesome way to tie the space together.
In a bathroom, switching out an nickel or chrome faucet and shower head for a matte black version will bring a modern feeling to the space. Trust us, it is one of the easiest ways to update a bathroom!
If you aren’t ready to commit to the faucet in a kitchen or bathroom, consider using a black faucet to up the drama on a wet bar. The beauty of a wet bar in a separate area of the home from the kitchen, is that it can have a style all its own!
Black Kitchen Faucets
If you’re looking to update your kitchen with a black kitchen faucet, you’re in luck! Many different brands such as Kohler, Delta, Moen, Kraus, and more have Matte Black finish options for their kitchen faucets.
These modern faucets have pull down or pull out sprayers to make cleaning up a little easier. If you’re looking for even fancier features, check out Delta’s Essa Faucet in matte black with the ability to turn water on and off with just a tap!

Are you asking yourself, “What about the sink? Do I want a black kitchen sink too?”
As with any custom design, that is completely up to you!
As long as we are on the topic, I might as well put in my two cents. For my own personal home or projects, I would say it is not necessary to match the sink and faucet finish if you select an undermount sink.
If it is a farmhouse/apron front, a drop in or a dual mount sink, really any style that will be visible on the countertop then I might consider selecting a sink with a matching black finish. If you decide to go that route, there are quite a few options!

Matching Matte Black Faucets and Matte Black Cabinet Pulls and Knobs
The thought behind selecting matching cabinet hardware when using a black faucet is really to visually balance the space. Using matte black cabinet pulls can be a great way to accent details.
For instance, using black hardware with white or lighter color cabinetry will draw more attention to the hardware as a design feature because of the contrasting color.
Using matching hardware can also help to make sure theres some level of equal distribution of that accent color throughout the room.
If you’re going for an extremely modern space and are using mostly dark colors for cabinetry, using a black faucet and black hardware can help to keep the design cohesive and maintain the modern, simple aesthetic.
