The trend toward black accents in both kitchens and bath design is truly taking off. This is not a shiny, contemporary black, but a matted black that beautifully brings texture and depth to the room. It’s easily incorporated through an abundant selection of matte black faucets, fixtures, mosaic tiles and clawfoot tubs newly brought to market. The color adds a sophisticated touch to the room and makes a true statement. While matte black easily skews modern or industrial, it also works well in more traditional or farmhouse settings, giving a current feel to the room.
Here are some simple ways to incorporate Matte Black into your bathroom.
The Moen Genta 8 in. Widespread 2-Handle Bathroom Faucet in Matte Black is new to the market and can replace a dated faucet in flash.
A mirror frame from MirrorMate in Highline Slim Midnight Black or any of the many black mirror frame styles can instantly add that pop of matte black to an existing wall-mounted mirror.

Lighting is an easy update that instantly brings a current vibe to the space. Try this Young House Love Bubble Vanity Light by Shades of Light.
Finally, take a dip into the black trend with Rejuvination’s 5’ Clawfoot Tub or simply paint the base of your existing tub for a whole new look.
Black can also be as easy and affordable to add as a can of paint – update the vanity with a coat of paint, or paint an accent wall in black for a bold new look.
