Matte Black Magic: Kitchen Trend
For those looking to make a statement in the kitchen space, sophisticated matte black sinks and faucets add a touch of drama without upsetting the ambience. From a practical point of view, smudges and finger marks are less visible on black surfaces than they are on polished chrome finishes, making matte black a good looking and low maintenance option.
