Others in the industry specifically point to matte black as one of the most stylish kitchen trends of the moment. Apartment Therapy states, “Being a neutral, black is never not in style, but it’s sure enjoying a moment in the spotlight right now—especially in its subtle matte form. One place in particular that we’re seeing a lot of matte black is in the kitchen. Being as versatile as it is, matte black can be incorporated into an interior in so many ways. It can be incredibly dramatic, can act as an accent, or really ground an otherwise airy space. It’s timeless yet modern at the same time.”
GE Matte Appliances
We love GE’s matte and smudge-proof slate appliances. GE recently debuted their Slate appliance line which they describe as, “Rich and elegant, the stone-inspired Slate finish blends impeccably with today’s materials and colors. The dark matte appearance also naturally hides fingerprints, smudges and dirt, so it’s delightfully easy to maintain.” These appliances are ideal for homeowners who enjoy the appeal of stainless steel but desire something updated, matte, and fingerprint proof. GE Slate Appliances are now also available in Black Slate.

Matte Accent Pieces
We love the idea of incorporating matte black accents in the kitchen, such as this endlessly chic and sleek KitchenAid Artisan Stand Mixer in Matte Black. This versatile mixer is just as much a design piece as it is a functional appliance.

Matte black fixtures are a sleek choice for contemporary and transitional spaces. Kohler offers many faucet designs in matte black, the perfect addition to a fashion-forward kitchen.

While some homeowners prefer the high-gloss shine and luster of shiny countertops, tile, and lighting fixtures, others prefer the soft, flat appeal of matte countertops, appliances, and kitchen accents. If you love the matte movement, 2017 is your year!
