Diving Deep into the Flat Black Decorative Hardware Trend

Over the last few years Flat Black has become the decorative hardware finish of choice for kitchen and bath designers across North America – and it shows no signs of slowing down. Typically paired against light cabinetry, the popular high-contrast finish has been seen everywhere from luxury design publications to the homeowner’s Pinterest feed. But what is it that makes this finish so alluring? Read on as Top Knobs dives deep into this popular trend, and some of our favorite ways to use it!
