Kitchen Trends: A Look at Black Stainless

Share This Post

While stainless steel finishes took the market by storm in the 1990s, another sleek, stylish finish has been making its way onto the kitchen appliance scene: black stainless.

Black stainless might sound like a contradiction, but it actually has a few unique benefits that may make it perfect for your kitchen.

Smudge- and Fingerprint-Resistant

One of the main selling points of black stainless appliances is the claim that they are both fingerprint- and smudge-resistant, which is an advantage over traditional stainless. Where traditional stainless appliances will show fingerprints, smudges and water spots, black stainless will not.

Coordination Capabilities

Not only does the color of black stainless give it a classic and sleek look, it also coordinates with many cabinet and paint colors. You can even mix black and traditional stainless if you don’t want an entire suite in the same color. It does work best with medium and dark color schemes and modern styles.

Appliance Suite Availability

Another advantage of black stainless is its suite availability. Though there are only a handful of brands offering appliances in this finish, they are available in suites that include multiple appliances. Suite availability means you can outfit your whole kitchen in black stainless if you so choose.
