The Little Touches
Faucets - Faucets come in many shades and styles to ensure that they correspond and work with the sink you have. For example, if you have a deep bronze or brown sink, you’ll want to pair it with a faucet that compliments the sink. If you want the faucet to be a dark statement piece on it’s own, that’s also an option. While some prefer to match all the finishes in a room, another option to mix it up with mixed metal finishes such as matte black and polished brass.
Sinks - While many sinks come in a porcelain white or cream, some sinks come in darker tones like bronze, copper, brown, and black, depending on the make of the sink. For example, a vessel sink in dark bronze would add intrigue to your bathroom. A dark sink can be a statement piece if other features don’t draw your eye away from it or overwhelm the senses with too much darkness.
Hardware - Cabinet hardware in darker shades is a small and simple way to add doses of darkness to a kitchen or bathroom. Black handles, knobs or pulls can keep white cabinets from looking too uniform. Another option is to add a complimentary layer of darkness to gray cabinets with darker hardware.
The main goal for all the colors in the room to work together to create a style and feeling that appeals to you. Having different levels and layers where you can add darkness to play off the lighter areas helps the room feel more cohesive and inviting. Whether you like a black/gray scheme or brown, there are endless opportunities to transform your space with intentional dark features.
