“For those that have not remodeled in some time, adding black to your home may seem a radical change,” says Ted Roberts, our Style and Design Chief. “Though it’s a departure from the brass and nickel finishes of the recent past, matte black really is a finish that effectively coordinates with a variety of colors and textures.”
