Matte Black is THE Modern-Industrial Hardware Finish

Matte black. We see it in automobile paint finishes, wheels, furniture, jewelry, and even makeup!

But, kitchen/bath, household hardware?

When I think of matte black, I think of cruise ships, warehouses, barn buildings, and lofts.

Stainless steel has been the latest “modern-industrial” feel-look, but matte black is quickly taking over the spotlight.

We are even seeing it more as the “gothic” look that clients are seeking for staircases.

Why matte black? This design is considered an “edgy” choice because the elements seem to be exposed.

Used widely in lofty spaces with big windows and doors, this choice is now decorating even the smallest of spaces to really pop out any decor…including barn door hardware on pantry doors.

The Drama Queen

Matte black is a stylish and daring finish and because there’s no shortage of drama with industrial modern design, this hardware is a natural fit to tie the entire space together.

It pairs beautifully with the lighting styles and architectural details often found in industrial modern homes”. ~Schlage

This Conroe-Lake house kitchen remodeled by Exclusive Remodeling is a perfect example of that perfect touch that was needed to tie in the outdoors with the in:

What Inspired MATTE BLACK Hardware?

We all see buildings like these popping up everywhere! Gone are brick and mortar facades, and in with industrialized materials and lots of glass!

With exteriors like these, as we think of the future in building…it’s simple, elegant, classy, radiant, bold, defiant, and all the words we can think of that recently exude the personalities in us all.

If YOU are in that mood for contrasts, then matte black is your finish.

With the demand of it rising in design, you can now coordinate your hardware perfectly with everything from your kitchen to the bathroom.

Exclusive Remodeling is located in close proximity to Lake Conroe, Texas, and our Team enjoys working on projects out at the lake!

We’ve conjured up some great ideas for your lake house retreat:

Bunk Beds

Do you have a 3 or 4 bedroom house and it’s STILL not enough for your weekend guests (all the kids!)

Converting just one of those bedrooms into a bunk-bed-wall/s can sleep up to 8+, not to mention the fun going to sleep while telling stories in the dark…perfect for lake weekend getaway memories.

We love this idea that gives the feel of sleeping on a ship cabin.

Farmhouse Sink

Farmhouse kitchen sinks are all the rage…and for a lake house, sure you need that extra sink space for those big family gatherings (and extra dishes).

Perfect for that cabin feel and country look that goes with your surroundings.

Lakeside Decor

How cute is this! Don’t just map out your lake…hang it on the wall.

Most of us have childhood memories of some kind of lake and we take special sentiment as we grow older which is why people choose to buy lakeside property.

We love this decor idea that can be passed on generations to come.

Outdoor Living

Lake houses tend to have huge back patios and porches either next to or not far from the lake.

Screening a porch that is living-room size can be ideal for adding a nice stone fireplace and beautiful outdoor furniture.

Make use of that huge space and enjoy living outdoors (feel the wind)!

Starry Nights

A fun family project out on the lake is a cool fire pit! Spruce it up as you like to enjoy smores, hot dogs, and of course THE STARS!

We love these DIY fire pit ideas on Pinterest.

If you don’t have a lake house, don’t let that stop you from taking these ideas for your home, for that country-weekend feel.

A Design Consultant has visited your home to take a close look at your project, you’ve been given an estimate, everything sounds great…now what?

Material Selection

It is important to figure out your style before diving into your project investment.

After seeing your existing space for so many years with the same color scheme, decor, furniture, it can be difficult to pinpoint what style to choose next…do you go with trend?

What you want? What your family wants? What your friends suggest? Decisions, decisions!

They say a good time to remodel any space is about every 10 years or so, a lot can change in 10 years! Not just trends, but also your taste in decor/style.

It also seems like every year, new styles in flooring, cabinetry, paint, and hardware come out, making it even more overwhelming to choose.

Showroom Choices

Once you’ve made it into our showroom or our referred vendors’ Houston area locations, we like to suggest your very own “vision board” photo to take home and recapture any choices you may have made to envision it in your space before making any final decisions.

In one image you can pull together the floor tile, cabinet color, shower floor/wall tiles, mosaic accents, counter-top choices all the way to the details including hardware.
