Much like the right accessories can really make an outfit, the right fixtures—faucets, showerheads, and even things like toilet paper holders and towel bars—can really make your kitchen or bathroom. One design trend we’re loving right now is matte black fixtures. They add a stylish, modern look with a bit of contrast that will make your space truly memorable. It’s an easy and affordable way to transform the look of your kitchen or bathroom right now without doing a big remodel.

American Standard demonstrates this trend beautifully with the fixtures in their Studio S Collection. Each piece comes in a luxurious matte black, and they have plenty of options to suit all kinds of spaces. For the bathroom, there’s the eye-catching two-handle faucet, the single hole faucet, and the vessel faucet (if your bathroom is set up that way). The collection also includes showerheads and tub faucets that will make bathing a super stylish experience. Even hard-to-find accessories like toilet paper holders and towel rings are accounted for, so you can ensure that everything in your bathroom coordinates. There’s even a robe hook. (We’re firm believers that you can never have too many hooks).

For the kitchen, there’s this elegant, modern faucet with a pull-down spray head and a matching pot filler (if you’re lucky enough to have one). We can’t help but think these would look fantastic with some black knobs and pulls from Schoolhouse Electric. And if you’re a coffee or tea fan, this matte black kettle would make the perfect finishing touch on a beautiful, modern kitchen.

To round out your space, this little black ceiling light would make a great addition to a bathroom or a kitchen and will easily fit in your basic remodel budget. For next to the bathroom mirror, we like this sconce with a hint of gold, or perhaps a pair of these glass globes. And maybe add a few of these little square vases, because having fresh flowers in every room of the house is always a good idea.
