Is Matt Black the new Grey?

Is Matt Black the new Grey?


Following on from the Mrs Hinch Grey Obsession during lockdown – many of us are now moving onto more the next trend. Instagram has proven to be a great inspiration for many of those lacking the stimulation, whether it be the influx of beautiful faux plants or just a splash of colour around the home through accessories. We have come across a number of white walls, black photo frames and black bannisters. Many have opted for this theme due to the clean, crisp and modern look.


As this is the area leaves lasting impressions

Painting your walls the right shade of white – you’ll need a soft and bright finish,

The black statement pieces can be added through painting your bannister black – remember to sand down the bannister prior to applying paint.

Another great option is updating your internal door – you can paint your internal door to match the interiors rather than replacing the door which can turn out to be quite costly.

Adding on your chosen handles – these come in so many different variations – lever handles, round roses, square roses or placed on a backplate. For more information on how to choose a door handle – please find our interior-handles-and-knobs" target="_blank" rel="noopener">buying guide here.

Cupboards located underneath the stairs are normally neglected – these can be updated with a lick of paint and a new cupboard handle or knob. You may have a lockable door that you use a Matt Black Escutcheon with your lever handle. 


Here is a checklist to help you decide your vision -
