Trend Alert: Black Flatware
We are seeing a huge interest for Black Flatware recently! Regardless of whether you’re a regular entertainer for friends and family, black flatware is a stylish option for even everyday meals. Updating your flatware can completely change your dining room or kitchen table set up! Let’s take a closer look!
What is Black Flatware?
Black Flatware is typically made from stainless steel like any other flatware sets, but is coated with an additional black layer. This coating is vacuum packed in order to cover the entire piece of cutlery. Black flatware sets are available in a variety of designs and styles to suit any interior and dining table styling!
Why we love it!
We love using black flatware because it’s totally unexpected! While these sets are fun for using when entertaining at home, you can use them for everyday use too. Instead of using the classic silver or gold flatware, black gives a completely different look that is stylish and modern.
How to use black flatware
There are a few ways you can use black flatware in your home.
Our favorite way to use black flatware is for special occasions and when entertaining with guests. In a similar way to using traditional silverware, black flatware could be used instead as a modern alternative. Use black flatware to finalize the dining table styling.
Alternatively, you can use black flatware everyday! Switching up your flatware is a great way to give a new lease of life to your table settings.
What to watch for.
As with any great interior design trend, there are some considerations to take into account before investing in and using black flatware in your home.
Black flatware is generally coated to give it its color, so you should avoid using wire brushes or hard sponges to prevent scratching. It is recommended that for longer term use (everyday) they should be hand washed. Soaking flatware for long periods of time can also cause damage.
Depending on the brand or company you purchase from and how you intend to use the flatware, will influence the level of care required for this type of flatware. Make sure to read the care guide for products carefully before purchasing.
Ways to make this trend last in your home
Adding a bar cart to your home is a fantastic way of storing your favorite drinks (whether they be alcoholic or not) while adding a flair of your personality. There are many ways you can make this trend last for many years.
Firstly, it is important to consider where the bar cart will be used and explore the other finishes already used here. Do you have gold accents or another metal finish? This could inform the finish of the bar cart you choose for the room.
Next you should consider what shape you prefer. Bar carts are available in all sorts of shapes and sizes, and to make this trend last in your home, you should choose one that you can continue to use year after year. If you prefer timeless design, then choose a rectangular style bar cart. Or if you like to have contrasting decorative features in your home, a specialty shape like circular, could be for you!
Above all you should choose a bar cart that you absolutely love, and will continue to love for many years to come, even if you move home or redecorate. Keep this in mind when shopping!
