So you've decided to take the plunge and opted for a moody, sophisticated all-black kitchen, only to realize that maybe you still want some element to stand out and break up the intensity of your paint theme. While black looks fantastic on its own and can create a truly impressive interior, sometimes having a pop of color can add dimension and make the dark hue even more engaging. To do so, you don't have to invest in something large that will take away from your atmospheric kitchen color, just a simple piece that acts as a draw for the eye. Like the "Fixer to Fabulous" team did in Season 3 (via YouTube), installing an eye-catching brass faucet for their clients' all-black kitchen space.

One of the main reasons brass looks so good against an all-black backdrop is that it helps smooth the overall effect. When your entire space is dark, it can be overpowering, especially if there isn't a lot of natural light or your illuminating fixtures aren't large enough to open up the room. By incorporating a bit of brass, like "Fixer to Fabulous" stars Dave and Jenny Marrs did, you're automatically creating a softer transition, one that still pushes a moody vibe through, while still making it approachable.

How to incorporate brass in your black kitchen

In Season 3, Episode 4 of "Fixer to Fabulous," Dave and Jenny Marrs chose to pair a brass faucet with their clients' all-black kitchen. Amongst that sea of statement black, the brass added just enough pop of color to the room, along with a little warmth. If you wish to capture a similar vibe for your black kitchen space, there are myriad options, in terms of style, finish, and price.

Depending on the brand and style, some kitchen faucets can cost over $1,000 today, like, for example, Moen's touchless smart faucets. However, you can get the brass look for under $100, too. Like, for instance, Hiendure's long-curve spout faucet in antique brass, available at Amazon for $55. Or, if you'd prefer polished brass, there's Kingston's Victorian-style faucet at Build with Ferguson, which goes for $65.

What's more, the "Fixer to Fabulous" team also added a few other touches of brass to their clients' kitchen, like a stovetop kettle, which not only brought out the brass/gold in the black backsplash, but also managed to highlight the faucet's color even more. You can do something similar with your own removable small appliances or hardware on the cabinets and drawers (which the Marrses also installed).
