The trend for dark finishes - even down to tiny details - is reshaping hotel interiors with designers specifying the deepest greys and anthracites for ironmongery, fixtures and fittings

Interior designers have been using lots of dark finishes in recent years.

In the luxury hotel market, monochrome room schemes with grey, anthracite and black detailing signal sophistication and create a dramatic, high impact aesthetic for clients and their customers.

It is a look that filters down to the finest of details, including architectural ironmongery where darker styles now dominate.

At one time, stainless steel or nickel handles were the preferred choice for hotel room doors. Then, as darker tones became popular, gold and bronze styles were used for contrast.

Today, designers are specifying matt black lever handles for black door designs - with a knurled effect finish proving particularly popular - to create an ultramodern look.

Its architectural ironmongery range includes black housing for its industry-leading Minifix connector, black and anthracite cover caps for its award-winning Free range of flap fittings and dark-coloured sliding door gear, making it easy for specifiers to create a space where dark finishes dominate.
