Sometimes it seems as though people’s entire kitchens must be enrobed in stainless steel as if they base their conceptions on walking through the house ware section of basically any home goods store. Everything from trash cans to wine racks seems to not only come in stainless steel, but the current trend is not limited to stainless steel wine racks. The black wine rack, for instance, is one of increasing popularity.
What you Should Know About a Black Wine Rack
Kitchen materials are not the only thing that is changing in modern kitchens. For instance, another major difference in American kitchens is that of the inclusion of European things such as knife blocks full of Henckels and many bottles of wine stored in a wine rack. The black wine rack is perhaps the most popular for this particular fixture, and although it is available in stainless steel as well, somehow people don’t seem to want stainless wine racks. Therefore the black wine rack seems to be the preferred choice when it comes to this kitchen feature.
This causes a very basic problem for people who are furnishing or re-furnishing their kitchens. It seems that everyone easily goes for the stainless steel versions of virtually everything, but people somehow think twice about bypassing a black wine rack, for instance. Some argue that stainless steel for a wine rack looks too industrial, and it is these people who usually opt for the black wine rack.
Indeed, stainless steel kitchens look more like restaurant kitchens, since a wine rack is sometimes placed in the kitchen and sometimes placed in the dining room, on display, a black wine rack just might be a more versatile choice since a stainless steel wine rack would most certainly look out of place in most dining rooms.
Furthermore, there is no rule that a black wine rack can not be incorporated into an almost entirely stainless steel kitchen. In fact, this could be the next wave of the future. The contrast between polished stainless steel appliances and black iron accents could be a very tasteful combination of matte and shiny.
In order to successfully execute such a tasteful contrast, be sure to dry your stainless steel appliances after wiping them or washing them; it’s the water droplets that cause all those pesky spots on everything that’s stainless steel. Every black accent you add is one more thing that you will not have to worry about polishing dry, which is a big sigh of relief to anyone with an almost entirely stainless kitchen from countertops to fridge to mixing bowls.
