New Black Stainless Finish from Moen Provides Striking Option for the Kitchen

Oakville, Ontario… Classic stainless with a contemporary twist is what describes the new Black Stainless finish from Moen. Now available on select kitchen fixtures, Moen’s Black Stainless finish has been designed to stand out on its own or blend with existing elements to infuse the kitchen with understated elegance.

“Black Stainless continues to grow in popularity as a finish for kitchen appliances. We wanted to offer a complementary option for faucets so homeowners can create a cohesive look throughout their space,” said Garry Scott, vice president, marketing and eCommerce, Moen Canada. “Because each appliance manufacturer’s finish varies, our team spent countless hours making sure our Black Stainless coordinates with the wide range of choices available on the market. The result is an extremely versatile finish that mixes exceedingly well with a plethora of stoves, refrigerators, dishwashers and other appliances.”

Not only does Moen’s new finish blend well with most Black Stainless appliances, it coordinates with other finishes like traditional Stainless or Brushed Gold to create an on-trend mixed metals look. It also works perfectly with the grey and white tones prevalent in modern farmhouse aesthetics.

“Black Stainless is really the chameleon of finishes, coordinating well with an array of materials and colours in the kitchen,” adds Scott. “Paired with dark cupboards, it blends in for a more muted look, but when mixed with light, white cabinets and countertops, it stands out to add substantial drama to your kitchen.”

Additionally, faucets in Black Stainless will never show how lived in a kitchen may be, thanks to Moen’s innovative Spot Resist technology – which resists fingerprints and water spots for a cleaner looking appearance.

The new Black Stainless finish is featured on several popular Moen® kitchen faucets, including:

  • Align® kitchen collection: The collection features chic, cylindrical, geometric shapes that make a particularly bold statement in Black Stainless. The line offers four different fixture options in Black Stainless: a pulldown kitchen faucet; bar/prep faucet; and an industrial-inspired spring kitchen faucet, which is available in the standard version or with Moen’s MotionSense Wave technology for hands-free control.
  • Sleek pulldown kitchen faucets: This clean modern design adds eye-catching appeal to the kitchen in Black Stainless. Sleek is available as a standard pulldown or with the benefit of MotionSense Wave technology.
  • Nio kitchen collection: The Nio collection offers a soft modern style that pays homage to Scandinavian design with a tall stature that makes a statement at the sink. It’s available as a pulldown kitchen faucet or as a bar/prep faucet.

In addition to the faucets, Black Stainless also is showcased on several complementary accessories, including the transitional and modern Sip beverage faucets, the modern pot filler and select soap dispensers.


MotionSense Wave Technology

Faucets with this touchless technology feature a single-sensor hands-free activation, allowing users to easily turn water on and off with the wave of a hand. Faucets with MotionSense Wave are perfect for when your hands are too full or too messy to turn on the faucet. This functionality also helps to minimize the spread of dirt and germs, as there’s no need to touch the faucet to start the flow of water. Available on the Align and Sleek pulldowns in Black Stainless.

Spot Resist Finish Technology

The Black Stainless finish offers Moen’s exclusive Spot Resist technology, which resists fingerprints and water spots to maintain the brilliance of the fixture.

Each product in Black Stainless features Moen’s lifetime limited warranty* to ensure superior quality.
