In this blog, we explore the virtues of the rising trend of black and why the colour has become the go-to choice for many homeowners with outdoor entertaining.

Timeless Elegance
Black is a timeless colour that exudes sophistication and elegance. It effortlessly adds a touch of luxury to any outdoor or alfresco space. When it comes to BBQing, black is the epitome of refined style. It creates a sleek and contemporary look that can effortlessly blend indoor/outdoor aesthetics. Black BBQs, rangehoods, bar fridges & complete kitchens now have the ability to elevate the overall aesthetic of any outdoor space and make a bold statement.

Versatility and Adaptability
One of the key advantages of black outdoor appliances is their versatility. Black is a neutral colour that complements a wide range of other colours, making it easy to integrate into the outdoor decor. Irrespective of whether your outdoor space features merbau decking, travertine stone, rendered concrete or brickwork, a black BBQ or Outdoor Kitchen can seamlessly blend in or serve as a focal point. Black also has the power to create a striking contrast with other colours, like lush green grass or clear blue skys, adding depth and visual interest to the space – not to mention the perfect option to entertain at home.

Minimalist & Contemporary Appeal

In recent years, there has been a shift towards minimalist and contemporary design aesthetics. Black appliances align perfectly with these trends, with many of the best BBQ manufacturers moving towards black appliances with clean lines and sleek understated looks. The minimalist appeal brings a sense of order and simplicity to the outdoors space they occupy. 

Easy Maintenance & Durability
Black appliances often come with a sleek, smudge-resistant finish that not only enhances their aesthetic appeal but also makes them easier to clean and maintain. Fingerprints, smudges, and stains are less noticeable on black surfaces compared to stainless steel counterparts.
