Inspiration… the Beauty of Black

Since the early days of range cooking, black has been the definitive finish. OK, there was not much choice a century ago, when blackened cast iron was really the only option but even now, when colours abound, there is something about the solidity and adaptability of black which makes it currently the most popular choice of colour for cookers in the UK.

Always in Fashion

A black range cooker can be the focal point of a kitchen without necessarily dominating the room. It need not be be dark and heavy - used alongside cream or ivory units, slate grey and metallic finishes, the effect can be quite stunning and very sophisticated. Suited to both contemporary and traditional cookers, some manufacturers (e.g. Mercury’s Liquorice and Ash Black) provide a choice of gloss or matt finishes to allow a little subtlety. Rangemaster’s traditional Classic, Classic Deluxe and Kitchener ranges come in Matt Black, with Gloss used on other models in the range. Whether matt or gloss, with chrome or brass trim, a black range cooker is something that will always look good - even if you decide to change your decor later on.
