An air purifier can be placed anywhere: in the kitchen, in the bathroom and even in the living room. But, no matter how beautiful an air purifier is, a white air purifier can be an eyesore.

Fortunately, there are also black air purifiers. These can better match your interior. They are less noticeable and, according to many, are just a bit more stylish. I went looking for black air purifiers and share the best options in this article.

A black air purifier is rare

Many household appliances have a white color. Think of a washing machine, a refrigerator or a freezer. It is not called ‘white goods equipment’ for nothing. A white color has a number of advantages. With a white color you can detect dirt better. In addition, it is also a great advantage for devices that have to deal with temperature differences. Sunlight is better reflected by white equipment.

Air purifiers are also often white. Brands such as Xiaomi, Philips and Shark largely have white air purifiers in their range.

Disadvantages of an air purifier with a dark color

It is not for nothing that air purifiers are often produced in a lighter color. That way you can notice dirt much faster, which is very important with an air purifier. If you don’t clean it in time, it can have a bad effect on the cleaning performance. For example, the CADR rating of an air purifier can quickly decrease.

Interesting black air purifiers

I looked online for air purifiers in a dark color. I quickly found out that black air purifiers are really rare. There are dark gray or nickel-colored air purifiers. Therefore a number of interesting air purifiers in a dark color!

Note: color is not the most important thing about an air purifier

I want to emphasize that in my opinion you should never let a choice be completely influenced by the color of the air purifier. There are much more important factors that you should also look at: think of the maximum cleaning area, the CADR value and functionalities.

Also, the appearance of the air purifier should not affect where you place the air purifier. For example, don’t put it behind something to put it out of sight. This can prevent the air purifier from doing its job properly.
