What Houzz contributors are saying:
1. Striking tapwareA bathroom uses around half of the average home’s water, so it’s important to select water-saving mixers and showerheads when building or renovating. Apart from the practical and environmentally friendly aspects, take time to get the right style. It’s easy to be ‘safe’ and predictable but why not add mixer tapware that adds an attractive accent to the bathroom’s interior? Here, matt black elements make a strong statement without being gaudy or overstated. And for real continuity, the tapware range can be replicated in the kitchen and laundry.
Black can be overpowering if used in large quantities, so balance the dark tone with plenty of light, bright textures and surfaces. However, black will certainly pack a bold punch and liven up a simple space.Why we’re going nuts for black tapware
1. It’s sleek and stylishMatt black tapware looks smooth and sleek, boosting style cred in any bathroom or kitchen. The inherent simplicity of a streamlined black tap against a contrasting neutral backdrop is just about as stylish as you can get. Think of the air of sophistication that a little black dress or a black-tie suit exudes. Black is forever in style!
