ONE GIANT STEP
Tapware has taken an exciting leap over the past few years, with more and more coloured tapware on the market than ever, it’s easy to get distracted.
We’ll give you some hints and tips on choosing the perfect coloured tapware for your style of bathroom.
There is definitely something to suit every bathroom style, so let’s take a closer look at these beautiful pieces.
If you’ve been looking at any bathrooms in magazines or online over recent times, you couldn’t miss the brushed brass trend.
Brushed brass tapware has boomed recently, and it’s easy to see why. Not only does it add a touch of glamour to any space, it can also pair well with so many designs and styles of bathroom.
Sitting pretty in anything from a modern coastal to a minimal mid-century style bathroom, it’s really very versatile.
As well as being gorgeous, this coloured tapware speaks for itself. It can be as bold or restrained as you like. By pairing it with a neutral, organic palette, it will come across subdued and warm.
Or, give it a try in an all black bathroom. This will highlight the stunning piece and be the contrast that you need against all the dark tones.
You’ll be amazed at how much impact this coloured tapware will have against a sultry backdrop.
Who would have thought that matte black tapware was going to be a hit? If someone had of asked you 10 years ago, to put matte black tapware in your bathroom, you probably would have laughed – a lot! Because up until a few years ago, it seemed that all we had to choose from was polished chrome or brushed chrome.
So the jump to matte black coloured tapware was kind of a big deal! And we couldn’t be happier…much like white, black seems to go with almost anything, and has quickly become a staple colour in many of our homes. So don’t feel that matte black is just for industrial style bathrooms.
No way, it pairs perfectly with a high-end, modern marble bathroom or a quirky retro bathroom.
We know you’ve probably pinned a few images with matte black tapware, but if you’re looking for something else, read on and we’ll delve into some other options.

Another relatively new option, is gunmetal coloured tapware. With a stunning dark grey finish, it hue sits perfectly between nickel and matte black tapware.
This finish is understated and luxurious at the same time. So it’s an amazingly versatile colour that allows you to use it for a hint of detail.
