Statement tapware is on trend and having a moment in the spotlight – and we can’t get enough. Here are five reasons why you need statement tap in your bathroom
Why statement tapware should be your new favourite bathroom trend
Attempting to hide or blend in your tapware and fixtures are a thing of the past. This year, we’re seeing a range of different colours from brass gold to matte black that give simple white bathrooms a subtle and sophisticated twist. Your Home and Garden’s editor Shelley Ferguson believes gold or brass fittings and tapware are a great way to achieve a touch of old-world glamour “without seeming over the top”.
Matte black is also rising in popularity, and black shower heads and handles juxtaposed against a plain white tile wall is a particularly effective way to add complexity to a bathroom. As well as looking great, black fittings are a practical choice as they don’t show dirt or watermarks as easily as traditional chrome.
