Trendy taps for snazzy spaces.
Like a piece of jewellery, taps add the finishing touch to a bathroom or kitchen. On-trend brass taps add some welcome shine to pared-down concrete bathrooms, or give extra punch to timeless marble bathrooms. They’re not out of place in kitchens either, as this cool new kitchen brand proves. Brass taps offer a cool contrast to modern concrete workshops, and add warmth to minimalist white kitchens. But it’s not all about brass – industrial style, factory-inspired faucets are making waves in both kitchens and bathrooms, giving off cool and edgy vibes.
Here are 6 of the best taps to help put the perfect finishing touch on your kitchen or bathroom.
There’s nothing like a scuffed brass finish and no-nonsense design to create the industrial look and Aston Matthews’ new Acme range, which includes everything from taps to shower fittings, delivers on both counts.
Less finish and a load more character is the name of the game at Quirky Interiors. Its latest finds include traditional, Deco-style and mixer taps in a so-aged-it’s-almost-black brass finish. So that’s how to do the rustic/industrial look like a true pro.
BRUSH IT OFF
How to do bathroom bronze without the bling? Make like Bagno Design and its Zanzibar line. Five of its brassware ranges now feature a matt, light-diffusing hue for glamour without the gleam.
Cross the industrial look with a touch of the fireman’s truck and you get the Union range at Crosswater. Choose fittings in chrome or brushed nickel, with knurled detailing for a tough-luxe edge.
Brass continues its quest for total household domination as Crosswater adds a golden, brushed finish to its MPRO range of taps and showerheads. A sleek Matt Black option also joins the line-up. Both colourways have 3D-feel, textured detailing option.
Turn on a Regulator tap by Waterworks and take a journey back in time. With its cog-like wheel handle, its design references early 20th-century industrial boiler room controls. Opt for the Nickel or Chrome finish if you’re of a more modern persuasion.
