Back in Black bathrooms

Is black Bathware bad or beautiful?

Black – it never seems to go out of fashion.

From a little black dress to black tie events and more, black has a special place in style.

But black in the bathroom?

When it was originally released, black bathrooms, tapware and accessories made people more than a little sceptical.

Customers were quite reluctant to include black tapware in their bathroom design because they were thinking it would be a ‘flash in the pan’. Almost a decade on, the trend is still going strong and seems to be getting stronger every season.

Black Beauty

Unlike some of the other coloured tapware (well, anything that’s not chrome really) matte black is easily matched with many other fixtures in your bathroom – think door handles, shower door fixtures, vanity handles, lighting fixtures and a variety of bathroom accessories.

In fact, many leading tapware manufacturers have combined matte black with beautiful colours like rose gold, brushed gold and brushed nickel in order to make these unique colours eye-catching and user-friendly.

Two of the most popular and stunning designs that combine colours and matte black are the gorgeous Phoenix Toi range of mixers and the Greens Textura range.

The Buzz with Electroplating

Another change throughout the Bathware world is another stylish trend in black matte tapware that looks amazing.

The fashion now has turned towards electroplating black matte tapware over powder coating it to create a better looking and higher quality product.

An example of a tapware range that has transitioned from powder coating to electroplating is the Ecco range of black mixers. People love this range for its versatile style. It works well with either round or square styling in the bathroom and the vessel mixer is a perfect match to low vessel basins.

The latest and greatest in the matte black look

There’s a growing selection of tapware in the matte black style.

Innova, Dolce, Moda, Nautica and Nero are just some of the brands offering a lovely array of bathware in black.

It’s certainly a talking point and a stylish way to showcase your bathroom and your good taste.

There’s a real buzz about the new releases in the matte black tapware range from Bathware Direct. These include the latest Fienza bath spouts like their Harmon Waterfall Bath Outlet and the Fresh range of mixers.
