Contemporary Tapware Trends for 2017

One of the easiest, fastest and most cost-effective ways to freshen up a tired bathroom or kitchen, is by updating the tapware.

Phoenix Tapware designs & creates beautiful on-trend tapware right here in Australia. So, in less time than it takes for the average person to get ready for an evening out, these areas can be given a make-over and a whole new lease on life too!

Fixtures and fittings act like jewellery for the bathroom and kitchen and as such should make a statement. There are some amazing styles, and finishes on the market so if you want to give your home a stylish boost without making a big investment, replacing outdated tapware is the way. Plus, it’s always a smart investment to choose well-designed, quality pieces that add value to the home.

Tapware has evolved into an array of gorgeous metallic finishes, along with the ever popular matt black tapware, and while chrome still has its place, the hottest next big thing for 2017 is going to be brushed nickel and gunmetal.

These new finishes work beautifully as highlight accents that really ‘pop’ against the simplicity of a neutral, organic finishes palette and create a distinctive contemporary edge that’s quite unexpected.

If you love the sleek, sophisticated appearance of smooth textures and clean lines you will adore the stunning new range of contemporary tapware by Phoenix Tapware that are not only beautiful and affordable, but are also of the highest quality and make a strong statement.

Matte Black is a confident, stylish statement that complements simple, monochromatic environments as well as flourishing in bold and colourful surroundings. If pairing with a lot of white, try using a touch of timber to tone down the styling.

This finish is characterised by its warm, soft metallic appearance and brushed lines on its surface. It’s a more toned down look that pairs well with white, as well as light coloured granite or marble. This finish is extremely flexible as it works well in both modern and traditional spaces.
