Bathroom and Kitchen Design Trends
Black taps feature in three particular trends in bathroom and kitchen design - marble, eco chic & monochromatic.
1. The Marble Trend
Marble is a classic finish and it never goes out of style. Having said that, too much marble can make a space seem too traditional. More and more, we are seeing the interesting pairing of marble surfaces with black taps. Designers are choosing black taps reminiscent of the industrial era to stand against white marble walls or surfaces. Industrial taps have skinny piping, right angles and cross-handle faucets. The grunginess of these black industrial taps contrasts the opulence of white marble, making for a perfectly balanced space!
2. The Eco Chic Trend
The next trend is what I call the ‘ecochic trend’. This refers to the combination of warm wood and dark concrete. The ecochic trend is about using natural materials while still retaining a finished look. Too much wood can make a space feel too rustic and too much concrete can make a space feel unhomely. Combining the two creates balance. Black taps lend themselves well to the ecochic trend, especially if they are in a minimalistic shape. Again, it’s all about balance. A smooth black tap contrasts the grain of the wood while still complementing the smooth concrete.
3. The Monochromatic Trend
Black sink taps fit perfectly into a monochromatic kitchen or bathroom. Design-wise, surfaces that are all black are sleek, modern and elegant. However, there are also practical benefits to going all black. For one, everything looks cleaner because no mess stands out. Opting for a black tap makes water residue invisible. You won’t notice any smudges - not even up close!
