Tapware trends: what you need to consider
A tap isn’t just a tap. For the discerning homeowner, tapware is an object of desire, adding the luxe factor to one of the most functional tools in the home. From classic and vintage styles – to industrial and matte black – beautiful tapware is just what a tired-looking bathroom, kitchen or laundry needs to achieve instant style. Before choosing your tapware, consider its functionality in your home.
Tapware: fashion meets function
If you live with children or elderly people, choose accessible and easy-to-use tapware, and ensure your taps are the right distance from your sink to prevent splash-back during use. Aim to achieve the perfect blend of functionality and style.
Tapware: Stay consistent with style throughout the home
Like all elements of design, there should be a consistency of style throughout your home. For example, your cottage may suit exposed plumbing, while a large modern home lends itself to a more industrial aesthetic such as brushed nickel or gun metal grey. Monochromatic bathrooms featuring matte black tapware continue to be a popular choice, while polished chrome suits any aesthetic. Continuing the same tapware style throughout your rooms will provide a stronger overall feel than a mix of styles.
Matte black tapware
Matte black fittings are an instant fashion statement, the epitome of crisp modernity and the antidote to traditional chrome. Edgy yet elegant, look for versions that are minimally detailed and architectural in shape – be it a spout emerging from a wall, a vintage-styled fitting, or a stunning freestanding bath spout with hand held shower. Matte black tapware keeps visual distractions down, while imparting a strong and masculine vibe.
Gun metal grey tapware
If you’re feeling bold, opt for something different, like brushed nickel or gun metal grey. For inspiration, the Rushy Collection available at Aquaperla is worth checking out. The pull-out spout on the Aquaperla gun metal grey kitchen mixer tap makes life a little easier and a lot more alluring. Its solid brass construction will ensure that it won't rust. It has a WELS approved 6 Star Energy Rating that meets all Australian standards of 4L/M, meaning it won't waste water.
