Black is the new black, and here's why...

Is black the new chrome?

One really great current trend is towards black tapware and accessories. Black mixers, black taps, black showers, black accessories and black heated towel rails and ladders can really make a statement in a modern bathroom. A black mixer or matt black tap set, contrasting with a bright white basin, is a stunning design principle which is being seen more and more in modern quality bathroom renovations.

Make black the hero of your new private retreat, you can even look at a black hand basin, black bath and black toilet. Or anchor whites and colours with the black tapware and accessories to make a more funky statement.

Yes, but will it last?

You bet! Black tapware and bathroom accessories are usually electroplated for a robust finish that will last well. In fact, many black products come with up to 15 years warranty, so the manufacturers are very confident in their products. Also, where highly polished finishes can show fingerprints and water marks, these are much less apparent on matte black.

Cleaning tip - our main tip is not to use harsh chemicals or abrasive cleaners on it. But you know not to use those on any surfaces in the bathroom, right?
