It’s safe to say that black tapware has made a resurgence in the latest design trends. While chrome may be timeless, black tapware has over taken it when it comes to adding a sleek and stylish effect in your kitchen or bathroom. But, why might this be the case?

Back tapware offers that show stopper effect without being overwhelming. It is a unique statement that can bring a level of sophistication to the bathroom or kitchen. Although it is a bold punctuation piece, teamed with the right material it can simply offer that little bit of edge that you may crave. It’s important not to go overboard with black in a bathroom or kitchen as it can be overpowering, but small accents such as tapware can add that little bit of drama that chrome does not offer.


Adding black tapware can be an easy way to transform a kitchen or bathroom. The boldness of black adds an elegant edge to the clean and crispness of a monochromatic bathroom. The contrast between black and whites and chromes brings a stylish modernity that will spice up the room. To create a more cohesive look, or increase this effect, opt to choose matching towel racks and showerheads with the black tapware.

Black tapware also pairs back nicely with timber tones and concretes. When teamed with wood it complements the grain and textures, achieving an edgy but subtle look. This is especially true in industrial-style spaces that are comprised of concretes, natural woods and tarnished metals. The introduction of black tapware offers a bold statement and masculine industrial feel to the room. Again, it is important to manage the amount of black you use.

A drawcard to installing black tapware is that is it easy to maintain and unlike chrome, fingerprints and water marks are less visible. It is important though to avoid harsh chemicals or abrasive materials when cleaning the tapware, as they may mark the surface. Instead opt for soapy water and a soft cloth.
Black tapware is an instant fashion statement that will inject artistic sophistication into your home. Will you be making the switch?
