Trends in Tapware – #HIT

When looking at ways to decorate your bathroom last week, we touched ever so lightly on tapware and the change it can bring to your space. This week we are going to look a little more closely at the types of tapware available, and the current trends.

Tapware Styles and Trends

Black & Rose Gold Tapware

Black and Rose Gold are seriously hot right now, either individually or together. Just about all plumbing shops are stocking both and plenty of display homes are sprouting new black or rose gold tapware as well.



There is a new trend emerging with minimal bathrooms making a comeback. These include fittings such as tapware that is appearing now with sleek minimal lines. Think clean and no fuss. A great bonus for this style is simple cleaning, which is a great positive in anyone’s books.



Traditional is so hot right now in our household! We have chosen a clawfoot bath with an old English exposed bath tapware, and similar in the shower and on the vanity. These new products have all the conveniences of modern tapware, with the style and charm of yesteryear.



Contemporary tapware takes a modern look at classic styling. While embracing clean lines and uncomplicated style, contemporary tapware is a little warmer than it’s minimal cousin.



When thinking luxury, think indulging your senses, visiting a day spa or just relaxing. Rain shower heads and soft lines. The ultimate in indulgence and relaxation.



There are so many choices to be made when choosing for your bathroom, it is very helpful to have a theme to assist you with your choices and to keep the continuity in your space. All of the items I have chosen today are from Reece, who we work with all the time. We find they have a broad range of quality items to choose from, however there are many other suppliers you could purchase from.

Last week on #HIT Sarah from Tomfo linked up her DIY Glass Greenery Art in a Flask. This is a really simple but effective idea that would work beautifully in a bathroom.
