Design Corner: Black is the new black :


Black is definitely the new black when it comes to the latest trends in bathroom and kitchen fittings!

The classic black and white palette has been used to accentuate bathrooms and kitchens for what feels like centuries (but in truth is only really decades). Now with the innovative and exciting addition of matte black fittings, kitchens and bathrooms around the globe are rejoicing.

There are a number of ways to incorporate this design trend into either your kitchen or your bathroom and regardless of how you do, the black is sure to be a stand out feature.

Black tapware can look seriously stunning when accompanied with the warm tones of other on trend materials such as wood, brass and copper. For instance by adding warm wooden cabinetry, sleek black tapware is softened, creating a modern but inviting space.

Using the addition of black tapware/shower heads against a classic marble creates a visually impressive feature as the contrast highlights both beautifully. And if simple black and white feels too cold for your space, create some warmth by adding brass or copper pendant lights, mirrors and accessories.      
Finally, you can always mix black with black. By combining black sinks or cabinetry with black tapware an ultra sleek and modern look is achieved.
