THEY TAKE THE BLACK TAPS

Yes, there is life beyond chrome! How many years of monopoly have you had in bathroom and kitchen faucets? It is not that it disappears. It will always be with us, however, the trend is to give way to other finishes such as black , a total trend, both in the bathroom -in all the taps- and in the kitchen. You already know that black is fashionable in decoration.

ALSO IN THE BATHTUB

Generally the bathtubs are white so the contrast with the black of the taps is spectacular. The black taps will give a modern touch to the bathroom. This is from Bossini Cristina.

YES TO THE BLACK IN THE KITCHEN

Most of the firms already have taps in their catalog that go beyond chrome. Add a note of color to your sink without sacrificing modern features, even if it is a retro design like this Ikea tap.

GOLD, A NOTE OF SOPHISTICATION

The traditional chrome of the faucets is pushed aside to give way to the faucets in gold, the luxurious and sophisticated touch that will change the kitchen completely. You can combine with handles in the same finish or give it all the prominence. Of course, the white or integrated appliances, but never in exposed steel.

AGED GOLD, THE MOST RETRO

When the gold loses its shine and ages and darkens, the more retro and vintage side of this finish appears. It is perfect for old line taps, like this one from Tres Grifería.

IN ANY TYPE OF TAP

Floor-standing or wall- mounted versions, the taps are reinvented in finishes other than chrome in any version so that you can only imagine your dream bathroom and can carry it out. This wall-mounted faucet in gold is by Bossini Cristina.

TAPS, THE CENTER OF DECORATION

When the faucet acquires so much prominence in the bathroom or in the kitchen, it is best to incorporate other details in the same finish. For example: the soap dispenser and the towel racks in the bathroom and handles and a fountain in the kitchen. In this bathroom, the luxury effect has been enhanced with golden tiles .

FAUCETS IN COLOR, EASY TO CLEAN AND MAINTAIN

Most of the taps are made of brass or steel, although their final finish (what you see) is gold, rose gold, copper, black, white or color. Do not think that its cleaning differs from what you would do to a chrome faucet. Below we give you very effective tips.

ALL TO THE WHITE

Now you can play all white in a bathroom or kitchen, taps included. What do you think of this Hansgohe washbasin tap in white? There are brands that do not manufacture their entire faucets in the same material, but rather combine with other details in levers or keys.

WITH HINTS OF COLOR

This is an example of combining materials to incorporate a note of color. The Ritmonio Colors series uses resins in the faucet handle, available in a wide variety of colors.

MATTE OR BRUSHED FINISH

When chrome or any other finish loses its shine it is called matte or brushed. In this last finish you can even see scratches on the surface of the tap . In the image, tap by Ramon Soler.

IMITATION TO OTHER FINISHES

Technology makes it possible to customize a faucet in the finish you want. For example, give it the appearance of marble , like this design by Griferías Galindo. Thanks to Luxcover by Galindo finishing technology it is possible to choose the finish that best suits your project.

IN ROSE GOLD

Delicate, sophisticated and luxurious at the same time. This is the Insignia de Roca faucet in a rose gold finish. It is perfect for those who want a metallic touch different from shiny chrome but are not gold.

IN FULL COLOR!

Purple, red, pink, green … choose the color for your bathroom taps! It is the Tres Grifería proposal, possible with the Study Colors series. Remember that the finish is not incompatible with water-saving solutions or anti-scald systems (which allow you to limit the maximum desired temperature).

If until now we were used to seeing only kitchen and bathroom faucets in chrome finish, the chrome is going to end! Well, this traditional finish won’t really go away, just now it’s not the only one. Most of the faucet firms offer models in different colors and finishes such as gold, rose gold, black or white, as well as vibrant colors for the most daring. The matte or brushed finish adds to the shine and all so that you can design a bathroom or kitchen to your liking.
