If you haven’t noticed, bathrooms are getting dark and featuring richer finishes as matte black and gold are offering strong style statements and glamour, as well as convenience and cleanability.
Don’t be afraid to mix materials and metals to create a more sophisticated look. The beauty of both black and gold, whether you use them singularly or in tandem, is that they are instantly classic in appearance.
If black feels too dramatic to use on the walls, floor, or ceiling, use it as an accent—faucets, hardware, linens—to emphasise strong shapes.
Make white tiles pop by using charcoal or black grout instead of the more typical white. Tile spacing is lessening, which means the grout acts more as a shadow accent when in a contrasting colour.
While the tried and true chrome, bronze and brushed nickel remain popular, new finishes are gaining ground, including matte black and gold.
The black and gold combination is also quite popular, and darker finishes, in general, are also on the rise.
New shapes from modern to organic are becoming more popular, with shapes evolving to mirror the flow of the water. Transitional modern faucets are also seeing interest, with strong, clean lines and angular turns trending.
