Last year, we renovated our bathroom in our victorian semi. We were conservative in its design for two reasons; one it is the only bathroom in the house that doubles as the laundry, so it needs to be functional, easy to keep clean, and be spacious enough to move around in, despite all the amenties and storage that we had to get in there. Secondly, this house isn't our forever house, and one day we will sell. I wanted to appeal to a broad range of tastes, and by keeping it white, gray and minimal we have done just that. I have hung an Angus & Celeste white Jelly Planter from the roof in the open plan shower, which adds some life and colour with its beautiful String of Pearls waterfall.
So this brings me to the start of a series of posts on bathroom tapware; an important, functional and aesthetic component of a bathroom renovation that can sometimes come as a surprise to the budget.
This post is dedicated to basin tap sets. I visited ReeceRozelle on my walk home today to have a look at what's in at the moment....
The Australian RAM range is super cool with it's Luka mixer coming in 8 vibrant colours.
I couldn't bet the Milli Axon tap with it's slender conformation and sleek combo of chrome and matt black. Yep, it's a winner - actually quite literally a winner; the Phoenix Tapware creation won the 2014 iF Product Design Award, one of the world’s most prestigious design awards. No wonder Kyal and Kara from 2013 The Block Fans vs Favs picked this style for their main bathroom.
Nobili and Gessi's bold and contemporary designs just continue to remind us the Italians know how to make sexy tapware.
If you are after a more traditional look, but still want to keep the look 'present', the Dorf range is what to look at. The Dorf Capella and the Dorf Pearl wall mounted basin sets with their gentle curves and subtle minimalism fit this bill.
Overall, I'm loving matt black finishes, and wall mounted taps - these are my favourites...
