07 May DESIGN TREND: Feature Tapware
Although seemingly insignificant, tapware has an important role in kitchen design. Besides carrying out a vital function in the culinary zone, tapware makes a finishing touch; an accent piece that rounds up the impression. The approach of choosing kitchen tapware is no different than deciding perfect accessories to match your outfit. Tapware needs to complement and uplift the kitchen style without standing out too much.
For a while, we perceived kitchen tapware solely as a necessity and a practical feature, while chrome and stainless steel made common choices. Lately, we can see kitchen tapware as feature pieces, bringing distinct accents and diversity to kitchen design.
Matte black tapware brings refinement and understated elegance to any kitchen style. This fairly new trend that is already a classic, adds a perfect amount of contrast and sharpness to all white kitchens while subtly modernising traditional ones, giving them a cutting-edge tone. Matte black is a sophisticated statement and not a trend we will tire of quickly.
If you want to keep it simple and refined, but with a touch of glam and traditional vibe choose gold tapware. The warming nature of gold will add a soft and classy tone to the kitchen style.
Crisp and delicate, white tapware will blend seamlessly in minimalist and modern kitchens. White details make great accents in kitchen areas as they reinforce neatness and perfection, however, when paired with rich textures they serve as a balancing detail.
Copper is trendy, warm and eclectic; it adds interest to the space. Because of its bold character, copper tapware should be balanced out with copper hardware and lighting features.
