I don’t know about you guys but I’ve been noticing some really fantastic developments in bathroom trends. The amazingly talented Karen Knox of Making Spaces wrote a brilliant post at the end of 2017 about the possible alternatives to chrome brassware in the bathroom . In this post she explained that matt black and brass were the top choices, but that the market was taking a while to catch up and actually offer these alternatives. Karen rounded up some of the options that were already available and today I wanted to share some new options with you from leading bathroom brand Crosswater.
Matt black is a favourite option of mine and I actually opted for a matt black tap in my kitchen. Should I opt to change my bathroom taps in the future, matt black would probably be the frontrunner. I’m a particular fan of the way that matt black brassware does not fall victim to messy fingerprints like shiny chrome or stainless steel does and doesn’t need cleaning as often to look good. Also it looks very sophisticated and wears well.
The new matt black addition to Crosswater’s MPRO range is extremely attractive and the complete collection of bathroom mixers, valves, and showerheads means there is no need to compromise with the look you are after. Crosswater has covered all bases here so now there is no problem if you are going for the matt black bathroom look. I particularly like it when matt black brassware is paired with a steel-framed window style shower screen.
You can see from my bathroom inspiration board on Pinterest that I’m pretty taken with these steel framed window style screens and matt black brassware at the moment.
Below you can see the complete MPRO range from Crosswater in matt black. It’s super sleek, right?
Another addition to the MPRO range is the brushed brass option. Brass took over from copper as the metal of the moment last year and has become a firm favourite in interiors. All manner of accessories now come in brass and furniture is increasingly seen with brass detailing. Well, now brass has made its way into the bathroom too and boy does it look good? Again the fact that it is brushed brass means there isn’t the issue with smearing or fingerprints, which is a bonus, especially if you have kids. I’ll leave you with a few more images of the brass range. Do let me know in the comments what you think about these two new finishes to the MPRO brassware range.
