Trends in tapware to watch in 2021

Like the right piece of jewelry, the right tapware can elevate and transform the appearance of your kitchen or bathroom, whether you’re planning a complete remodel or a simple upgrade.

If you want to make a statement with your tapware in your kitchen or bathroom and stay current with interior design trends, it’s time to step outside your comfort zone and explore the wide range of styles, finishes, and colors available today. While chrome tapware has long been the go-to option for many homeowners, particularly those on a budget, it’s time to branch out and explore the diverse range of styles, finishes, and colors now available.

Vanessa Katsanevakis, director of Sussex, discusses four tapware trends that we can expect to see more of in kitchens and bathrooms throughout this year and next.

BRASS TAPWARE

While brass tapware is not a new trend, its popularity is expected to increase in 2021 due to its beauty and adaptability.

“We’ve watched this trend gain traction over the last 18 months, and it shows no signs of slowing down,” Kate explains. ‘Wabi-sabi’ or a rustic, beachy aesthetic can be achieved in a room by incorporating living brass finishes, which look especially lovely when combined with other natural finishes such as marble and wood.’

Nickel Brushed

Brushed nickel tapware has a timeless appearance while remaining modern and glamorous, without being as ‘blingy’ as brass or brushed gold tapware. Tapware made of brushed nickel is available in a variety of finishes. Additionally, it works in virtually any environment.

Despite the fact that it will never go out of style, Vanessa believes it will be a staple tapware trend in 2021 due to its striking contrast with terrazzo tiles, which will undoubtedly remain fashionable for the foreseeable future.

” It’s a seamless combination of the two, with brushed nickel being subdued enough not to overpower any textures or patterns it’s paired with.”

WHITE MATTE

Matte white faucets further enhance the timeless beauty of a white kitchen or bathroom. According to Vanessa, “a seamless atmosphere in which all components blend together is an excellent design that reflects the current fashion obsession with toned apparel and neutral hues.”

When paired with black or grey pieces, matte white tapware is especially striking, and the monochromatic design works well in spaces with a more minimalist theme or ambiance.

Despite the fact that this is a design that works equally well in the kitchen and bathroom, Vanessa cautions that when working with a subdued color palette, the architectural lines of a tap become critical, so exercise caution when selecting the suitable shape for your space.

Surface-textured tapware

The use of textured and patterned tapware in both kitchens and bathrooms is growing in popularity, much like the use of earthy, organic hues and natural finishes in interior design. This style is designed to give both kitchens and bathrooms a unique, handmade appearance.

“Textured tapware is only another symptom of the broader trend toward handcrafted and one-of-a-kind,” Vanessa says of the texture trend.

We felt it was fascinating that this year’s ISH tapware display in Germany had a lot of texture, especially on the handles. Tapware in gunmetal grey or chrome, in particular, had finely serrated grooves and knurled surfaces that were particularly apparent. Touchable handles offer a pleasing tactile touch to the tapware and may also be employed to add an unexpected element to a space.”

Rather of attempting harder, consider thinking more intelligently.

As more of us become more health-conscious, the introduction of smarter taps that work harder into our homes will continue to gain favor this year. The advent of intelligent taps that work harder in our homes is one of the primary trends that will continue to gain popularity.

Design and usefulness are inextricably linked in several ways.

Even if you are already aware of the kind of faucet that is most appropriate for your home’s design, you should consider other factors that will assist you in making an educated choice. To begin, the fittings’ dimensions must match the dimensions of the plumbing fixtures, such as a sink or bathtub. Both excessively small and excessively big taps will be unpleasant and will make everyday life more difficult. Additionally, this combination will be visually unappealing.

It is essential that the tapware fixtures suit the bathroom plan style, therefore it is good to consider the many possibilities. Taps are constructed in a variety of shapes and finishes, ranging from around with delicate lines to very geometric designs with sharp edges and flat surfaces. While the former is perfect for classic decor, the latter is ideal for modern bathrooms. The surface of all varieties is normally chrome-plated in silver, however, some faucets have painted components.

Cersanit offers colored varnished faucets – white from the MILLE WHITE collection and black from the MILLE BLACK collection – that add character to your bathroom. Additionally, several versions have chrome-plated components in addition to painted surfaces, which adds to their beauty.

Spouts are critical components of tapware design since their shape and location directly affect the user’s comfort while using them. A spout that is too short may make washing more difficult, while a spout that is too lengthy may cause water to pour around the room. A slightly higher spout will increase the range of the water flow. The VERO and AVEDO collection taps have a tap aerator at the end of a slope spray, which proves to be a very useful water-saving feature. The water flows at an angle, providing for the maximum stream length feasible.
