When it comes to crafting a sleek, modern bathroom, black tapware is all the rage. Monochrome has taken the interior design world by storm, with many seeking a bathroom that uses one base colour before adding tones, hues, and shades of that same colour to create contrast. With an attractive matt black finish and sleek design, it’s no surprise black taps have become a highly sought after feature.

Why should I choose black taps?

Black taps are:

  • Easy to clean
  • Aesthetically pleasing
  • Resistant to scuffs, scratches and fingerprints
  • Adaptable to changing trends

Black taps are perfect if you’re looking to add something unique to your bathroom design. Matte black taps can transform a simple bathroom design into something stylish and contemporary. Taking the virtual interior design world by storm, black tapware is all the rage across Pinterest boards and Instagram feeds. Dipping your toes in this trend needn’t cost the earth. At Wholesale Domestic, we have a selection of sunning matt black tapware at an affordable price. Here are some of our most appealing and budget-friendly options:

Black Basin Taps
