Black taps have gone from being a practical option to a décor hit. Because they're in a neutral colour, they pair perfectly with white, blue, grey, green or beige hues, and can be used to update your bathroom interior design without embarking on any major refurbishments.
Incorporating black taps in your bathroom or kitchen décor scheme adds a sense of depth between the zones. And if you couple them with natural textures, organic fabrics or natural wood flooring, an even more stylish look comes guaranteed. We've listed some designer bathroom options with Noken's black taps to give you some bathroom renovation inspiration and stunning combinations you can refer back to.
Grey and black in perfect harmony in the bathroom
Painting your walls grey or using the same colour ceramic tiles (grey Park Lineal by PORCELANOSA or the Aged Dark XTONE mineral compact collection) will add a distinguished feel to your bathroom. If you want to make the room brighter, you could use different shades of grey together (lighter and darker hues) with low wooden furnishings or a black shower tray such as Slate Negro Mate by Noken (composed of 60% recycled white marble and 30% eco-resin) with Round taps in the same finish. The PORCELANOSA Group brand has refined its matt black tap designs further with the handcrafted Finish Studio aesthetic, adding a more realistic look to every piece.
Zen interior design scheme in black and wood
Opting for natural wood flooring, or even cladding your walls in the same material (Liston Oxford Cognac wood-effect ceramic tiles and Liston Madera Roble by PORCELANOSA) will give your bathroom a more harmonious, ordered feel. The Round shower in a matt black finish follows this aesthetic line, as do Oxo taps by Noken, winner of the 2020 iF Design Award, with simple lines and a sustainable composition (they limit water consumption to a maximum of 5l/min and come with a cold-start mechanism to promote energy saving). Both will lend your bathroom a sense of elegance, which in turn enhances the warmth of wood.
Black and white never goes out of style
Combining black and white is always a winner in the bathroom. Pairing white marble worktops or natural stone washbasins with black taps or black floor tiles makes for incredibly elegant bathrooms. Designing your entire bathroom in black is another striking décor scheme. You can use white lacquered baths and other elements or gold mirrors to dampen the severity of the colour.
All black bathrooms
100% black bathrooms are already trending in interior design. You might think this aesthetic sounds a little too gloomy, but if you combine the colour with gold and copper accents or wood flooring, the results are wonderfully stylish.
This bathroom is a fine example of all black interior design, with the minimalist Round Negro Mate taps by Noken and a rectangular mirror. Para darle más luz a este tipo de espacios puede revestir los baños con cerámica de acabado negro (colecciones Karachi o Liem de Porcelanosa) incluyendo la grifería Square Negro Mate de Noken
y añadirle perfiles retroiluminados en las esquinas de las paredes (Pro-light y Pro- Skirting LED de Butech) para ganar profundidad.
