When the tap makes the difference in a modern bathroom

It has a fundamental function but also on an aesthetic level the role of faucet in a modern bathroom it is crucial. It is a simple element but with a great ability to shift the balance in the style of the room.

The wide choice of shapes and finishes of a faucet might be confusing, but they shrink when you look at the two necessary combinations: the one with the finishes and the one with the bathroom sink.

The finishes of the faucet

For decades we have been accustomed to finishing chromed which is still the most widespread. But a tap for a modern bathroom can also be declined in other materials that emphasize a contemporary character.

To stay on the brighter choices we find brass or gilded, generally associated with classic style taps, but, if declined in forme minimal, also suitable for a modern bathroom. For those who love the metallic color, the advice is to opt for one brushed finish.

Among the less conventional choices we find the tap in opaque material, typically in black and white. There are also versions colors, but perhaps less suitable to be combined with walls and material surfaces such as stone.

Wall tap

If there is a typical feature for a one tap modern bathroom it is certainly wall installation. A configuration that is chosen both to have the freedom to choose countertop washbasins, to achieve customized plans, covered with your favorite material, but also for the decidedly minimal line.

At the same time, the taps gain a special relationship with the wall finishes, thus creating color combinations interesting with ceramics or resins. But also an application to completely mirrored walls can be imagined.

Mixer and faucet

Another very common trait in the choice of taps for a modern bathroom is the distinction with the mixer. Better to prefer two separate elements rather than integrated, a necessary choice for thewall installation, but loved by interior decorators especially for the formal cleanliness of this solution.

A valid alternative for floor installation is a bow tap with the control placed on the base or, better still, independent. This layout also allows for some compositional freedom on the support surface in the distribution of the elements.
