All that glimmers
2017 saw brass and gold taps rise in popularity, however, 2018 sees a return of more traditional silver and chrome fixtures in the kitchen. These tones deliver a slick industrial feel and can work with a variety of different styles from rustic farmhouse kitchens, to more sophisticated modern designs.

Matte is back
In stark contrast to their sleek chrome and silver counterparts, matt fixtures are also making a kitchen comeback. Whether they’re paired with aged timbers, or stone countertops, matt tapware can give your kitchen a stylish twist. If the matt look is still a little too adventurous for your tastes, you can also look at a brushed finish which is a subtler take on the matte trend.
