Kitchen & Laundry
PVD tapware can seem daunting to decorate with but when paired/styled with the right materials, it can complement and add elegance to any bathroom or kitchen space. Revamp your interior by styling the space with matching accessories or even consider complimentary colours, accents and textures. Often small items create the biggest impact - just like pairing jewellery.
Not sure where to start? Here’s a quick guide on how to style each of our PVD finishes:
Chrome is a timeless and functional finish which pairs well with most interior design styles. This kitchen example pairs a chrome sink mixer with a white marble benchtop, glossy white tiles and white cabinetry. Chrome tapware matches well with black accessories to create a modern feel. Consider adding texture to your space with waffle tea towels and handmade ceramics to accessorize.

When styling black tapware, consider using black accessories like a black framed mirror. In this bathroom, gold accessories pair well with black tapware. The use of black tapware complements a light and bright white tiled bathroom which provides a contrasting, eye-catching statement.
