Inspired by the resurgence of rich, dark colour palettes across interiors, 2018 saw the launch of a sleek Matt Black finish to the cutting-edge MPRO collection, alongside the brand new UNION range in a refined Brushed Black Chrome option.

Dark bathrooms with a confident approach to colour are gaining popularity and promise to redefine the modern bathing space.

From solo black taps in an on-trend matt finish to a complete collection of coordinating brassware and bold use of black on the walls, there are many ways to bring this dramatic tone into your bathroom without overpowering it.

Read on to discover our MPRO and UNION finishes in more detail, as well as inspiration for incorporating matt black into other areas of your bathroom design…

Matt Black Paintwork

For a confident approach to matt black, consider taking the colour to the walls of your bathroom to create a dark, dramatic setting. Pair with black brassware or accents of gold, natural wood and plenty of greenery to set the scene.

Matt Black Accessories

Providing a contrast to white tiling or paintwork on the walls, accessories are a great way to explore subtle inclusions of the matt black trend. From towel hooks to storage ladders and large circular mirrors framed in black, these accessories complement matt black brassware for a cohesive design scheme.
