Posted by on Sep 15, 2012 | Leave a Comment

Modern bathrooms need a little shine, and chrome provides the ideal amount of sparkle. You can include chrome in many surprising ways, from taps to bathroom accessories, vanity units to heated towel rails, each element comes together in an attractive way.

Riva square bath taps

Stylish Taps

Bathroom manufacturers offer a wide range of contemporary styles, ideal for modern bathroom renovations. Even standard chrome taps give your bath and basin a dash of shine. Consider whether you want to make a statement with your taps or allow your bath to take centre stage, and choose accordingly.

Striking square taps stand out in shining chrome, while classic cross handle taps look even better with a chrome plated finish. Invest in a pair of taps that will stand the test of time with grace and beauty.

Shower Enclosure Accents

Although frameless shower enclosures help to create an open feeling in your space, a chrome frame will add visual appeal to the room. Look for showers with interesting shapes and tailored frames for a masculine feel, or a more decorative shower for a classic, feminine design.

Echo the shower enclosure throughout your new bathroom, using chrome mirrors, light fixtures and vanity hardware to present touches of chrome. Set against a backdrop of gloss black or stark white, chrome gives your bathroom design an upscale charm.

Chrome heated towel rail

Towel Rails

Today’s towel rails thrive on multitasking, operating as a heater as well as a towel organizer. And chrome towel rails can be mounted on the wall like artwork, to be marveled at and admired. Check out angular styles from manufacturers like Kudox or the various curved styles available. Both provide excellent performance and capture that stunning allure of chrome.

Don’t forget to include splashes of chrome in the bathroom design details, such as chrome soap dishes, chrome-plated or chrome-coloured furniture and shining door pulls. Balance that glitz with plenty of solid colours in a matte finish, and throw in a pattern that includes glints of silver to tie it all together.

This combination creates a bathroom design that will fit seamlessly into modern life, providing a durable, low maintenance finish with superb styling. Add chrome to your bathroom renovation and capture the atmosphere of a contemporary bathroom.
