Tailored to the individual, the stunning Matte Black finish was introduced across our entire MPRO Collection as part of a series of innovations for 2018. Designed to create a bathroom space that is as beautifully crafted as it is functional, the new Matte Black surface combines high-end specification with beautifully considered aesthetics to create brassware that stands out. From the classic black basin, single-hole faucets to wall mounted designs, bath fillers and a powerful shower head in two size options, the comprehensive MPRO collection can be mixed and matched to achieve your desired matte black bathroom scheme.


Transforming everyday bathing into an extraordinary experience, UNION takes inspiration from the industrial era and brings it boldly into the 21st century. Intuitive, high performing and built to last, the stunning UNION brassware collection in Brushed Black Chrome is guaranteed to command attention in any bathroom. Responding to the latest trends by combining industrial design with a rich, deeply dark surface, the Brushed Black Chrome finish epitomizes modern luxury and is available in a range of basin, deck or wall mounted faucet designs as well a multi-function shower valve, all with the choice of Lever or Wheel handles.


Choosing a traditional bath in a sleek black finish is a great way to update a classic design in a more modern scheme. Opting for a black bath creates a simple but effective statement, whether embraced alone or accompanied by other elements of bold black in the space. Crosswater London recently launched a beautiful black version of the popular Balthazar Bathtub.


Introduce black tiles to the walls or floors of your bathroom for an ultra modern look. Embracing a monochrome palette ensures timeless style, while hexagon tiles and black grouting provide a trendy touch.

For a confident approach to using black consider taking the color 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.

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