We’ve already talked about the trend for warehouse window style shower enclosures, panels and screens and we’ve also taken a closer look at the Open Workshop bathroom by Scavolini and Diesel Living. Both of these are great examples of how the industrial trend is permeating our bathrooms.

This pared-down design that draws inspiration from factories and warehouses has resulted in exposed hardware and piping gaining traction. But industrial influences are particularly evident when it comes to bathroom brassware. You certainly won’t be found lacking in your search for industrial style bathroom taps. There are a number of great options on the market at the moment to help you get the industrial look that is becoming so popular.

The Union range from Crosswater is inspired by iconic industrial forms and renowned Italian design flair. The collection is available in four refined finishes: brushed brass; brushed black chrome; chrome and nickel. The surface of the tap features knurled detailing that has been expertly machined on to each individual piece as an accent.

The industrial style Acme range from Aston Matthews comes in a scuffed living brass finish and features circular handles, again with a tactile knurled grip.

Bestwood is a modern, edgy collection designed by Martin Brudnizki for Drummonds and has a strong architectural feel to it. The shapes reference machinery controls and industrial joinery such as water and gas piping, connecting pieces and traditional plumbing ware. This collection is available in a range of finishes, from gleaming nickel and chrome to polished, brushed or antiqued brass.

Samuel Heath’s Landmark collection is heavily influenced by the simplified forms and functional efficiency of the Bauhaus era. The industrial collection marries bold proportions with beautiful form, completed by machine detailing on selected areas of the fittings to create a contemporary, urban style with a practical, highly tactile finish. The collection is available in a range of matt and high-gloss finishes.

Elan Vital is just one of the industrial inspired ranges on offer from The Watermark Collection. It presents the ultimate in stripped down aesthetic and takes inspiration from plumbing unions combined with the advantages of modern valves and aeration.
