Taps, trims and details have typically been in Chrome or aluminum for a long time now, but the trend is now towards other metals, such as brass. Brass today is much more understated and luxurious than it used to be. Instead of appearing common, it is an element of the overall design of a room that shows just a hint of luxury.

At BAGNODESIGN, we understand that certain design features, such as noteworthy finishes on taps, showers, and accessories act as game changers for the design of not only the bathroom, but the entire home, so we take many aspects in consideration when coming up with our new finishes. Bold brass finishes are some of the biggest trends of 2018, aiming to create a wow factor for your home. Going along with this trend, we created Zanzibar, the new finish whose popularity shows no signs of slowing down.

Zanzibar – our new addition for 2018

An already alluring alternative to Gold, with its brushed brass look, Zanzibar brings an industrial chic look to your bathroom. Zanzibar is a brushed brass finish with a light, soft gold tone, offering a modern re-invention of a design classic. Zanzibar’s tone adds just the right amount of depth, dimension luxury to any space. Simple to translate into any style of bathroom, it is a finish that creates a luxurious impression whether introduced around the washbasin, bath, shower, or all three. It also comes with the bonus of keeping fingerprints and water spots hidden. As a natural material, brass taps into the current trend of introducing organic materials into the modern bathroom, making Zanzibar the perfect fit for any setting of 2018 and beyond.

A timeless shade

It may seem like a throwback to the 70s, yet all tones of bronze, brass and gold are back in the world of bathrooms. We are seeing huge growth in non-reflective finishes for taps and showers. The thing about brass, and especially brushed brass, is that, when done in a tasteful manner, it never goes out of style. This bold new trend, separating from the traditional norm that wants us using different brassware finishes for the fixtures and fittings rather than Chrome, provides a stand-out feature and blends into both contemporary and traditional bathroom settings.

A versatile finish

Brass’s versatility really allows you to experiment with a lot of new looks and even move designs on from just “pure” Copper to mix it with other metallics, vivid block colours and contrasting materials such as wood and smoked glass, to create a variety of feels from mid-century cool to Scandinavian luxury.

Our finishes, here at BAGNODESIGN, constitute the essence of what makes our products stand out. We create finishes that don’t just complement the room but stay true to the overall sense of style one is looking to create. Choosing fixture finishes helps define the look of a bathroom and eventually of the entire home. Brass provides a warming, sophisticated glow that could be easily incorporated into any type of interior schemes to add an element of understated, cool lux.

The rising demand for brassware in warmer metallic finishes is mirrored in many of our newest projects, among them Indigo Hotel in Business Bay. For the bathrooms at Indigo Hotel, we paired Copper and Bronze metallic finishes.

Fixtures and fittings are a good way to tiptoe into the brass scene. Are you ready to take the next step into one of the biggest bathroom decor trends of 2018?
