It's not often that I find myself thinking, "Damn. That is a good-looking showerhead." But that was my response when I spotted this beautiful little bathroom in my Pinterest feed. I love how crisp and modern and striking the black showerhead is against the white subway tile. Black fixtures for the bathroom may just be the Next Big Thing.
Here's another view of that bathroom, photographed by Terrence Chin for Share Design
In a modern, black and white bathroom, black fixtures look so crisp, and they won't show water spots and fingerprints like shinier finishes will. One drawback is that they can be a bit hard to find — so we've done a little shopping for you.
1 & 2. Dornbracht's Tara series incorporates a huge array of fixtures, including shower fittings (and even auxiliary things like soap dishes and toilet paper dispensers), that come in a matt black finish.
3 & 4. This space-agey faucet is from Dornbracht's Deque series, which also includes equally sleek bath and shower fittings, all in black.
5. 'Falling Water' wallmount bathroom sink faucet in Satin Black, $1,072 from Kohler.
6 & 7. The Jason Wu collection for Brizo includes lots of ultra-modern black fixtures. The faucet pictured here is $799, and the set of shower fittings is $636.50.
8. Another set from Brizo. This one is priced at $758.30.
9. ELITE Single Lever Faucet in Black, $64.99 from Amazon.
