As far back as I can remember designers have bounced between matte and gloss when it comes to choosing wall tiles in bathrooms and cabinetry cupboard finishes for kitchens.
Personally, I have always been more drawn towards the matte look, so I was thrilled to see the addition of bathroom and kitchen tapware in a true matte finish. The black trend may be short lived, only time will tell. Meanwhile, white matte tapware is on the rise, as is the matte finish on baths, kitchen sinks and bathroom basins.
This mix of beauties below show you that shiny is not always best.
