Gun Metal – The New Matt Black
When it comes to finishing touches, tapware and bathroomware play a key role in your new home’s individual aesthetic. At Anthem Homes we are always searching for the latest trends to advise our customers in their design choices.
One of the trends is the colour finishes available for tapware and accessories. Black was an addition to the traditional chrome and brushed nickel finishes with gun metal, brass, and bronze added in recent times. The sleek and stylish look of gun metal has become a new favourite with a softer appearance to the strong black finish.
Coating methods for these finishes are not created equal. At Anthem Homes, quality and durability is key. We work with suppliers who support these same values. The tapware we use in black and gun metal finishes has been electroplated instead of powdercoated. Electroplating is the process in which electrical current is used to dissolve components into lacquer that then adheres to the surface. This process is durable and ensures that your tapware is corrosion resistant and has a stronger resistance to marks and scratches. Therefore, retaining their stunning appearance for years to come.
Cleaning any gun metal, black or brushed nickel product is extremely easy. We recommend a microfibre cloth with some warm soapy water and avoiding any harsh cleaning products. Regular cleaning this way will ensure that your finishes retain their stunning appearance for years to come.
