Matte Black Magic


Hot in Aussie bathrooms, this chic finish speaks for itself. Say au revoir to chrome and hello to matte black bathroom finishes. Offering a modern aesthetic suited to a range of styles, matte black truly is the new black. When choosing your tapware, look no further than products finished with the tough and beautiful Switzrok Matte Black.

This finish has a beautifully even, velvety texture that hides fingerprints and is easy to keep clean. Amalfi Tiles in Kingford has also seen this trend and describes why matte black is here to stay. “This finish is ideal to make a bathroom look edgy while still matching a wide variety of tiles, shower fittings, drain and even door hardware,” the company says.

The versatility of matte black products is one of its strengths, alongside its timeless look. Of course, the product’s function should be just as enduring as its appearance. Switzrok is an extremely durable, hard-wearing and smooth-to-touch patent made in Switzerland.

Living by the coast? With more than 1000 hours of sea salt testing, the Switzrok Matte Black surface is suitable for indoor and outdoor use, hardy enough for any home.

While matte black looks great in almost every bathroom, the striking tapware is often contrasted with whites, stones or timbers for a high-end look. “In terms of styling, we enjoy pairing the black tapware with anything stone or marble. Who doesn’t love a good monochrome bathroom with subway tiles, too?”asks Amalfi Tiles.

Switzrok is a finish unique to Faucet Strommen and available across almost the entire range for perfect colour coordination. The tapware is built in Kerang, Australia, where the finish is then applied.

Tight deadlines are no problem with this locally made tapware, with the typical lead time being two weeks. Whether you’re doing a complete bathroom overhaul or would like a refresh of your current bathroom furnishings, look no further than the collections and finishes available at Faucet Strommen.
