There is a reason why grey-toned finishes have been used in bathrooms all around the world. Its versatility is astounding and not to be underestimated.


Most palettes work well with silvers, charcoals and blacks, and when paired right, can give a timeless touch to your bathroom. From bathroom taps, shower taps, sink mixers to walls and tiles, the popular shade adds a hint of the traditional and could be used to compliment or contrast with other elements in the bathroom. It truly is a shade of timeless elegance. And here’s why.

There are Endless Shades of Grey

There are many grey hues to choose from and when put together can give your bathroom or kitchen design a traditional touch or a contemporary feel. Layering your grey-toned elements can also compliment your bathroom from accentuating bathroom statement pieces or create a calm and cool hue.

For a serene bathroom, you can pair our new ‘Teel’ Basin Mixer in brushed nickel with light grey tiled walls and a decorative light brown wooden mirror. Together, this creates an organic yet modern and timeless design.

It is a Popular Choice for Taps

Finishes in the grey colour spectrum have always been a go-to option for bathroom tapware and kitchen mixers. It adapts seamlessly with warm or cool colour tones and if you ever feel like changing up your wall colour, the neutral tones will still compliment your selection.

Phoenix Tapware’s new collection – ‘Teel’, gives you bathroom and kitchen sink mixers in all these classic timeless shades. The tapware comes in Chrome and Brushed Nickel, which is perfect for a classic look, and Gun Metal and Matte Black, which can add a punch of character to your bathroom, kitchen or laundry.

It can achieve any style you want

Greys are never boring. With different textures and finishes, they can add a distinctive edge to your home. Select from highly reflective Chrome, the fine brushed texture of our Brushed Nickel, the deep charcoal tones of Gun Metal or be bold with Matte Black.

See how tapware in a grey palette finish beautifully pair with other materials and elements within your bathroom or kitchen. Add a touch of luxury with terrazzo, marble or reconstituted stones.  See how the taps sing next to porcelain or ceramic tiles.

It can also be used for accentuating other colours as statements in the room. For instance, with a feature blue bathroom cabinet paired with grey and white wall tiles, it can allow the more colourful areas of your bathroom to pop.
