The Golden Age in Tapware
Gold tapware is everywhere right now. Recent TV renovation shows, such as The Block, featured gold tapware, showers and accessories prominently and the demand for this finish is hitting new heights. There is a plethora of gold hues currently on the market. Where do you start in choosing the finish that is right for your project? And how do you pair gold with your other bathroom fittings and fixtures?
The warm tone of the Phoenix Brushed Gold finish is characterised by the muted lines across its surface and its soft metallic hue. This softness means that this is the type of gold that will complement rather than dominate your room. It will make a statement that is refined and sophisticated, not bold and brash.
Brushed Gold is a modern spin on a traditional gold tapware finish. So, it works beautifully in design styles where you may want to reference the past in a modern, minimal design aesthetic. It can be paired with earthen, natural tones found in timber, terracotta and stone. And works equally well with colour, especially shades of pink from nude to blush.

Phoenix understands the frustrations that homeowners, interior designers and architects face when they specify a gold finish for bathroom fixtures and fittings, only to find that they cannot source all the tapware, showers and accessories in that particular finish.
The Phoenix Vivid Slimline collection, a perennial favourite with its slimline lever handles, will suit any modern interior, and presents the Phoenix Brushed Gold finish across tapware, showers and accessories. This highlights the cohesion that can be achieved when the same Brushed Gold finish is shared across not only tapware and mixers but also accessories.

Not only is Brushed Gold in the spotlight in bathrooms, but it is also making a star appearance in kitchens. Kitchen tapware has long been the domain of finishes such as chrome or more recently, black. Now, Brushed Gold adds a touch of glamour, with Kitchen Sink Mixers being the jewel in the crown of an island bench or a luxe butler’s pantry.
Not only will these Brushed Gold products look amazing, but they will also have the additional benefit of the longevity and durability of the extensive Phoenix finish warranty.
