Every bathroom requires a hero feature to add interest to the space. The rule of thumb is to have one design statement in the bathroom to ensure there isn’t a clash of competing components.

The most popular statements in bathrooms are created with tiled walls, floors or lighting. But the taps and fixtures can be a budget friendly way to add a feature in a neutral bathroom. In fact these hardworking pieces in the bathroom can elevate a bathroom instantaneously. If you’re looking to make a design statement in your bathroom, check out these taps and fixtures from ABI Interiors.

Stone Basin

One can only dream of having a marble top vanity, but this can blow out the renovating budget tremendously. Why not think smaller, by getting a marble basin instead? The Saba Stone Basin by Abi Interiors is elegant and its sealed finish makes it a worthy contender as a bathroom statement. The above counter installation is on trend and costs a fraction of the cost of buying and installing a marble top vanity.

Brushed Brass Mixers

Chrome and Matte Black are the most popular tap choices, so creating a statement when installing taps comes down to choosing an alternate finish. Brushed Brass is elegant and versatile. It can stand out against a white tiled splash back and can look equally striking against black and grey. Brushed brass compliments any timber elements within the bathroom, making it a standout bathroom feature to consider.

Wall Mounted Basin and Bottle Trap

Most bathrooms will opt for a vanity, and for good reason as it offers concealed storage space. But going against the grain by installing a wall mounted basin and bottle trap can make a visual statement. If you do decide to install this option in your bathroom, do put in eye level storage to ensure your basin counter doesn’t clutter with products.

Wall mounted basins do allow for easy cleaning underneath and permits styled storage options like baskets for additional storage. This basin design won’t be for everyone, but should definitely be considered if wanting to make a design statement in the bathroom.

The bottle trap is the best way to install the exposed plumbing underneath. Do ensure the pop up waste matches the bottle trap for a cohesive look.
