Design Blog – The New Metallics in Interiors

Gone are glittery glass splashbacks and mosaic tiles, that was oh so 5 years ago!

There has been a huge trend towards using a mixture of metal accents through the home for a while now.  We have been seeing this in furniture, cabinetry, tapware and tiles… just to name a few! 

Here are a few suggestion on how to incorporate some of the stunning new metals when building your new home.


Use metallic finished tiles with concrete look tops, and timber and matt black cabinets. Get the look with Caesarstone Raw Concrete, Polytec Ravine Notaio Walnut, Polytec Cinder Matt and Laminex innovations Plex Copper –

Opt for a brushed finish rather than a polished or mirror look when choosing your cabinet handles. Edge Straight handles by Furnipart are available in a range of beautiful metal finishes.unnamed-1


Glam up your bathroom or kitchen with some accent tapware in a metal finish such as brass, gun metal grey, stainless steel and black.

The super elegant, the Cono basin mixer in Black Metal Brush finish by Gessi looks incredible on a marble backdrop.
