Renovations focusing on matte black to maximize impact of a small budget

It’s no longer just about chrome. Make a statement with a black shower or faucet.

With a recent boom in DIY renovations, British Columbians are opting for bolder finishes to create a statement.

The most popular finish is the sleek, onyx matte black that is now widely available for faucets, showers heads, shower doors and bathroom accessories.

“In the last few years we’ve seen a shift away from all-white designs, and surging popularity in bold accent pieces,” says Michelle Braden, marketing manager, at Splashes Bath & Kitchen, BC-based retail showroom for plumbing fixtures.

To find these trendy accents, people are turning to social media for inspiration.

Pinterest and Houzz have inspired homeowners to experiment with bold finishes, more colour and added depth. This allows them to maximize the impact of a design while keeping the renovation budget low.

A report from Altus Group shows fewer Canadian homeowners are planning improvements costing more than $5,000 this year compared to previous years.

They are also more conscious of who they are spending with since 86 per cent of Canadians making a bigger effort to support local businesses than they did prior to COVID-19.

An exclusive partnership with Quebec innovator, Kalia

Splashes Bath & Kitchen is proud to carry the Quebec brand Kalia, one of the companies leading innovation for matte black bathroom fixtures.

“Matte black can fit any bathroom design. We see matte black with natural material such as marble or granite. But, we also see matte black paired with either glossy or matte materials,” said Yvan Savoie, business development manager for Kalia.
