Traditional kitchen taps in fashion

The kitchen has always been the heart of the home and the recent lockdown has seen people spending more and more time in this space; socialising in a family bubble, cooking, home schooling, crafting – the list goes on. People have had time to imagine their perfect kitchen and enquiries to retailers are strong.

The latest home décor trends feature blends of classic and modern styles in every room. Ultramodern and minimalism mix effortlessly with the industrial, antique and traditional. The kitchen is a prime example. Always a personality statement, the kitchen reflects the taste and lifestyle of each individual homeowner – and anything goes now! Mixing colour and mute furniture with both modern and classic combinations of appliances and accessories is an overall trend across homestyle media.

A staple combination is the traditional tap with the farmhouse sink; yet also evident is a mix of modern sink materials such as Silgranit® with a classic tap in copper and brass, for example. And, in turn, smart taps can, of course, be combined with traditional sinks.

Pictured is a perfect centrepiece; the Brushed Copper VICUS® tap from BLANCO UK which combines the elegance of a classic design with a modern edge.

The VICUS® family consists of the twin lever, the bridge twin lever and the single lever spray. An additional key feature of the VICUS single lever is the pull-out spray from the hose which can be used to clean the extended work area.  All three models are available in Chrome, Pewter, Brushed Brass and now Brushed Copper with matching soap dispensers.
