9 Unique Industrial Style Bathroom Taps
A stripped-down aesthetic is a hallmark of industrial style. Taking cues and inspiration from old factories, brick buildings, salvage yards and metal works, industrial style bathroom taps are surprisingly versatile, and you don’t have to live in an old warehouse or edgy loft to take advantage of this unique style — but it’s pretty cool if you do.
When it comes to industrial style, "functionality trumps all," and with a minimalist and streamlined aesthetic, industrial style bathroom taps are the perfect addition to your bathroom.
Take inspiration from these nine unique industrial style bathroom taps, and you’ll be able to design the perfect bathroom for your own personal style — whether your bathroom design is mid-century, modern farmhouse, bohemian, full industrial or an eclectic mix.
1. Bet on Brooklyn
Urban loyalists rejoice. The Brooklyn Collection is an innovative faucet design reminiscent of gate valves found in mid-century Brooklyn apartment blocks. This industrial style bathroom tap, with its spoke faucet handle, adds a unique touch of character that will complete the most modern of bathrooms. But honestly, it would look great anywhere.
2. Delight in Delicate Details
The delicately detailed sink basin stands in beautiful contrast to an understated industrial-style bathroom tap. An Elan Vital Collection faucet in an aged brass finish completes this dreamy setup, and its streamlined single lever handle doesn’t clutter the wall, keeping the focus on the beauty of the sink.
3. Mix Farmhouse and Vintage Industrial Styles
Despite its ultra-industrial vibe, this Elan Vital Collection faucet is at home in any bathroom. Modern, farmhouse-chic, urban or contemporary, this faucet is a welcome addition. This design even hints at a nautical theme with the knotted ropes on the mirror.
Drawing from the industrial style’s proclivity towards repurposed materials, this faucet looks like a repurposed pipe just waiting to find a home.
4. A Bright Gleam in the Darkness
This stunning and brooding bathroom incorporates just the right amount of brightness in the way of a Brooklyn Collection satin nickel spout and satin brass handles to create a place of quiet thought and introspection.
Many industrial style taps lean towards a matte finish, but this design goes outside the box, choosing satin finishes that highlight their beauty.
5. Stand Tall Above the Rest
An Elan Vital Collection industrial tap stands tall over a statement vessel sink creating a stunning blend of modern and industrial design. This stately faucet is paired with handles in a contrasting finish, a little detail that makes a big impact.
6. Get to the Point With Streamlined Beauty
This straightforward industrial tap gets to the point. Modeled after a vintage espresso machine, this Sutton Collection industrial tap features linear knurling on the end of the tap creating a streamlined look. Hex nut handles continue the knurling and add an industrial touch to your bathroom design.
7. Dare to Be Different
The mix of seemingly unrelated elements in this bathroom comes together in perfect harmony with something new to see everywhere you look. From the tile pattern around the tub to the red-handled Brooklyn Collection faucet and a camel picture gracing the wall. The chrome finish makes a stunning statement against the white tile backsplash.
8. Brass, Brass and … More Brass
Brass is back — and it’s aged in the most graceful way. Contrary to the shiny, glaring brass that rose to popularity in the 1980s, an aged brass industrial style bathroom tap from the H-Line Collection adds a dignified element to the design. Paired with muted colors and clean lines, it makes for a stunning visual experience. This is brass, all grown up.
9. Polished to Perfection
The dramatically curved spout of the Anika Collection faucet is equally at home in a bohemian bathroom full of jewel tones and a variety of textures or a streamlined modern design. Gently flared handles lend an angular touch to the graceful arc of the faucet.
