Since the 60s the foreground of our domestic landscape has been shaped by waves of colour and classic design. Now it seems that our tastes of have come full circle but in the most unexpected way as we choose coloured bathroom taps instead of chrome and natural metal finishes.

The late 1960s were a period of optimism, adventure, boldness and experimentation with bright colours and patterns in the home as a whole new generation stood between that period and the plain, practical remnants of the war years.

It was at this time that Danish architect Arne Jacobsen’s ‘Vola’ achieved international acclaim for sleek, sculptured lines and perfect product proportions. It seems fitting therefore that Vola’s new range of beautifully designed and brightly coloured taps have caught the attention of the individual and colour hungry designer and luxury bathroom buyer of 2013.

Robert Muhl of Bridport Dorset based luxury and designer bathroom company Ocean Bathrooms stocks the modern Vola range and explains more about the products and their appeal.

“Most people have chrome taps in their home, they are practical and easy to keep bright and shiny, nickel, brass, steel or gold are also popular finishes but many of our customers are asking for more vibrant colour from a tap. The most popular bathroom sanitary ware colour is still white and in order to create a unique ambiance to the bathroom a growing number of discerning customers wish to choose from a whole rainbow of colour and to be able to find taps in their ‘perfect colour’.

Vola really have taken the colour challenge to heart and have designed some beautiful, stunning taps. Pink or green taps are popular adding a light freshness to white sanitary ware. Those who just need a flash of colour to brighten the day can start with a block colour tap.”

Ocean Bathrooms showcase Vola taps in their working showroom where the brilliant red tap on a fiery orange basin has been attracting some interest and a large number of comments.

It seems however that it’s not only the colour of our taps that we’d like to change but also the way in which the water flows into our basins and baths. Robert Muhl explains more about how our desire for artistic bathroom features offer something different from the norm:

“Many of us now want taps that are a real statement feature in the bathroom and are works of art in their own right. Water still has to flow, but we want and now have the choice of water pouring forth in many different ways. Think designer waterfalls, designer rain and imaginative designer water spouts.

The world of luxury and designer bathrooms has seen the introduction of some really fabulous and exciting new products recently and customers really love and appreciate the fact that they can now customise and personalise virtually every aspect of their bathroom – including the taps.”
