There is so many choices when you’re selecting taps for your reno. But I want to give you some tips to help you with that.
Hello it’s Bernadette Janson. And tonight I’m going talk about the colour of the taps.
So there’s always a bit of a temptation to go get something. There is so many choices when you’re selecting taps for your reno. But I want to give you some tips to help you with that.
Firstly, are you going to be holding the property or are you selling? Because if you’re selling it you can be a little bit more adventurous. Go to something that’s a bit more on trend. But if you’re holding it I would suggest that you go for something that is timeless. Something like chrome, stainless steel or even brushed brass. I think it’s okay in terms of being classical. These days you don’t have the same maintenance issues that we used to have with brass tapware. So I think you can safely install that and feel quite okay about it.
Because what you don’t want to do if you’re holding the property is you know, in five years time be looking at your bathroom, and think “that bathroom looks great except those taps are really dirty.”
And the other thing is the matte black. I personally think it’s had its day. And if you’re in a not very style savvy area you can probably get away with it for a bit longer. But generally speaking I think we’re all over it. And so I certainly would not be putting that back in. The other thing is that I think the markets tweak to the fact that they are high maintenance. They chip and don’t look very nice in a very short amount of time.
The other thing I want to ask you is if you would go up to the bottom of the top and subscribe for more tips. And for more information about renovating and what I could do for you, you could you head over to our website on www.theschoolofrenovating.com. Thanks for watching.
