Abode, designer and distributor of kitchen and bathroom taps, sinks, and showering solutions, has revealed it has developed a new traditional-style hot tap with modern functionality, which is set to become part of the company’s flagship Pronteau Collection and debut at KBB Birmingham in March 2022.
Paul Illingworth, design manager at Abode, said: “We have long felt that UK homeowners would welcome more choice when it comes to the provision of hot water taps in the kitchen, so we were pleased to discover the research confirms there is a now strong demand for hybrid tap designs that combine traditional style traits with modern functionality like instant steaming hot and filtered water on tap.”
Leanne Adamson, marketing manager at Abode, said: “Blurring the divide between traditional and contemporary interiors has become somewhat of a best-seller in kitchen design of late. Able to create a blended décor that is both classic and modern, homeowners have shifted their focus towards taps that are period by design but advanced in functionality. Added to that, high-lustre finishes with discernible patinas like antique brass and brushed finishes are elevating the traditional kitchen accessory with trends looking towards distinct polishing and surface treatments to elevate principal components like sinks and taps.”
The company says that it is set to unveil a raft of new products and that further information on these developments will be released in the run-up to KBB 2022.
