Tuscany Bathroom Faucets
Tuscany bathroom faucets are inspired by those found in the Tuscan region of Italy, world-famous for its food, wine and a laid-back, rustic style that's at once comfortable, welcoming and elegant.
Tuscan-style bathrooms often use bold colors like ochre, terracotta and soothing Mediterranean blues. Comfort and relaxed elegance prevail in these spaces, which can often feel like they belong in a vacation villa.
Color affects mood, so before you settle on a shade, ask yourself how you want to feel in your bathroom. Energized or relaxed? Do you want a space that is stately and formal or cozy and casual? The subdued terra-cotta orange in this bathroom is energizing but doesn't overwhelm when paired with neutral tile. Bonus: The tile itself is a great way to introduce color.
Low-contrast combos such as taupes, beiges and tans will create a casual, classic bathroom style that can be dressed up with colorful accessories. If you're not a fan of beige, choosing high-contrast color schemes such as black and white will create a more pristine, formal look in the bath, says interior designer Mark McCauley, ASID. Note: To avoid a matchy-matchy look, choose bathroom accessories in a hue dissimilar to the room's most dominant color.
Bathroom cabinets are a great way to bring in color. The birch cabinetry in this room plays against blue walls, red accessories and natural slate tile to create a cohesive "finished" look. For variety, choose towels, decorative pieces and flooring in a shade lighter or darker than the walls.
Solid brass and oil-rubbed bronze are great material choices for Tuscany bathroom faucets. They both have a classic, solid construction that fits well with both the traditional elegance and the relaxed feel of Tuscan-style bathrooms. The hues in brass or oil-rubbed bronze faucets will complement the traditional colors in Tuscan style bathrooms well—yellows and deep browns can work perfectly with the reds, mustards and bold blues of these often spa-like bath spaces.
In terms of style, a fairly traditional, classic approach is usually employed for Tuscan bathroom faucets. The terracotta flooring and intricate wall tiles of these bathrooms often offer enough style on their own, allowing faucet fixtures to be more understated.
