Gun metal is a versatile colour which complements a variety of colour schemes.
Whether your space be full of neutral colours (white, cream, beige), pastels or brighter colours, gun metal can make for a great addition.
Gun metal is a greyish colour that reaches a balance between chrome and matte black. It has a similar aesthetic to chrome but at the same time has the contrasting nature of matte black. However, both of these elements are subdued which helps gun metal easily blend in for most colour schemes.
Advantages of gun metal include:
- Easy to pair with your bathroom or kitchen accessories
- Dirt, watermarks, or fingerprints don’t show up easily
- Gives your space a modern aesthetic

Do Gun Metal Taps Scratch?
All taps can be scratched. However, almost all of our taps come in either PVD or electroplated finishes which make for a very scratch resistant surface.
A better question would be, ‘are scratch marks visible on gun metal taps?’. Scratch marks won’t show as clearly as you would see on a matte black tap but would be more apparent than a chrome colour.
With a little bit of care, you can ensure your gun metal tapware lasts and looks great for many years to come.
We'd always recommend to use a microfibre cloth with warm soapy water to maintain your taps and ensure you don't scratch or rub off the finish.
