If you're in London, which I assume you are from the EC1 thing, bear in mind that our water is incredibly hard. Any taps with a black finish, particularly matt ones, are incredibly susceptible to showing the slightest of water spots and get pretty ugly pretty quick.
I love the look of them too, but the amount of cleaning they require to keep the showroom finish makes them unfeasible in my experience.
I have a black taps in kitchen and toilet and honestly they rarely have any marks despite it being hard water.
I’ve gone for untreated brushed brass for this new bathroom.
