Are you building, renovating, or looking to refresh your bathroom with chic new tapware? From sink mixers to shower systems, there is a range of options available for you to choose from. With the right selection, you can add an element of style and functionality to your bathroom area. Here we will explore the different types of tapware available and how to make sure that it fits in perfectly with your bathroom decor. By considering factors such as its aesthetic appeal, sustainability, and installation, you can go ahead and pick the best taps for your home!
Consider Your Style
The tapware you choose should match the overall style of your bathroom. For example, if you have a modern bathroom, you might want to consider sleek and minimalist tapware with clean lines. On the other hand, if you have a traditional bathroom, you might prefer more ornate tapware with curves and details.
Think About the Finish
Tapware comes in a range of finishes, including chrome, stainless steel, brushed nickel, brass, black, and more. Choose a finish that complements the other fixtures in your bathroom, such as your vanity, showerhead, towel rails, and toilet roll holder. It’s also important to choose a colour and finish and matches in well with your chosen tiles.
See What’s Best For Your Basin
Basin taps are either top-mounted (mounted directly onto the basin/vanity or on a horizontal surface) or wall-mounted (mounted to the wall, great for creating more space around the basin).
Basin tapware is available in several styles:
- Three-piece tapware – A traditional style, featuring a hot and cold tap with a separate spout.
- Mixer tap – These have a single mixing lever for hot and cold water flow and are suitable for single-hole basins.
When deciding on basin taps, make sure you select a spout that is proportionately sized to the basin. A spout that is too long or too short can result in water splashing over onto your vanity. Be mindful of:
- The depth of your basin
- how many holes the basin or wall needs for your preferred tap style
- The available space around your basin
- If you’re upgrading or replacing old taps, you’ll need to select the same set-up
Look for Functionality
The tapware you choose should be functional and easy to use. Consider whether you want a single lever or double handle tap, as well as whether you want a swivel spout or fixed spout. Think about the height of the tapware and whether it will be easy to reach and use.
Consider the Cost
Tapware can vary greatly in price, so it’s important to set a budget before you start shopping. Keep in mind that high-quality tapware with good warranties is an investment that can add value to your home and last for many years.
By considering the style, finish, functionality, and cost of your tapware, you can choose the right fixtures to complement your new bathroom and create a functional and beautiful space.
