One of the best ways to improve your bathroom is with new taps and mixing units for your sink, tub, or shower. And, with such a wide selection of bathroom taps, you’re sure to find one that’s perfect for your home.
Taps come in various styles and finishes, from traditional chrome to contemporary brushed nickel. The most important factor is choosing something that suits the rest of your bathroom’s decor.
Bathroom Taps In All Shapes And Sizes
When creating your perfect bathroom, every detail is essential and ultimately contributes to the overall look.
Several bath taps are available, including wall-mounted, traditional pillar taps, and mixer versions.
First, let’s examine five of the different types of taps available:
A tap’s mounting refers to the surface on which it is installed. Taps mounted on the wall above a basin or bathtub are called wall-mounted taps.
Wall-mounted taps are ideal for smaller bathrooms and give you more options for layout design. They are also an attractive way to add flair and style to your bathroom.
Deck-mounted taps sit on top of the basin or bathtub. They can be pillar taps or monoblocs coming through a single hole. These are far more common than wall-mounted taps as they are generally easier to plumb.
The traditional pillar tap is the most common type of tap available today. They generally have two separate handles for hot and cold water control. The two taps flow separately into the bath or basin. Pillar taps are used in two-hole baths and basins.
Mixer taps are controlled by a single lever that can be moved left or right to achieve the desired temperature. The water pressure is increased or decreased by moving the faucet up or down. To enjoy a mixer tap, your home should have a high-pressure water system. Some mixer taps are available in a monobloc style. This unit is designed to hold one or two tap handles as well as the spout. They are appropriate for deck-mounted taps, baths, or basins with a single tap hole.
