Bathroom Taps – Your Guide to Taps

Bathroom taps are an essential of everyday living. However they are not just a necessity, they can serve the purpose of being a key design element and the focal point of your bathroom furniture or bath. The days of mediocre simplicity of two taps that turn to provide water is over, there are so many groundbreaking designs to complement your basin unit or bath.

From waterfall to traditional, contemporary to classic there is something for you. Entirely Bathrooms supplies a superb range of taps for all tastes and budgets. Through this guide we will explore the world of taps to help you choose the right one for you and your bathroom.

Modern Waterfall Taps

Waterfall taps are highly regarded as that modern touch to the bathroom. They are not only great as a design feature; they are now extremely practical with amazing features, such as anti-splash and diffuser technology for that luxury bathroom experience. As pictured on the left here is the Cassellie Dunk Basin Waterfall Tap. This basin mixer is finished in stunning chrome electroplating; it is very strong too with brass construction and highly durable aluminium tails.

The diffuser technology is designed to reduce the amount splash that hits against the side of the bowl. It is very easy to operate with a slide of the hand left or right to adjust the temperature and all you need to do is lift it up or down to increase and reduce pressure. Now these taps are available for excellent prices and are available with matching bath fillers or even shower mixers if you desire.

Freestanding Bathroom Taps

Freestanding taps are the epitome of luxury. Designed to sit beside your freestanding bath, these large fixtures can really help develop the appeal of your bathroom. This particular freestanding tap on the left here is the Cassellie Dalton Freestanding Bath Shower Mixer. Great features include heavy chrome finishing, parts constructed from solid brass for durability and a lifetime guarantee when purchased from Entirely Bathrooms.

On the market today there are so many different designs for you to choose from, which means that whether you have a modern square style freestanding bath or a bath more traditional in nature like a slipper setup, there will be one for you. With freestanding baths it is not common to drill in holes for a small bath shower mixer, but why not continue the theme of your bathroom with a stunning freestanding bath tap to really make a statement.

Wall mounted tapWall Mounted Taps

If it is a modern approach that you are looking for, wall mounted taps are a great choice. Now you can acquire them in both the basin mixer and the bath filler format. It is becoming one of the latest trend to have everything wall mounted e.g. vanity unit, toilet pan, sinks and more; why not continue this contemporary feel. An excellent attribute of the wall mounted tap is that compared to the average basin mounted mixer tap/s, it can be installed anywhere on the wall, this gives you the flexibility that you wouldn’t usually have otherwise.

The Scudo Wall Mounted Waterfall Basin Mixer variation allows easy operation; the single lever controls the pressure as well as the temperature of the hot and cold water. The long spout and the diffuser technology in this model, provides a significant reduction in the amount of splash in your basin. There is also a Scudo bath shower mixer that is wall mounted available now to match.

Basin Mixers, Bath Fillers, Bath/Shower Mixers, but which one is right for me?

Contemporary, traditional, chrome, waterfall, mixers; there are so many variations on the standard tap, but what are the pros and cons of them? The standard setup consisted of two taps, one for hot and one for cold that can be operated separately by a single turn, these taps are still available and used as they are still practical and if there is an issue with one of the taps, it can still be used. But nowadays, there are mixers which mean that you can operate all the key functions on just one lever. The takeover of single tap hole basins is making the mixer taps much more popular.

No one can deny the simplicity and practicality of one lever for all. Baths generally have double tap holes installed, as the one piece units with two levers are still the most popular. The difference between a bath filler and a bath/shower mixer, is that the bath fillers are more traditional with a lever for hot and a lever for cold. The shower mixers also have this function, however there is a shower wand/head attached by a hose to the centre; these are great for families with children or a great accessory to your shower unit as a whole.
