Choosing the right taps for your bathroom can really make a difference but it can get a little confusing as there is such a huge choice of styles, types, finishes, shapes and sizes.
Your choice of bathroom taps will depend on many factors including
- the style or finish of other components in your bathroom
- basin design (1 tap hole, 2 tap hole etc)
- bath design (some baths require wall mounted taps)
- whether you require a shower (a bath shower mixer might be the answer)
- your heating system
The type of heating system that is present in your property can also have an affect on the choices available to you. Many continental bathroom taps are designed to work with high pressure heating systems, but a large proportion of UK heating systems operate using low pressure hot water.
Glass sinks are now very popular in UK bathrooms but they need to be carefully matched with the right type of taps, to ensure you get the right height and projection. It is normally best to source the sink and the tap from the same supplier to ensure they are compatible. A glass basin will usually require a tall basin mixer design although it is always best to check this before buying.
