Taps

Taps will always be a prominent feature in any bathroom (or indeed the kitchen) – mainly because they tend to be the item used most often. Indeed purely updating your taps can have a big impact on your bathroom. Find your perfect bathroom accessories in this range!

The type of bathroom tap you go for should obviously be dictated by the overall style of your bathroom. But sometimes there are other factors to take into account too - such as the available water pressure in your bathroom. Some taps, such as shower mixer taps for instance, won’t work with a low pressure system. Mono mixer taps too need a good water pressure.

So, in order to make sure you buy the correct type of tap for your bathroom or kitchen to begin with it’s certainly worth finding out from a plumber about the type of water system your bathroom is running on.

In terms of their place in a bathroom taps can be eye catching, space-saving and stylish – and preferably all three. Here at Bella Bathrooms our large range includes basin taps, bath taps, bidet taps, mixer taps and (even) kitchen taps from a range of well-known and respected bathroom manufacturers, many of whom you’ve no doubt familiar with their name.
