Taps will always be a prominent feature in any bathroom – mainly because they tend to be the item used most often.
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. Monobloc mixer taps too need a good water pressure.
So, in order to make sure you buy the correct type of tap 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.
Basin and Bath Taps
Basin and Bath Taps tend to come in three main different style types. These are:
• Pillar taps. Supplied as two separate taps with both hot and cold water controls, these are suitable for use with a two tap hole basin.
• Mixer taps. Combines both hot and cold water in the body of the tap to provide you with the perfect temperature. Suitable for use with a one tap hole basin. Single lever monobloc taps are neat, space saving and look good in minimalist bathrooms.
• Wall-mounted. These are installed over the basin and provide your bathroom with a very contemporary look.
Baths these days tend to have a huge variety of tap holes from none whatsoever to up to four holes. Pillar taps, lever taps, screw taps – you’ll find a huge selection available right here at Bella Bathrooms. This includes finishes in gold, chrome and black.
Bath Shower Mixer Tap
Enjoy the best of both worlds by having a joint bath/shower tap in one – and at no great product or installation costs. One of the big attractions of this feature isn’t just the fact you can hand shower in the bath (a boon for those with young families) but the shower facility is also great for washing hair or cleaning the bath after use. For a traditional look the showerhead fitting can be placed on top of the mixer tap (as in an old-fashioned telephone receiver). Modern bathroom owners may prefer it hanging on a wall bracket.
Bidet facilities tend to be found in older bathrooms – a fact which has affected their design. Most bidet taps are of the traditional variety although here at Bella Bathrooms we also stock bidet taps suitable for modern bathroom designs.
You might be surprised this here but at Bella Bathrooms we’re well aware you need taps in other areas on your home too and that’s why we also stock a wide range of traditional and contemporary kitchen taps.
