Choosing The Right Bathroom Taps

Mar 18, 2008
Bathroom taps are a key part of any new bathroom design, today on the market there is every conceivable style and shape. In years gone by you could tell the age the tap originated from just by its look, Georgian, Victorian etc. Today you can get all of the old retro styles as well as the modern types.

In the past taps were an item purely of function nowadays taps are made into a feature of a wash basin or of a bath, be they chrome or gold plated, modern or retro, lever or standard turn taps. Your choice taps say something about you. Whatever style of bathroom tap you're after if you look hard enough you'll find it. There are literally thousands of styles available. You can now get taps that produce filtered water, taps that have a light in them which turns on when the tap is running.

Most modern homes go for taps which are both elegant and durable, as well as something that can stand the test of time and not look too out dated in two or three years. I've known people who when they wanted to change the whole feel of their bathroom they've simply removed the taps and themed the bathroom around the new taps, much more economical than replacing a whole suite.

Italian design and manufactured bathroom taps are generally very good quality as well as being affordable, Italian styling is always popular with a hint of cutting edge fashion. Most plumbers merchants, previously solely interested in trade business have now opened their doors the man on the street and realised the market for good quality bathroom accessories is growing hugely each year.

Most merchants now have a plush showroom with every conceivable bath, shower as well as a collection of bathroom taps to compliment all bathroom suites and tastes. Here you should be able to find the style you are looking for as well as being able to try before you buy. Trying before you buy is very important where taps are concerned, you don't want to buy a tap that judders and grinds every time you turn it on, generally with taps when they're fitted they stay fitted for a few years at least.

Don't be put off from buying taps online though, still use your plumbers merchant to test the tap, get his very best price, they will offer discount if you ask, check out the web to see if you can find the same tap and compare prices from there.

Ensure taps are kept clean and free from grit, if grit gets into the mechanism it will wear away the moving parts and greatly reduce the life of the taps, as well as this it is advisable that you handle the taps with great care so that you ensure a longer life of service and make sure that every care is taken when fitting the taps. In these days of progression and choice where every conceivable type of tap is available one thing is unavoidable, one day you will be woken up in the middle of the night by the dripping of a far off designer bathroom tap.
