Bathroom Taps - Contemporary vs. Traditional:
Whilst it’s common practice to install contemporary looking bathroom taps in a modern setting and similarly, traditional styles in a classic bathroom; that’s not always the case. In some instances the look of a bathroom can strongly benefit from a contrast in styling, however, it needs to be done extremely carefully to pull it off and not look out of place. Don’t think you can just choose two clashing styles and they’ll somehow work – it's definitely not that easy. Consult a bathroom designer or if you have a keen eye for detail and designs, have a browse through our range for styles that will work well to improve the overall look of the room.
It's The Little Things That Matter...
Whilst the big bathroom items are obviously important, the smaller things should never be neglected. Many designers believe that the appeal of a room can be defined by the finer details – think taps and accessories. That’s why they shouldn’t just be bought on a whim. We have a wide selection available to give you the biggest choice possible. With a whole host of bath fillers, basin mixers, wall-mounted and floor standing options on sale, there’s no doubt that your perfect choice are just a couple of clicks away.
New Bathroom Taps Are An Affordable Upgrade
Many people believe that upgrading a bathroom involves ripping showers out, installing new baths and doing everything on a big scale, but that’s not entirely true. A bathroom can be freshened up simply by introducing a fresh set of new fittings into it such as basin or bath mixers. Replacing old bathroom taps that no longer operate correctly or that don’t match the decor can be one of the simplest ways to improve the overall look of your bathroom without breaking the bank. Not only is this an affordable modification, but it can also give your room a feeling of quality and unity, especially if you opt for a group range of styles rather than mixing and matching different styles. This is quickly becoming one of the most common bathroom upgrades and it’s easy to see why when it’s so simple and represents fantastic value for money.
What Do Our Customers Think?
We’ve had thousands upon thousands of people invest in a variety of our taps over the years and many of these choose to leave a review to help out other shoppers. Whilst we do our best to describe the taps and explain their features, previous buyers may inform you of functionality that we’ve overlooked such as how easy they are to clean, what bathroom styles suit the design and so on. Reviews include both the good and bad, but it’s worth taking others’ opinions into consideration when making up your own mind and make sure you leave reviews to help others after you!
