The 7 things you should consider when buying bath taps

 

Buying a new bathroom tap can be confusing. There are so many options and it's hard to know what you're getting for your money.

We've put together this guide to help make the process easier. Whether you need a basic, high-end, or something in between, we'll cover all of the considerations that go into buying a new bathroom tap.

 

We've done the work for you! Here is our guide to buying bathroom taps that will help make this process easier.

1) Different types of bathroom taps

 

Basin taps

Basin mixer taps are your basic tap - they are the cheapest, but that doesn't mean you have to sacrifice quality. They're great for smaller basins where you don't want to splash everywhere while adjusting the temperature of your water. Sometimes they have a single handle, but this can vary.

 

Bath fillers

Bath fillers provide a straight flow of water at a steady temperature. They're a step up from basin mixer taps and are often used in smaller bathrooms. If you want to be able to fill your bath quickly at a constant temperature, then this is the best option for you!

 

Bath shower mixer taps

Bath shower mixers are for those who want something a little more luxurious. They're often taller than basin mixer taps and feature multiple spray, jet, or waterfall options. If you like to take baths but also like the convenience of having a shower in the same room, then this is an option to consider.

 

Bidet mixer taps

Bidet mixer taps are a bit of a rarity in most homes. They're mainly found in Europe and add a touch of luxury to your bathroom. If you have a bidet in the same room as your basin, then this would be the ideal purchase for you!

 

Shower valves

Shower valves are different from mixer taps. Mixer taps allow you to change the flow of water and the temperature, but valves allow you to turn your shower on or off completely. If you're redecorating a small bathroom, then this may be the best option for you.

 

2) Bathroom tap styles

 

Next, you need to think about the style that's right for your bathroom. There are two options: Traditional or contemporary.

 

Traditional bathroom taps

Traditionally styled taps have a classic design that includes a spherical shape, decorative handles, and levers that are easy to turn.

 

Contemporary bathroom taps

A contemporary style has sharp lines, straight edges and incorporates modern materials like chrome or brushed steel. It's usually more streamlined than the traditional styles.

3) Bathroom taps: Which finish to choose?

 

Bathroom taps are available in the following finishes: Chrome, Matt Black, Gold, Brushed Nickel, and Brass

 

The finishes you choose will depend on your style and taste.

 

Chrome

Chrome is a good choice if you're looking for a modern look. It's one of the most popular finishes and it will suit almost any bathroom style

 

Matt black

Matt black is a good choice if you're looking for a subtle, understated look.

 

Gold

Gold taps are popular in more traditional bathrooms. They won't suit very modern bathrooms.

 

Brushed Nickel

Brushed nickel is a good choice if you're looking for something in between gold and chrome. It's popular with people who want to keep their bathroom light, but still have something that stands out.

 

Brass

Brass is a good choice if you want something in a traditional style. It's more suited to older bathrooms with lots of character

4) Which mounting type is right for me?

 

Next, you need to think about the mounting type. There are three options: Deck Mounted, Wall Mounted, and Pillar Mounted.

 

Deck Mounted Taps

A deck mounted tap (also known as a gooseneck) sits on top of the sink and can be moved in 360 degrees for easy access to fill up buckets

 

Wall Mounted Taps

Wall-mounted taps are mounted directly to the wall and don't move at all. This makes them ideal for those who want a permanent fixture

 

Pillar Mounted Taps

A pillar-mounted tap is a small spout that doesn't move at all. It is more of a classic design.

 

5) Bathroom Tap Brands:

 

RAK Ceramics

At their 22 state-of-the-art factories in the United Arab Emirates, India, and Bangladesh, they produce roughly 123 million square meters of tiles and 5 million sanitaryware components each year. This means they can produce durable, long-lasting products at very competitive prices.

 

That means you can make your bathroom more luxurious than ever before with their wide range of styles and designs!

 

RAK Ceramics is one of the largest ceramics brands in the world. Get the peace of mind that comes with knowing you're getting an authentic, well-established brand.

 

The first business in the United Arab Emirates to be certified by ISO 9001 from a UK-recognised certification body "CICS" (Ceramic Research Institute Certification Scheme) was RAK Ceramics. It received this accreditation for ceramic tiles and sanitarywares.

 

With the assurance of an ISO certification, you'll be more comfortable with your purchase. You can be certain that you're receiving high-quality items from a reliable and established company.

 

6) Bathroom tap head shapes:

 

There are three main tap head shapes: crosshead, lever, and knob shape.

 

Crosshead taps

Crosshead taps typically have a more modern look with the spout of the tap directly over the handle. Because it can be hard to grip and twist these taps once they're wet we don't recommend them for the family bathroom.

 

Lever Taps

Lever taps are the most common type of tap. The spout is controlled by a handle that's attached to an internal mechanism called a cam which adjusts the flow of water. Many lever taps have two cams so you can switch the flow between hot and cold easily.

 

Knob Taps

A knob tap is where you twist the tap to adjust the temperature and flow. These taps look and feel like something you would find on a traditional or vintage model, making them very popular in older properties.

 

7) Other things to consider

 

Bathroom tap valve type: manual or thermostatic

  • Manually operated taps are the most common type of tap. These include traditional quarter turn or screw style taps, levers, and crosshead taps.
  • Thermostatic valves allow you to control the temperature automatically. They turn off automatically when the desired temperature has been reached so no more burning hands.

Tap handles: one or two

  • With a one-handle tap, a single knob allows you to control both the hot and cold water supply, switching between them by simply moving the handle up or down.
  • A two-handle tap has separate controls for the hot and cold water supply. One will be for the hot water with an indicator on it to show that it is the hot water. The other is for the cold water with an indicator to show that it is the cold water.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Which bathroom taps are best?

There is no definite answer to this question as it depends on your preferences. The best advice we can give you is that the taps should suit the feel of your bathroom as a whole.

  • What do you call bathroom taps?

Bathroom taps are also known as bathroom faucets

  • What style of bathroom taps should I get?

Again, it's a matter of personal preference but if you're unsure, always go for something timeless and traditional. For example, chrome mixer taps have been popular in bathrooms for some time now and will be for many years to come.

  • How can I stop my bathroom taps from dripping?

A tap that drips constantly not only looks bad but it wastes water and costs you money. Luckily, there's a quick and easy fix! All you need is some PTFE tape (also known as plumbers tape). This will take the place of the washers in your taps and stop them from dripping.

  • How do I install bathroom taps?

To properly install a bath tap you'll need to know how to work with hot and cold water supplies, turning off the water feeding into the building, finding the main stop valve (often located in for example for an understairs cupboard), and removing and preparing the existing bath tap.

  • Are bathroom taps a standard size?

In the UK, taps are standard. The size of a tap is how it fits onto the pipe, not the size of the tap itself. There are two types: bath and basin. Bath taps typically have 3/4" threads and basin taps typically have 1/2" threads.

  • What are good brands for taps?

As a company, we use and recommend RAK Ceramics. They are one of the largest ceramics’ brands in the world. Their mission is to make bathroom products that are easier, more functional and with state of the art style. Your taps will most likely come designed by them anyway but if not, they are one of the most reputable brands in the industry!
