Bathroom taps

Bathroom taps aren’t always the highest on the agenda when it comes to styling options, but they hold huge potential in making a serious impact on the overall feel of your decor. Besides, given the amount of time we spend in them, our bathrooms deserve a treat with some shiny new hardware. So, we’ve rounded up our top picks for bath, basins, freestanding models, mixer options and even a shower lever. You name it, there’s a style for any bathroom.

1. Claremont, Building Supplies Online 

We love a nice roll top bath as much as the next home maker and this ultra traditional design from Building Supplies Online combines modern technology with period design beautifully. You simply can’t go wrong with this one as it’ll find itself at home in virtually any cottage bathroom. Burlington is more a high end bathroom brand, so if you’ve got a more flexible budget, take a look at their range.

2. Castello, Victoria Plum

Make a solid style statement with Victoria Plum’s chic take on a traditional freestanding tap. The old world design is given an ultra cool makeover with the matte black finish, which will pair perfectly with tasteful tubs of almost any style. We’re big fans of how the tap details tie in perfectly with the monochrome scheme.

3. Traditional mixer, eBay

This tall mixer tap with a singular ceramic lever in traditional styling will make the perfect addition to a countertop basin. It emanates timeless decorum in the smooth curves of each piece, ultimately bringing little hint of modernity to a simple design. The tiny price tag is also a great bonus.

Whilst this design from Wickes might look a little standard, it’ll pack a serious punch when paired with a traditional style bathroom. The classic ceramic handles and soft curves of the tap shape make for an utterly timeless design that will complement a period basin nicely. You can’t go wrong with the white and silver combination.
