From the classic and traditional to the sleek and modern, finding new taps to enhance the design of your bathroom shouldn’t be a problem at CheapSuites.co.uk. In this buyer’s guide we explain everything you need to know about bathroom taps.
At CheapSuites.co.uk we have a superb range of bathroom taps at unbeatable prices including sink taps, bath taps, bath fillers and bath shower mixers. Our bathroom taps have a solid brass construction to ensure long lasting durability, while the chrome plated finish blends in perfectly with any bathroom décor. Each tap also incorporates ceramic disc technology.
If you’re on a budget, fitting new taps provides an easy and affordable way to create a fresh, new look without having a complete overhaul, and they provide those all-important finishing touches in a new bathroom.
When choosing new bathroom taps take a look at the shape and style of your sink. Sinks with a rounded shape look great with curvy basin taps, and sinks with square lines work well with angular shaped taps.
Before ceramic disc technology, old taps made use of rubber washers to prevent dripping, this used to work well until the rubber started to crack, and then the dripping would annoyingly return. Ceramic discs keep going for way longer than rubber washers, and will not wear out. A tap that has a rubber washer closes by screwing the head into the body, so as the rubber starts to wear out you’ll need to screw the tap tighter to get it to stop. With a ceramic disc, all that’s needed to stop the tap is a quarter turn. So, bring your bathroom into the 21st century by upgrading those old-fashioned taps!
Basins taps are available in two main styles including mono basin mixers and basin pillar taps. A mono basin mixer has been designed for use with a one tap-hole basin, while pillar taps are for use with a sink that has two tap-holes. A mono basin mixer has a single lever that controls both the flow and temperature of the water.
Bath taps come in a range of styles too including bath pillar taps, bath fillers and bath shower mixers. Bath fillers are great for creating a neat finish and are a really popular choice, while bath shower mixers are supplied with a shower handset that’s attached to a flexible hose, so rinsing your kid’s hair and around the bath when cleaning is a doddle.
At CheapSuites.co.uk we recommend that your bathroom taps should only be cleaned with warm, soapy water followed by rinsing and drying with a soft cloth to remove any water marks. Some bathroom cleaning products contain harsh chemicals, which can damage the chrome plating, so avoid using these types of products to keep your taps looking tip top condition.
Don’t forget about a basin and bath waste when you’re buying new bathroom taps.
Standard basin wastes are the most common type and are simply operated by a plug and chain mechanism; these are only suitable for sinks with two tap-holes.
Pop-up basin wastes are operated by a rod at either the back or the front of the mono mixer tap. The rod lifts the plug in and out of position. There are also push button wastes, which are operated by pressing down to plug the sink, and then pressing again to pop the waste back up.
When choosing a sink waste, you’ll need to check if the basin has an overflow or not. If there is an overflow, you must choose a slotted waste, and if it doesn’t have one then an unslotted waste is required.
Bath wastes are also available in various styles including standard plug and chain wastes, pop-up bath wastes and exposed wastes which are only for use with a freestanding roll top bath.
At CheapSuites.co.uk we even sell kitchen taps, which provide an easy and affordable way to bring the look of any kitchen up-to-date.
