The basin taps in your bathroom are one of the features used most often. It makes complete sense to take your time when choosing basin taps to ensure you buy taps that match your bathroom's style and décor. All of the basin taps we have are high quality and available at competitive prices, so please spend time browsing through them. We know it can be overwhelming trying to choose from a wide range, which is why we have created the guide below, outlining important factors to consider when buying basin taps.
The materials all bathroom taps are made from is important, and while the final decision should be based on your own personal taste, it is worth knowing why others choose taps made from specific materials. Solid brass, for instance, is ideal because of its anti-corrosive properties and long lifespan. While ceramic basin taps are also popular for similar reasons.
As important as the materials basin taps are made from is, the exterior coating, or finish, is more important when it comes to aesthetics. We have basin taps available in three different finishes – gold, nickel and chrome. Gold is very popular and the ideal choice if you want a sophisticated bathroom that screams luxury. While nickel is very durable and has that classic appeal, it is also one of the more expensive option - but offers the best value. Chrome is perhaps the most popular, with its modern reflective shine that will give your bathroom a sparkling and clean look. Chrome is favoured due to its anti-scratch and anti-corrosive properties.
Water pressure is important to consider when choosing the type of basin tap you buy, particularly if your water system is low pressure as you are probably best choosing low-pressure basin taps. Waterfall basin taps, for instance, will not work well with low pressure water systems. So, if your home's water system has low pressure, choose appropriate basin taps from our range.
Bathroom size, basin design and space available are also factors you need to consider. At Serene Bathrooms, we are proud of the selection we have on offer and if you need any help or advice, please speak to our experience and friendly staff, who will help point you in the right direction.
