As we own a number of properties where most were renovated from the ground up, we’ve gained plenty of experience replacing bathroom taps over the years.
The latest modern styles are our favourite to install because they can instantly modernise any bathroom. From the rainfall style to the curvy basin tap shown in the photo, we’ve installed multiple over the years.
However, the choice of design is a matter of personal preference and there is a wide range of bathroom tap designs to choose from at your disposal.
To keep up our commitment to reviewing and testing the latest bathroom taps (for this article), we are continually testing the latest offerings from top brands in the UK. This means that when we notice a brand has released a new and improved tap, we will attempt to buy it and put it to the test (where applicable).
To give you an idea of how much of a difference a new modern bathroom tap can make to your wash space, below are before and after photos of a recent installation we carried out. As you can see, it makes a huge difference and most taps come with other hardware such as a matching waste too.
Below is a video that we posted on our YouTube channel that shows one of our most recent installations. As you can see from the video, it’s built to a very high standard (as you would expect from the Bristan brand) and the slightly curved design allows water to simply fall off. This is important as it prevents water and general dirt from sitting on the flat surface.
As well as our experience installing multiple mixer and basin taps, we also based our recommendations on the latest research and multiple factors. Some of the factors that we took into consideration included the type, style, build quality, supplied hardware, water pressure requirements, warranty and value for money.
