At UK Bathrooms we cater for many different tastes. We have solid looking traditional taps that would fit perfectly into a Victorian bathroom, right through to the latest designs for the most modern and luxuriously appointed sanctuary spaces. You'll find both mixer taps - where you have hot and cold taps but the water comes from a single spout, and monoblocs - where hot and cold come from a single tap controlled with a lever. And if you just want two straightforward taps then we have plenty of those too!
If you live in an area with low water pressure you'll no doubt know about it. Look for bathroom taps that include the note to say that they're designed for low pressure use. Others may state a minimum recommeded pressure.
UK Bathrooms stock a wide range from many of the brands you know such as Hansgrohe, Crosswater, Keuco, Bristan and Armitage Shanks. Our web pages tell you all you need to know and you can order simply online, with your taps and all other fittings delivered within a few days provided they are all in stock.
Have you recently redecorated your bathroom and are looking for the perfect accessories? Or maybe your bathroom is looking tired and you want to buy new fixtures and fittings to bring it into the 21st century?
Once upon a time, bathroom taps only came in a handful of styles and most bathrooms looked the same. The humble tap was looked on as a practicality rather than an opportunity to inject style and design into your home.
Now there are so many taps and mixers available for your bathroom that the choice can seem overwhelming. We’ve put together the ultimate bathroom taps and mixers buyers' guide to give you all the information you need to choose the best product for your bathroom.
Basin mixer taps are one of the most commonly bought taps for millions of bathrooms around the world. A good mixer tap is a stylish addition to your sink while also allowing you to get the perfect temperature water at the turn of a handle.
For the more modern bathroom, a classic chrome mixer tap in a sharp design can give your bathroom a sleek and cutting edge feel. The Grohe Eurocube basin mixer tap has a sharp, right angled design which has a top mounted lever.
The single lever gives you control over both the water flow and temperature by moving upwards and side to side. The SilkMove technology included in this monobloc basin mixer is exclusive to Grohe products and guarantees smooth operation.
If you want a style with a more rounded design, look at the Crosswater Wisp basin mixer tap. Its slimline design takes up minimal space, while also complementing your bathroom’s decor. The monobloc also comes with a 15 year guarantee, so you can be assured of peace of mind.
For smaller basins, the Crosswater Water Square Mini Basin is perfect. The stunning design has a waterfall-style spout which is small enough to fit into a cloakroom or small area. The mixer tap has a short handle and is guaranteed to add a touch of the contemporary to your bathroom. This tap also comes with a 15 year guarantee for your peace of mind.
If you really want to get the full futuristic feel for your bathroom, why not choose a basin mixer which has an infrared activation? This hands-free system means you can operate your tap without worrying about spreading germs.
For the more traditional bathroom, you can choose from a range of mixer tap designs with functional hot and cold water knobs. The Imperial Cou basin mixer kit sees the controls and spout form one beautifully designed piece of metalwork. This is a unique piece which is sure to give any bathroom a stylish look.
The mixer uses ceramic disc technology to make sure the water comes out perfectly and it comes complete with a stopper for your sink. It comes in three finishes – chrome, gold or nickel – so you can be sure it will fit into your home.
For a really stunning mixer tap you can go with a three hole design such as the Imperial Pre. This is made from durable brassware and is styled around an elegant Victoria bathroom tap. It can be used in basins with three holes and also comes in three finishes.
If you don’t think a mixer tap is the right choice for your basin, there is also a wide range of separate taps to give your bathroom a modern feel. There are hundreds of options for a contemporary pair of taps which will suit your bathroom.
Traditional bathrooms can indulge in exquisitely designed taps such as the Imperial Regent range. These taps are mirrored on the Edwardian style and can be used in modern bathrooms just as easily as the more traditional home. The unique, lever-style handles give your basin a smart feel.
The Burlington Anglesey Regent taps bring sophistication and a timeless quality to any bathroom. These taps are ideal for period homes and will give your bathroom a traditional feel. A 10 year guarantee guards against any manufacturing defects.
For the smaller cloakroom, Burlington Birkenhead taps are perfectly designed. The spouts are shorter than usual, which means they are ideal for hand basins in tight spaces. They are inlaid with white, which gives them their Victorian appearance.
There are several bath shower mixer systems which come with a pair of taps and a showerhead, or even as a complete, combined unit. The benefits of combined bath taps with a shower are that you can adjust the temperature and get the exact combination of hot and cold water you desire.
Products like the Grohe Linear single lever shower mixer are an eye-catching, straightforward design. The simplicity of having the whole system controlled by one lever is complemented by the ability to switch between using the tap or showerhead with just the touch of a button. This wall-mounted system is suitable for most baths and showers. This model also includes an optional temperature limiter for your piece of mind and the stunning chrome finish adds a modern twist to any bathroom suite.
Another contemporary addition to your bath would be the Crosswater Elite which comes complete with handset. This slimline, dramatic design couples simplicity with practicality. It is deck mounted and has a side-mounted single lever design which controls both water flow and temperature.
If you are looking for a more traditional design, the Imperial Crown Lever bath shower mixer has several unique features. The lever-style ceramic handles are both long lasting and attractive. It has the added benefit of being suitable for high and low pressure systems, and will definitely add a classy touch to your bathroom suite. It also comes in three finishes to suit your tastes.
How many hours do you spend relaxing in the bath staring at ugly or worn out taps? Change that by transforming your bathroom with a new mixer tap for your bath. A mixer tap can give you the perfect temperature water all from one spout making bath time an easy experience.
If you’re looking for a mixer tap with a truly eye catching design, then look no further than the Crosswater Kai lever tall bath filler. This modern system fits in just as well with a traditional home as well as the more contemporary. It slots onto the bath and the lever handles add to the simplistic design.
For timeless elegance, the Imperial Notte Stopcock Kit has beautiful chrome, gold or nickel design which contrasts perfectly with the black ceramic handles. The striking effect of this kit has to be seen, and will provide the perfect finishing touch to your bathroom’s design.
Running a bath isn’t always the most exciting task, but if you have an elegant pair of taps it can give your evening ritual a much more luxurious feel. By using separate taps, you can adjust the hot and cold water independently and mix the water in the bath itself. You are also able to add just hot or just cold water if you find the water isn’t at quite the right temperature after the bath is run.
Crosswater’s Design Deck Mounted valves have an effortless yet sophisticated look. These fittings, which attach directly onto your bath, wouldn’t look out of place in a five star hotel. The minimalist fixtures are suitable for both high and low pressure heating systems and are very affordable.
The Imperial Victorian bath filler taps are the perfect addition to a classic design and will add a timeless feel to your room. These taps are designed and built to withstand many years of use, and the system can be used in both high and low pressure systems.
For a more unusual appearance, pick taps from the Burlington Anglesey range. The classic design is almost regal in appearance with a bevelled mounting area which fixes straight onto your bath. These taps also take the traditional crosshead handles in a new direction – quite literally – as the arms are angled downward. The highly polished chrome will be a clean and noticeable addition to your bathroom.
Once you’ve kitted out your bath and basin with new fittings, the next thing to do is make sure your bidet is also brought up to date. Most bidets are designed with just one tap hole which means the best choice usually is a mixer tap system.
Bidet taps come in different configurations including both free flowing and pop up waste functions. In the systems with a pop up waste function, there is lever on the back or to the side of the mixer tap itself which allows you to open and close the drain. This gives you the option to fill the bidet or allow water to drain away while it is in use.
The Grohe Eurosmart Bidet Mixer is an effortless design which will suit nearly every home. The self-contained unit has a chrome and soil repellent finish which prevents it from becoming damaged or tarnished. The mixer comes with flexible connection hoses as well as a five year guarantee.
You can also get an easily-integrated bidet mixer tap from Imperial with their Niveau Bidet Mono Mixer Kit. This design would match with traditional and modern fittings to tie in perfectly with your overall bathroom design. The striking handle design will work with both modern lines and crosshead taps, making this a truly versatile system.
Once you’ve chosen your perfect taps, shower systems and bidet mixers, don’t forget to pick up a matching fitting for your basin.
You can get an innovative flip design from Crosswater with the flip top basin waste. The popular pivot design swivels through 360 degrees at just a touch. A rubber seal around the edge of the metal makes sure your basin remains watertight when it is in place.
Another innovative Crosswater design is the free flow waste system. This sits in your basin and cannot be closed, so will not be suitable if you need your sink to hold water from time to time.
If you’d like the look of a free flow system but keep the ability to close off the drain and use the sink to hold water, the Hansgrohe Click Clack push system is ideal. This gives the basin a smart look while also being practical and easy to use.
The innovative design can be used in basins with overflow systems. Simply push down to seal the basin and fill with water then when you are finished, just push the plug once more to release it and drain away the waste water.
It is strong enough to withstand everyday use and can be put into most standard sized basins.
A more traditional design is the Imperial range which comes with a chain and attached plug. This is only suitable for basins with a pre-drilled chain hole however, so check before you buy. The benefit to a removable plug is it is easier to clean and it will complement a bathroom with a more traditional design.
And don’t forget to get matching fixtures for the rest of your basin. The Burlington Round Bottom Traditional Bottle Trap will match perfectly with traditional taps on your basin and bath. It is made from durable brass but finished in chrome to give a polished feel to your bathroom suite. The Edwardian design will complete the look of a wall-mounted basin and add a vintage touch to your bathroom. The classic design is created with the latest in manufacturing techniques, so it may look decades old, but it will be serving your family for decades to come.
Black taps are becoming increasingly popular for a few reasons. Firstly, they are beautiful to look at, certainly different and the matt finish is easier to keep clean. They also sync well with other current trends such as the industrial style, the Scandi look and a classic black and white colour scheme. Black taps look brilliant contrasted against a crisp white bathroom suite and wall tiles, and will immediately add a high end luxury feel to any design style and blend well with any other accent colour. Black just goes with everything and anything and always looks fabulous.
A bath shower mixer tap allows the use of a shower function over a bath, which is a practical choice when space is limited or customers simply want the best of both worlds; the water can be diverted to a shower or to fill the bath. Within the tap a built in valve mixes the hot and cold water supply together so the tap delivers it at the desired temperature. Usually the flow out of the tap is stronger than you would receive with an electric shower, but it is dependent on the pressure of the property’s water system.
If you are mounting bath taps on an acrylic bath the tap holes will not be pre-drilled into the bath. Taps come with a template that your fitter can use to quickly and easily drill the desired tap holes. If you are using a bath with pre-drilled tap holes then this will be a standard size and any taps you choose will be suitable.
Bath mixers and bath taps have a standard width between the tap holes which is 180mm. Most of the taps we sell are a 180mm, we have technical diagrams on each of the taps to ensure your new taps are going to fit your new or existing bath.
There are other factors to consider too: a free standing bath will probably require a floor standing or wall mounted tap unit, and a smaller sized bath will need a suitably sized tap system as it would look unbalanced with anything over large.
Let’s split this down into two scenarios.
Replacing existing bathroom taps like-for-like:
Swapping over old taps for new ones can be a simple procedure if they are all the same type and size, as they will fit into the pre-existing tap holes and pipework. For instance, a pair of traditional style taps on a bath or basin which are looking tired and worn can be replaced with a modern version of the same tap, giving the whole room an instant update. Just ensure the new taps chosen are suitable to be used with your property’s water pressure.
Replacing existing bathroom taps with different units:
Depending on the existing tap set up, it may not be possible to install a new taps to an older bath or basin. For example, a modern mixer or Monobloc unit requiring one single hole will probably not fit into an enamel bath which has previously had traditional hot and cold single taps, as there will be two holes. Also, tap units are only compatible for use with certain levels of water pressure so this will need to be checked. Finally, modern tap units may be larger, requiring more space against the wall, under the basin or bath panel which might not fit. In any of these circumstances, a new bath or basin may be the best option.
