There are different types of bath fillers available in the market. They come in three basin fitting styles.
- Deck mounted: inset in your bath surface.
- Wall mounted: inset in the wall adjacent to your bath
- Pillar: freestanding and inset in the bathroom floor.
Design - - are you a traditionalist or modernistic at heart? In all three fitting styles, you have a wide range of designs to suit your requirement, from traditional through to modern to downright eclectic! If you're a traditionalist at heart, you might consider a cross head or lever design bath filler, reminiscent of the elegance of the Victorian and Edwardian eras, perhaps with a telephone style shower handset.
Or your tastes may run to the sleek, contemporary feel; preferring slick tubular curves or the sharp square lines of a waterfall tap to provide a minimalistic edge - ideal for design purists looking for on-trend bathroom styling.
What Else Do I need to Know?
Other options to consider are the ways in which hot and cold water will be provided. Do you prefer separate pillar taps or a mixer? Standard or thermostatic mixer taps can be safer for families with young children or the elderly as the temperature can be set to a safe level when filling the bath. Will you need a shower handset to accompany the brassware? Consider too what kind of installation will be required, as this can be important, especially when looking at timescale and cost of installation work.
