One of the easiest ways to transform your bathroom is simply to fit new taps. Basins and baths suddenly take on a whole new look, and your existing fittings can be updated into a style to suit the rest of your property. Of course, the trick is to buy the right product, and this is where Bathrooms 365 can help. With a huge range of products to choose from, you are sure to be able to find the perfect tap. The obvious choice for tubs is the bath shower mixer taps that functions both as bath filler and as a shower. Even in bathrooms where a separate shower enclosure is fitted, there is still an advantage in having an additional over-bath shower with a detachable showerhead.
The traditional bath shower mixer fits into the pre-formed tap holes found in most tubs and consists of a pair of taps, usually with "X" shaped handles and the shower head resting in a cradle above the taps. This general layout is common to many such models, but nowadays it is possible to get single lever operated taps or stylish end-placed ones in all kinds of styles. Of course, if the fitting of this faucet is just part of a major refurbishment, or a new-build, a completely different style of bath may be chosen, in which case a wall-mounted bath shower mixer may be preferable. Whatever your needs, we have the ideal fittings.
