5 Considerations to Help you Choose the Right Tapware

When it comes to tapware, you may be fitting sets to the basin, benchtop, wall, bath, ceiling or even the floor. The most important considerations when choosing bathroom tapware are:

1. Functionality.
2. Where existing plumbing connections and services are located.
3. Bathroom design and style.
4. Space.
5. Replacement parts.

1. Functionality

The bathroom is a functional space where everything is easily accessed – and easily cleaned. You may need taps mounted low for easy access or hand-held showerheads, which can make bathing (and cleaning the shower much more comfortable for everyone in the household).

2. Existing Connections

Before you start your renovation, you will need to know how tapware will be mounted. Builders and plumbers will need to ensure all services are lined up correctly to accommodate your dream tapware.

3. Bathroom Design

What colours and styles appeal to you? Your bathroom is your space to relax, pamper and wash the worries of the day away. Visit our showrooms to experience how different designs feel. Do you want your tapware to subtly complement the bathroom design or be a key design element in your bathroom?

4. Space

Space will be a critical factor in the type of tapware you choose. For example, tight spaces benefit from wall mounting because it frees up basin and bench space. If you have ample space, floor-mounted bath fillers that stretch up and over a bath can create a stunning aesthetic.

5. Replacement Parts

Down the track, if any repairs or replacements are required, consider how easy it will be to locate replacement parts. Your plumber will find that replacement parts will be easier to come by if you have chosen reputable, trusted brands. Having to re-do waterproofing and tiling to suit a complete set of new tapware can be costly and inconvenient.

We want to see you have a positive bathroom renovation experience. We also want you to be able to fly through warranties, replacement parts and any other challenges that may pop up over the lifetime of your bathroom.

We choose products that have proven to withstand the test of time and companies who give exceptional post-sales service. For example, brands like Caroma; Dorf; Phoenix; Linsol; Abey; Conserv; Methven; Ikon and many more.
