Bathroom Faucets

Types of Bathroom Faucets and Taps

There are so many different types of bathroom faucets and taps available as well as finishes, so what we will focus on is what they are used for, the styles and the ergonomic properties of taps and the faucet.

The best way to select them, after you have read through these definitions on the links to follow, is to visit your local plumbing and tapware merchant and try them out yourself.

Feel the action of turning the faucets on, see if it is comfortable, make sure there is enough room for your hands to get a good grip, remembering that they are wet when you need to turn them off, and check that the spout or where the water comes out will reach the desired destination.

I have seen many projects where the water runs straight from the sinkmixer, straight down the plughole.

Below are the areas that we will address with links for further information.
