The Luxurious Bathroom Addition


The bidet, a luxurious bathroom addition that is often misunderstood. Dating back centuries, the bidet has been something of a grey area in bathrooms, but as bathrooms are designed to luxurious standards, the bidet is making a comeback.

The bidet has been gracing bathrooms around the world for many years and has increased in popularity the last few years. In many cases they have been installed for show, a luxurious edge on a bathroom design.

What many don’t know is that the simple bidet is a hygienic choice for any bathroom. The ideal solution for the elderly and is also known to be a must for those who suffer from urinary tract infections.

While the bidet may just become an item on show in your luxury bathroom, it’s not as simple as all that. Bidets have taps and you need to choose your bidet taps with care. You want them to blend in with all your other fixtures and fittings in the space, complement the bathroom and maybe even become the wow statement you were hoping to achieve.

Bidet taps are simple, they are a single tap with a level to manage the water pressure and temperature. The spout is somewhat different from a regular tap in that you can move it to the direction you want it to flow.

The CU Series Bidet Mixer is a fantastic choice for the modern bathroom where you have already chose square taps and products for your bathroom. These bidet taps are square in design, very stylish and will blend in beautifully with your current design. The only cylindrical part on this bidet tap is the spout, which you can move as you wish.

The PL Series is a cylindrical design. It’s a modern and stylish design finished in gleaming chrome to complement any bathroom design. A single level manages water pressure and temperature and again the spout can be moved to direct water flow.

Then there is the AR Series, also modern bidet taps. These are cylindrical in design to complement any modern or traditional bathroom. These bidet taps also give you control of the direction of the water flow with a lever that manages temperature and pressure.

Remember that you want everything to blend in together when designing your bathroom. If you have chosen straight lines, such as squares and rectangles from your bathroom products to taps, the you want a square designed bidet tap to bring the design together and give your bathroom a sophisticated finish.

An Easy Guide To Selecting Basin Taps


When choosing basin taps there are a few things to take into consideration, while you may see taps that really appeal to you, you need to ensure they blend in with all your other bathroom fixtures and fittings and that they will work with your new bathroom basin.

Tap Mountings

Before you go online and buy your new basin taps you will need to determine where and how you intend to mount your new taps. Does your basin have two tap holes or one? How close together are the two holes? These are important factors you need to take into consideration and that will help you find the right taps on your first try.

The basin taps you get are pillar taps, these are when you have two holes in your basin, one for hot and one for cold. Preferably if you have chosen a basin with these holes your bath will be the same.

Mixer basin taps are for when you have one hole in your basin for your tap, these taps use the same outlet for both hot and cold, mixing the water to your desired temperature and pressure.

The Finish

Your basin taps should be finished the same as all the other taps in your bathroom. My personal favourite is chrome, it blends in beautifully with the white bathroom products and is very modern and stylish.

There are a variety of materials to choose from, but if you are looking for elegance and style you may want to go with the chrome finish where you can match your bath taps, shower head and even your designer radiator to your basin taps.

Complementing The Space

The one mistake I have seen so many households make when choosing bathroom taps is not taking the design of the bathroom into consideration. Taps are available in the traditional design or very ultra-modern designs such as the stunning ZD Series Mono Basin Mixer, which is straight edged and modern with an unusual curve.

Now this basin tap may be what you have been dreaming of but will look out of place in a traditional or cottage bathroom. The same as if you are designing a modern bathroom and your bathroom products are all square and stylish, then the traditional pillar taps such as the JA Series basin taps would look out of place and ruin your overall design.
