When you’re planning a build or renovation, tapware is the ‘bling’ that makes your wet areas really shine! There are plenty of options on the market to suit most tastes, so it pays to do your research. If your budget allows, it’s best to choose the best quality tapware possible, as it will last much longer than cheaper products.

Wall mounted tapware

Wall mounted tapware is popular, with a range of sleek, sophisticated designs that suit a range of applications. Wall mounting taps this way is great for tight spaces, as they don’t take up space on the benchtop or impact your sink, meaning if you’ve been hankering for that luxurious vessel basin, you can have it!

Top mounted tapware

If you’d prefer a more traditional approach, top mounted taps come in a range of styles, from goose neck to modern. Installed next to the basin in the benchtop or within the basin itself, top mounted taps are functional and classic.

Colours and finishes

Gone are the days where tapware was only available in chrome. There is a plethora of colours and finishes available, including:

  • Chrome
  • Satin (or brushed) chrome
  • Matte black
  • Gun metal grey
  • Rose gold
  • Polished or brushed brass.

Pairing metallic tapware with organic cabinetry finishes and stone benchtops creates an elegant finish in any bathroom and the options are endless – if you’re stuck for ideas, a quick google or Pinterest search will give you plenty of inspiration.
