When looking at bathroom suites, it is easy to get flooded with the vast choice of options available, from bathroom mirror cabinets and power showers; through to antique bath tubs and even bathroom underfloor heating systems.
Many people let their creative streaks flow and kit out their bathrooms with all of the latest mod cons. However, when the pennies have dried up, it is often the essential items, such as bathroom taps, which have been overlooked.
Many people put up with the constant dripping from awkwardly-shaped taps, which can become a nightmare to clean – along with handles that fall off if they are swung too hard. Not to mention those bathroom taps which give no control over the water temperature, so you end up having to plunge your hand under the freezing cold tap to relieve being scalded by uncontrollable heat from the hot. Despite these annoyances, many still go on to install a new shower, put up a new backlit bathroom mirror and replace the folding shower door at least two or three times before realising that changing the bathroom taps would have been much better than putting up with them for the years gone by. For less than £45 and half an hour of their time, a lot of inconvenience and aggravation could have been avoided.
In the past, taps were simply just taps, and the focal point was upon the vitreous china embossed with a leading brand name. Nowadays, things have reversed and taps are now En Vogue when it comes to bringing out the best in bathroom suites. Follow the urge to replace them so that you do not land yourself in hot water.
Bathroom taps – the little things that can make a big difference.
