Which Bath Tap Is Perfect For You?
Changing your bath taps is a great way to give your bathroom suite a new lease of life. Perhaps you’re tired of your current look or searching for a more convenient way to shower in your bath – either way, we’ve got plenty of options to choose from:
- Pillar Taps
- Filler Mixer Taps
- Bath Shower Mixer Taps
- Waterfall Bath Taps
- Wall Mounted Bath Taps
- Freestanding Bath Taps
- Thermostatic Bath Shower Mixer Taps
Overwhelmed by choice? Don’t panic! We’ll explain everything below.
Pillar Taps require two tap holes to be cut, meaning if you currently own a bath with a single hole but have no plans to replace it, you won’t be able to mount these taps. However, if you are looking to replace the bath and get a new set of taps or your current bath has two holes cut already, then our baths do not come pre-cut so they can be mounted on any bath of your choice! Your plumber will drill the holes during installation so be sure to buy the taps alongside the bath – otherwise, it’ll be difficult to install!
In general, these types of taps tend to lean towards a more traditional style which is perfect for you if you have/are looking to create a traditional suite. Our Pure Bath Taps, £34.97, are prime examples of traditional pillar bath taps. The solid brass core and chrome finish provide a stunning shine and a body which will last for years – we even provide a guarantee on these taps for 10 years!
Filler Mixer Taps
Filler Mixer Taps are similar to pillar taps except they have a single spout for both hot and cold water – the water is mixed together inside the tap, which is where the name comes from. They’re ideal for people who prefer precise control over temperature and flow, which makes this a great tap for families.
Available with modern, traditional and contemporary designs to suit almost any suite, whilst delivering the best of what we have to offer – solid brass cores, chrome finishes, ceramic disc technology and an industry-leading 10 years ‘Fit and Forget’ guarantee.
The Serene Bath Filler Mixer Tap, £54.97, is the perfect modern tap for the modern bathroom.
Bath Shower Mixer Taps
Looking for a tap with a built-in shower hand-unit? These taps are perfect for you! With a style to suit every taste, they’re ideal for your bathroom suite and provide a handheld showerhead unit for easy rinsing after your bath. Manufactured with not only appearance in mind, but also build quality too.
Whether you’re looking for a sharp-edged tap, or tap to complement a traditional freestanding bath and suite, there’s enough choice to suit every need!

Waterfall Bath Taps
Just as the name leads you to believe, these taps become the feature of your bathroom suite. The specially crafted spout creates a waterfall-like appearance, which does not reduce functionality but adds an extremely modern touch to your bathroom suite.
Starting from as little as £49.97, these taps are extremely affordable and offer a unique twist to your bathroom which will not go out of style for years to come.
The Relax Waterfall Bath Filler Mixer Tap, £69.97 is a stunning example of this type of tap. The large flat faces of the chrome exterior add light to much-needed corners, brightening up your suite and adding to the illusion of extra space.
Freestanding Bath Taps
Freestanding bath taps offer a truly unique experience, unlike any other. The minimalistic approach to its installation leaves a very clean looking tap, which features ceramic disc technology and a solid brass core alongside a handheld shower unit for quick and easy rinsing at the press of a button.
These taps are designed to be used with certain freestanding baths, such as our Yang 1785x835mm Luxury Freestanding Bath, which cannot be drilled for installing regular taps. The Wave Freestanding Bath Shower Mixer Tap stands at 939mm from the floor, giving you plenty of space to position and install it over your bath and bathe with ease.
Thermostatic Bath Shower Mixer Taps
Our thermostatic bath shower mixers feature dual controls for temperature and flow, for a quick and easy bath. Unlike many other taps, these are fully-fledged showers in one! Making them perfect for L and P shaped bath tubs and families alike. Regardless of whether you’re wanting a bath or a shower, these tabs allow you to choose either on the spot!
