Designer taps that suit your décor
Remember to shop around online for a deal on your basin mixers. You may be surprised how cheap it is to buy from designer ranges that add aesthetic appeal to the humble sink. Remember that you can be limited by the options in a certain range, so look at the washbasin and faucets as a whole and match them to the other décor aspects in the bathroom. Three leading brands are Grohe, Ideal Standard and Hansgrohe, which represent a good place to start your search. Grohe have the Eurocube range for some really eye catching, cube shaped single-lever mixers, or have a look at Grohe Europlus for a standing tap that will suit free standing basins. Both have their trademarked StarLight chrome finish for a perfect shine. Hansgrohe meanwhile offer the Focus E2 single lever mixer which leans forward and has a ceramic cartridge. Hansgrohe Logis is an option for wall mounting, perfect for a minimal, concealed installation. Consider Keuco as an alternative for style, with the Elegance range which has a neat rotating handle and Keuco Plan for a great sensor operated mixer, perfect for those with arthritis. Ideal Standard have some models that offer a low pressure solution, such as the VITO range. Also check their Melange range out for almost organic looking faucets. For something really different, Dornbracht Tara includes matte black two-handle faucets that will suit a super-modern room. Dornbracht also produce eMOTE for a high-tech, wall mounted infrared unit. Consider Jado Geometry if you prefer elegant, angular shapes and Kludi BOZZ for a tall, long-piped mixer suitable for larger basins. Lastly, Steinberg are a good choice for a three-hole mixer with a curvy style. Take these as cues for finding your design inspiration. You can get the ideal washbasin for your bathroom scheme without spending much money, if you start from the taps down!
