Shower and Bath Taps

Choosing your Perfect Shower or Bath Tap 

If you want to make a statement in your bathroom, and you’d like to wrap up the style and the efficiency of the bathroom, nothing finishes it off like your shower and bath taps.

Bathroom tapware makes the final statement and adds that finishing touch that you have been looking for. With dozens of styles to choose from, we’ve got bathroom tapware for every taste, every style and every budget.

Tapware may seem like a small part of your bathroom, but it not only helps to provide a finished look, it is also very important from the utility point of view. A relatively recent innovation for example, is the introduction of ceramic disc cartridges.

When choosing shower taps and bath taps, your biggest decision will probably be whether to go for mixer taps or three piece taps and faucets. To help, here are the differences of shower and bath taps explained: 

Mixer Tap

Mixer taps or faucets have a single spout and either have one handle or two on either side of the spout. Water flow and temperature is controlled by the handle which mixes the hot and cold water flow through a cartridge. The mixer tap is available for both contemporary and traditional bathrooms. When considering a mixer tap, be sure to check with your plumber in case additional plumbing is needed.

Three Piece Tap

Three piece bath or shower taps feature one central spout and hot and cold taps for ease of use. If you want a simple makeover without moving plumbing, or are looking to create a heritage / french provincial look, a three piece set might be your best option.   

Bath/Shower Diverter Mixers

Mixer diverters control temperature and where the water goes. For example, they can be used for diverting water between two different shower heads, say if you have both a rain and a hand shower, or between a shower and a bath spout. The diverter is used to switch water flow between the plumbing behind the wall.  

Freestanding Bath Mixers

Freestanding bath taps are floor mounted and create a strong modern look in your bathroom. Filter by mount to see our great range of floor spouts and floor mixers with and without hand showers.
