You would think the little things like taps choices wouldn’t make much difference to your bathroom design, however these can make or break your bathroom.


The first step is to have a plan, budget and style.

It is important to ensure your bathroom will work with the style of the rest of your home.  The design needs to be functional as well as pleasing to the eye.

Avoid anything too trendy, particularly with tiles that are expensive to replace.  You can always go a little wild with towels and accessories and then update as fashion changes.


The bathtub and basin are usually the items that determine your style. That’s why it’s a good idea to take a good look at them before making the decision about other fixtures.

Try to match the shape and the design – for example, an oval sink will require similarly shaped fixtures to achieve that sleek look while a vintage tub will need luxurious-looking fixtures to complete that delicate design.


The showerhead is the most important fitting in the bathroom. If you are going to overspend on anything, let it be this.  There are so many options too.  Rain shower heads give you the feeling of standing underneath a water fall. Dual fixtures mean more than one person can enjoy the shower at a time and many opt for a hand held shower head as well – these a popular for offering different spray settings, from an invigorating massage spray to a gentle aerated spray.


For your taps consider the practical – do you like taps with separate knobs for hot and cold water or a single hand control?

Then it is up to your style – for a Hamptons look, choose classic chrome tapware alongside white cabinetry.  For a more Scandanavian look choose black, white and grey against blonde timber. Gunmetal for a industrial look and gold fittings for a glamourous edge.
