5 head-turning bathroom tap ideas for 2019

Posted by Adam Chard in Inspiration | 5 years ago 5 min read

If you’re searching for bathroom tap inspiration, we’ve got some real head-turners right here. Check out our 5 best bathroom tap ideas for 2019.

One of the easiest ways to freshen up a tired looking bathroom is to add a new set of taps to your bath and basin. However, if you are planning a new bathroom entirely, bathroom taps aren’t always the first items that spring to mind. In many cases, you’ll choose your suite, bath, shower and furniture before paying any attention to them.

When choosing the right taps for your bathroom design, it's certainly worth doing your homework. For example, a traditional suite may look a little odd with contemporary taps and a shower mixer might be a better option for your bath than separate pillar taps.

In this blog post, we’ve picked out 5 of our best bathroom tap ideas for 2019, to help you achieve a bathroom that looks great and performs perfectly.

1. Freestanding bath tap ideas 2019

With many homeowners looking to turn their bathroom into a home spa in 2019, freestanding baths are experiencing a surge in popularity. Undoubtedly one of the most luxurious ways in which to enjoy your bathing experience, you could choose a classic roll top bath (usually with ornate feet) or go for something more contemporary. Whichever type of tub you select, you’ll want a tap that fits seamlessly with your chosen design.

The perfect partner for any contemporary freestanding bath, this designer freestanding bath filler from Orchard Bathrooms is superior in every way.

Featuring a minimalist design, the tap is as elegant as it is simple, with an easy-to-use lever control. It comes complete with a rather useful, lightweight shower handset and a sparkling chrome finish.

Made from high quality brass for durability, ceramic disc internals ensure a good flow and non-drip use.

2. Countertop basin tap ideas 2019

Creating a genuine designer look and feel, countertop basin installations are proving incredibly popular with interior designers. As the edge of the basin usually sits higher than the countertop itself, it will require either wall mounted taps or a high rise basin mixer tap.

Mode Tate high rise basin mixer tap

A modern take on a classic design, this high rise basin mixer tap is a new addition to our range in 2019.

The cross handle taps and a curved spout give this contemporary tap a slightly more traditional appearance, whilst modern components ensure smooth control over water temperature and flow.

As part of the Tate collection, you’ll also discover a range of matching bath taps and shower valves, so your bathroom will look completely coordinated and utterly stylish.

3. Bath shower mixer tap ideas 2019

Choosing a tap for your bath completely depends on your own personal preference. Some people like separate pillar taps, whereas others prefer a mixer tap which allows you to combine the flow.

One bath tap that always comes in handy is a bath shower mixer. Complete with a shower handset and hose, it’s ideal for washing hair and rinsing out the bath when cleaning.

Orchard Eden bath shower mixer tap

A new addition to our popular Eden collection, this bath shower mixer tap features a contemporary design, complete with simple rounded handles and spout, plus a smooth cylindrical body.

Perfect for curved bathroom suites, it also comes with an ultra-modern shower handset, hose and wall bracket, providing a neat storage place. A simple diverter switches the flow quickly between taps and handset.

For a coordinated look, you’ll also discover matching a matching basin tap from the same collection.

4. Traditional tap ideas 2019

Many of us like a more classic décor, especially if you live in a period property, which is why we’ve expanded our range of traditional taps. From concept to creation, we’ve carefully selected all our designs, including fabulous Art Deco-inspired taps, to suit your requirements.

The Bath Co. Winchester basin mixer tap with black lever handle

New for 2019, we’ve introduced black handles to our popular Winchester tap range. Traditional in style, they are ideal when creating a more classic and sophisticated look.

What’s more, with a large handle design, they are easy to use, even with restricted hand mobility. They should certainly be a consideration if you’re planning an independent living bathroom for an elderly friend or relative. To complement your basin, matching bath taps are also available.

5. Small tap ideas 2019

Small bathroom spaces such as cloakrooms and ensuites can present their own unique challenges. With a more compact basin or vanity unit, a smaller tap may be more suitable. This is why we also produce a wide range of cloakroom taps, including smaller versions of our bestsellers.

The Bath Co. Dulwich cloakroom basin mixer tap

A brand new addition to our range, the Dulwich cloakroom basin mixer tap is incredibly compact, with a projection of just 142mm. Containing all the elements you’d expect from a traditional tap, including an elegant curved spout and cross head handles, it is a true design classic.
