Choosing taps for a freestanding bath

A freestanding bath can be a symbol of luxury and a great way to elevate your bathroom design with a spa like feel. But what are the important considerations when choosing taps for a freestanding bath? And how can you achieve the right results?

What are the important considerations when choosing taps for a freestanding bath?

There are a number of important considerations to take into account when choosing the taps for your freestanding bath. These considerations include:

  • Style and design: It;s important to consider the style and design of the taps for your freestanding bath. As such, you should opt for taps that complement the overall design theme of your bathroom, whether this is traditional or contemporary. Some taps will be more effective for different bathroom styles, and its important to make the right choice for your space for a cohesive design.
  • Type of tap: You will also need to consider the type of tap for your freestanding bath. There are different types of taps available, including deck-mounted, floor-mounted, and wall-mounted options. For a freestanding bath, floor-mounted taps are the most common choice, as they provide a striking visual effect and allow easy access to the water without interfering with the bath’s design.
  • Height and reach: Practical considerations will also need to be taken into account. You will need to consider the height and reach of the taps to ensure they are suitable for the size and shape of the freestanding bath. Taps with a sufficient height and reach will prevent splashing and provide comfortable access to the water.
  • Finish and material: Taps are available in various finishes and materials, such as chrome, brass, nickel, or matte black. As such, you should be sure to select a finish that coordinates with other fixtures and fittings in your bathroom, and complements the overall color scheme and style.
