Best Taps For Bathrooms And Kitchens

Have your bathroom or kitchen renovations come to the pointy end and now it’s time to choose your taps and fixtures? How exciting! Or maybe you just want to spruce up your rooms with some new additions. With SO many different varieties of taps on the market, it can be overwhelming to know which option is best for you.

There are a few things to consider when choosing the best taps:


What do you really want this tap to do? Some taps in your home will be used more than others and may need to be a different size to suit their purpose.


When choosing the best tap option for your bathroom or kitchen you want to consider the style of your home and the room. Sure, the humble tap is one of the most used items of our home’s plumbing system but it’s got to look good too! Choose a tap that will blend into your home’s style and look like it belongs there.


Some taps require more maintenance and cleaning than others. Think about the shiny chrome variety; they will require more attention and cleaning than their matte brothers.


We touch taps – a lot. So a great tap will need to feel good in your hands!

Water efficiency – WELS rating

All taps are labelled with a WELS star rating. This is the Water Efficiency Labelling and Standards rating that tells you how water-efficient a tap is. It ranges from one to six stars – the most stars the more water-efficient the product.

When you consider all these conditions, it’s then time to choose the types of tap that is best suitable for the room.

There are a few kinds of taps available:

  • Floor mounted taps
  • Wall mounted taps
  • Pillar taps
  • Mixer taps
  • Bath filler taps
  • Bath and shower mixer

Best to inspect your local homeware store to test out the look, feel, and functionality of all the tap options before you buy. No matter what tap type you choose, it’s best to have it fitted by a licensed, master plumber. So call Proximity Plumbing today on 0420 102 394 for a free quote.
