MAKE YOUR BATHROOM FITTINGS WORK FOR YOU
1. Your bathroom habits should inform the choice of washbasins and faucets you buy. For instance, compact sinks and decorative taps are more suited to powder rooms, where users simply wash their hands. In contrast, bathrooms – where you are likely to wash your face and even accessories – will require deeper basins and a wellsized tap that will not obstruct your movements.
2. To avoid splashing water all over the bathroom console, ensure the distance between tap and sink follows these standards: At least 85cm from floor to top of basin, and 30cm from the top of the basin to the mirror’s edge.
3. Try to buy the washbasin and faucet from the same store or brand, as it reduces the chances of an awkward combination. At the same time, the experts at the store will advise on the right configuration, based on your habits, bathroom size and layout.
4. Don’t just look for the cheapest faucet you can find. Quality is key. Also consider useful features like water-saving and temperatureprecision functions, and quality finishes that are easy to clean and will not collect hard water stains. These features will save you time and money in the long run.
