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.
