Basin taps are a crucial part of any bathroom, but not only are they a practical (and necessary) bathroom accessory, they can also add a huge amount style-wise too! We say this as, despite the size, people still tend to ‘wing it’ when it comes to tap shopping. However, if you’ve never experienced the true satisfaction of having your bathroom looking all matchy-matchy, you’re in for a real treat and we’d recommend holding out for that perfect model that suits your bathroom perfectly.
With thousands of tap designs on the market, we wouldn’t blame you if you’re struggling to find that perfect bathroom tap, which is why we’ve compiled a list of our top 10 favourites to get you feeling inspired.
Want to hear the best news? Bathroom taps don’t have to cost a fortune - and we’re firm believers that everyone should be able to have a quality tap no matter what their budget. That’s why all the taps on this list are under £200. You can thank us later!
