Monobloc Basin Mixer Taps
Monobloc Basin Mixer Taps are amongst the most common basin mixers available for modern bathrooms. A monobloc denotes the base of the tap and whether it’s moulded from a single piece of brass during the manufacturing process. The “mixer” means that hot and cold water flows from a single spout which is controlled by a lever. Basins can determine the type of basin tap you choose as one-hole basins will accommodate a monobloc basin mixer tap whereas with two-hole basins will not. Monobloc basin mixer taps are a popular choice due to their timeless appeal and minimalistic style. These styles of taps will also offer greater water efficiency and temperature control due to the single lever function.
Wall Mounted Basin Taps

Wall mounted basin taps offer exceptional functionality and practicality, providing your bathroom with a contemporary look and feel. These taps are perfect for combining with a sit-on bowl and countertop basins to create a sleek appearance. Important considerations such as spout projection are good to understand as the position on your basin will determine whether the choice of wall mounted tap you’ve chosen is ideal for the basin you’ve selected.
