Types of Bathroom tapware
For ease of use and functionality, basin mixer taps have become a popular choice for bathrooms. They give homeowners the ability to control both temperature and water flow using a single lever handle and helps reduce water wastage. For above counter basins, you may want to consider a high rise basin mixer to ensure it clears above the basin bowl.
Available in a wide range of finishes and colours, shop our online collection of basin taps and mixers, wall-mounted basin mixers, top-mounted taps, wall top assemblies, basin spouts, and more.
With a wide range of styles and designs for bath tapware, your choice will ultimately depend on the type of bath setup you have.
For bath and shower combinations, consider a single shower rail or shower mixer with a diverter that allows you to separate the water to a bath mixer/tap set. We have both wall-mounted and top-mounted taps suitable for each application.
For freestanding baths, offer a little more flexibility in style and design when it comes to choosing a freestanding bath mixer. If your bath is positioned away from the wall, a floor-mounted bath mixer would be ideal. If it’s installed close to a wall, consider a wall-mounted bath mixer set.
For wall-mounted baths, consider any wall basin bath mixer taps and spouts.
For traditional insert baths, wall-mounted and top-mounted mixer sets and bath spouts are a perfect choice, providing there are tap holes available.

Frequently Asked Questions
Can you mix black and chrome tapware?
If you’re wondering if black tapware is a fad, black and matte black fittings and fixtures are very much on-trend and are an excellent choice for creating a modern and contemporary look.
If you are to blend black and chrome, we recommend going with black tapware and chrome finishes for other bathroom accessories, such as towel rails.
Avoid mixing black and chrome together for a more consistent look. We hold a wide range of finishes, including matte black, chrome, brushed gold, brushed nickel, rose gold and more.
Does black tapware scratch?
Manufactured from high-quality materials with an electroplated finish, black tapware is highly durable and resistant to marks, fingerprints and scratches. However, it is still prone to damage if they are not looked after.
How to clean black tapware?
Black and matt black tapware is fairly easy to clean with mild soapy water and dried with a dry cloth. Avoid using harsh chemicals or wax-based cleaners, as this may damage the finish, and leave stains on the outer finish.
Do you have to match the mixer to the tapware?
Tapware generally comes as a set and it is advised to have matching mixers and tapware for a more consistent design and finish. Speak to one of our design experts here at V Bathroom about tapware that complements your space.
