Buying guide for bathroom taps
Step 1: Think of the bathroom as a whole
Before selecting the bathroom taps that are most suitable for a new modern bathroom project, it is essential to pay attention to all the elements that make up the bathroom: from the bathtub, sink and toilet, to all accessories and appliques, and right through to every piece of bathroom furniture.
Indeed, among the many elements that make up the bathroom, the search for harmony and functionality will be crucial to making the bathroom of your dreams come true. When it comes to creating a coherent and harmonious aesthetic, the choice of fittings and screens is particularly important when deciding on the finish of the taps.
Step 2: Aim for energy savings in the bathroom through sustainability
When it comes to water, every drop counts, and that is why selecting a bathroom taps that promote sustainability is a responsibility we should assume.
Controlling energy consumption and water consumption in the bathroom is easier thanks to the WaterForest bathroom taps. The range of taps that includes different models—such as Oxo, Round, Square, Lignage and Forma—and features intelligent saving systems, such as the cold opening system, which avoids the unnecessary use of hot water and reduces the energy consumption of boilers and heaters; or the ECO aerators, which limit the water flow to 1.3 litres/min without affecting comfort.
Furthermore, all Noken taps can limit the flow rate and reduce consumption in the bathroom, which means that we can cut water consumption by up to 89% compared to conventional taps.
Step 3: Technology adapted to every need
Depending on the layout and dimensions of the bathroom, it is necessary to take into account the type of installation. The Noken SmartBox system is an aesthetic and versatile solution that hides the system behind the wall and allows greater freedom in the placement of bathroom taps and considerable space savings, either in countertop, floor standing or wall mounted basins.
This system allows taps to be installed both vertically and horizontally, integrating the mixer system into a small box within the partition and isolating the noise generated by the passage of water in the pipes. The result is quieter and more minimalist bathroom taps.
Another element to take into account when choosing the taps that best suit every need is choosing between thermostatic taps or mixer taps. This choice comes down to user preference, as well as a consideration of comfort and practicality.

Another important factor is water saving: selecting a sustainable tap system will allow savings in resources, as well as financial savings.

You can choose between wall-mounted or built-in taps, with the water outlet coming out from the wall, ceiling-mounted taps, or shelf-mounted taps, which are installed on the unit housing the washbasin itself. There are also floor-mounted taps, a minimalist option in which the pipes are concealed under the floor.
As for the type of spout, you can usually find high spout taps, low spout taps, foldable taps or extractable taps.
How do I know if a tap is good quality?
The material of the taps, as well as that of the interior cartridges, is essential to determining if taps are good quality. The finish, technology and guarantees offered by the manufacturer are also important.
Which is better, a mixer or thermostatic tap?
Choosing the type of taps is a matter of taste and comfort. While mixer taps are more common, thermostatic taps are an increasingly popular option due to the temperature stability they offer, especially in showers.
