The tap or faucet is an essential element of the bathroom, but with a thousand different designs and prices how can you choose the right one for your bathroom? We will now point out some important details for you: considerations that are often overlooked when choosing this essential item for the bathroom.
1.Know your water pressure
In order to obtain a good strong flow of water from your taps it is essential for the water pressure to be sufficient. Check this factor before choosing any particular tap, or have it measured by your plumber. In fact mixers and wall-mounted taps require a good deal more water pressure than two separate taps mounted directly on the washbasin
2.Measure the hole in the washbasin or washstand
It may seem a rather obvious suggestion but before choosing a mixer it is always a good idea to carefully measure the size of the hole (for housing the water-pipe and tap) in your washbasin or washstand and to measure both holes (for hot and cold taps) before choosing the appropriate faucets.
3. Choose the right style for you
What came first… the chicken or the egg? There is no correct answer to this question, and it amounts to much the same thing as asking: Should I choose the type of faucet according to the style of the bathroom or the style of the bathroom according to the type of faucet that I want? The important thing is to either choose something that is in tune with the other fittings in the bathroom or that represents a total break or contrast with them. In such cases the attempt to find a compromise solution usually does not work.
4. Find out what the tap is made of
As we have already pointed out the taps of Palazzani are made of top quality materials: brass and chrome with a thickness of at least 20 microns are our greatest pride.
5. Decide the finish
The finish of your tap is of prime importance, and it may consist of colored lacquer or chrome, either polished to a brilliant shine or satin brushed. Make sure that chrome plating is sufficiently thick and that the highest quality materials have been used. When you clean your taps you should never use aggressive detergents that can ruin the chrome finish.
Now that you have a few precise technical indications to guide you in choosing your tap, you can give free rein to your imagination. In our catalogue you will certainly find the faucet or tap of your dreams, in a style that perfectly matches that of your ideal bathroom.
