Firstly, you need to decide what look you’re planning to go for. Taps might seem like a small detail, but if you choose wisely, they can really make an impact.
 
If you want a look that shouts luxury, you can avoid taps altogether and go for a floor-mounted bath filler. Or if you’d prefer something simple that offers great value for money, the Capri range is a popular choice. If budget is less of an issue, think about the Monobloc Kitchen Sink Mixer Tap. 

You may wish to eschew modern gadgetry in favour of a vintage look. In which case, take a look at Bristan colonial taps - they'll look stylish in any kitchen or bathroom, particularly with a butler’s sink. But you may find you miss the convenience of a Bristan mixer tap
 
There’s more to think about than just looks, too. Keep an eye out for Bristan’s ecosmart products, which are more environmentally friendly. And if you’re keen to save on bills, you can also buy flow limiters that save water.

The safest way to clean your Bristan taps is with a clean, damp cloth. Microfibre cloths are especially good as they have a bigger surface area and so pick up more dirt.
 
They work well on shiny surfaces using just water – there’s no need to use cleaning products, so again these will save you money in the long term. In fact, some manufacturers recommend you avoid using bathroom cleaning products altogether, as they may damage the tap’s surface. You can remove any stains with washing-up liquid.
