    Lovely showroom in Uphall and plenty of product on display. Ended up getting bifolding doors last year so my review is long overdue. Recently had a remedial issue and the customer care I received was great. I must thank Callum for arranging for replacement parts and for a fitter to attend. Thank you ekco.

    Had a great experience with ekco from start to finish. The staff were very helpful and communicated well throughout our project. The tradesmen were efficient and showed up on time. I was very impressed by their standard of workmanship and how they would tidy up after themselves. Everything was completed in a timely manner and I’m delighted with my new bathroom.

      Bathroom Taps Buyers’ Guide

      So you’re looking for bathroom taps but aren’t sure which is the best option for you. Bathroom designers may advise you based on style to ensure you get the perfect finish – but you want durability and quality too. That’s why German bathroom specialist Ekco, which delivers quality bathrooms across Scotland, including in both Edinburgh and Glasgow, has put together a bathroom taps buyers’ guide.

      What to consider when buying bathroom taps

      If you’re looking for bathroom taps then your first consideration should be water pressure. Most taps will be suitable for use with standard water pressure – however, shower mixer taps will usually require a higher pressure to perform. You can contact your local Water Board for advice.

      Design of your bathroom taps as there are many to choose from including:

      • Pillar basin/bath taps: These are traditional taps – with one for hot water and one for cold.
      • Mixer taps: This is a single body tap that mixes both hot and cold water with two handles located on either side to control the water flow.
      • Dual flow taps: These will provide a single stream of water, but unlike mixer taps they prevent unequal pressure by keeping the hot and cold water separate within the body of the tap itself.
      • Monobloc taps: A single lever is used to control the hot and cold water flow through monobloc taps so there is no need for separate handles.
      • Shower mixer: This will include a diverter system that directs the water supply to the shower head which is incorporated into the tap.

      In addition to deciding on the style of bathroom tap you want, you should also consider the finish that will match your bathroom design. Options include: brass taps, shiny chrome and brushed matt and satin finishes.

      Also consider how you want the taps to be fitted. The basic options are to mount taps on the basin/bath; or to mount the tap behind the fixtures, which can have advantages such as creating a clean look to the fixture’s surface.
