The right bathroom tap can make a renovation look like it cost a million while the wrong one can make it look like no renovation was even done. It's not just a matter of design, or a matter of cost. How a person will react really comes down to just a matter of taste. There are some basic guidelines that you can follow to make your bathroom feel more luxurious without costing more.
1. Shop a company's online store. Many companies will not only offer a larger variety of bathroom taps through their internet stores. They will often charge far less than on-sight stores because of the lower overhead involved.
2. Look at discount sites (like overstock.com) for a great value. These companies buy out merchandise for a huge discount and then pass the savings on to their customers.
3. Buy during the summer holidays. Many stores will offer large discounts during these times. Take advantage of the large price breaks.
4. Look for clearance items. Which ever route you choose to shop, all companies will eventually quit running a line of bathroom taps. As soon as the red clearance sign goes goes up on the item, take the plunge.
There are also some do not to follow to keep your bathroom looking high end. Do not mix and match bathroom taps. The bathtub and the sinks should all have the same feel to them. A bright brass will look out of place if the rest of the bathroom taps are nickel. All the savings in the world will not be able to make up for this faux pas.
A bathroom tap may seem like an insignificant part of the décor, but it can make the room a sensation or a flop. A little extra money (or time) invested in picking the right tap will have a lasting result in the tone of the room.
