Basin mixer taps provide the perfect option for bathroom mixer taps as they are both functional and stylish. basin mixer taps are typically designed to mix hot and cold water, enabling easy control of the hot water temperature with a single outlet. This ensures the water stays at a consistent, comfortable temperature for both safety and comfort. With basin mixer taps, you can easily mix both hot and cold water without having to open up multiple faucets.

The basin mixer tap is usually mounted to a wall, but it can also be mounted to a counter top, in which case the spout must be mounted to ensure stability. The basin mixer has two arms with one arm positioned in the middle of the tap, whilst the other arm is fixed to the wall, and the basin mixer is fitted to this arm with the spout positioned underneath it. In some models, the basin mixer arm pivot is on a casters mechanism. This is particularly common amongst undermount basin mixer taps, as the casters enable the arm to move outwards, thus removing any weight on the spout, which in turn lowers the centre of gravity, or MCL, and hence the amount of strain exerted on the mixer.

A popular style of basin mixer tap is the single spout style. These models are generally located near the sink, as they are not particularly practical if you need to provide a constant supply of cold water. Single spouts are normally made from either copper or brass, and are available in a wide range of colours. However, there are also models available which are made from stainless steel, and these tend to be less colourful than the copper ones. If your taps are to be used for drinking and cooking purposes, then the colour will be irrelevant, however if they are to be placed on a decorative surface, you may want to consider choosing a metallic coloured model.
