Jim’s guide to buying tapware

So my guide to buying bathroom tapware is asking yourself two simple questions. The first question is my tapware the start or a supporting playing in my bathroom and who will be practically using the tapware. The first question allows you to work out your plans for the bathroom as you it guides you to a simple tapware or a bold tapware. The other comes down if it’s a rental bathroom a bathroom used by kids or someone with an impairment of any kind. This dictates what you should have in the bathroom but keep yourself checking my blog as at the end of the year I will be doing a detailed guide on buying bathroom tapware.

Final Notes

Brushed copper tapware is one of the future tapware of bathrooms. It is best used for me personally in bold bathrooms such as Tadelakt/Venetian plastered bathrooms as this really raw feeling bathroom tapware goes so well with these organic natural feeling bathrooms. Not easy to pull off and look great but so worth it.

One other note is copper tapware can look very similar or even be the same as bronze tapware as they have very similar colour finishes.
