Bristan Chill Showers.

There are four opinions for the shower, the first option pictured to the left is a thermostatic shower valve that can be mounted either on the surface or recessed into the wall, it comes complete with a riser rail kit and a really neat stylish single function shower handset.

Chill-three-way-shower-valveIn the recessed only options which are also thermostatic you have the choice of a dual function with a flow control and a temperature control handle ideal for either a shower kit or a fixed position shower head, then there is a shower valve with diverter so two items can be controlled and my favorite the three way valve (pictured right) which is the same as the diverter option with the added bonus of a stop cock on/off control fitted below the thermostat that can be used simultaneously with either of the top outlets or individually on its own. 

There is also a matching range of Chill bathroom accessories, Best Buy From Tapstore.com

Mini Basin Mixers have become all the rage now with manufacturers they are launching more models all the time, I have been looking into this phenomenon and it is based around the common use of smaller cloakroom basins being squeezed into WC’s to create a cloakroom out of a toilet.

I remember when we used to use short reach basin taps for cloakroom basins, but they were very traditional in style now with the modern clean minimalist style being the main stay of the bathroom market smaller monobloc basin mixers are the solution, so I thought I should introduce a few to you.

Firstly the Logic mini monobloc basin mixer from Crosswater (pictured above right) RRP £169.00 with its cubist design is minimal and simple.

Next is the Java mini basin mixer from Bristan (Pictured left). Delicately arched, the understated design this Java basin tap borrows from nature, imitating the gentle flow of water flowing leisurely downstream RRP £116.00.
