Newest launch for Crosswater is the Elite bathroom taps, again small as a range but as with the Crosswater way of thinking it is very individual and is designed with the precision you have come to expect from Crosswater.
The Elite side lever mono bloc basin mixer feels like it has been moulded into its shape and must be one of the most practical designs I have seen for years cleaning almost with one sweep of a cloth there is no fuss about the shape at all. With the other items in the range of bathroom taps and mixers you get the same clean edge of design although as with some of the latest releases coming out of KBB Birmingham this year there are only five items to choose from adding to the basin mixer is the tall monobloc basin mixer, the monobloc bath filler a monobloc bath shower mixer with pull out hose and handset and a single bath spout which is deck mounted.
The basin mixer is available from Tapstore.com for a special offer of just £182.99 so if you want to see this and the rest of the range click here.
Crosswater have launched Status Bathroom Taps an unusual slant with this range it has some harsh angles with some subtle curves in between built and designed with a very well engineered feel as with all Crosswater’s products offering a certain quality and durability.
The choices with in the Status Range stating with the Status Monobloc basin mixer that comes with no pop-up waste so be sure to select a click clack waste as an addition, also you have a mini basin mixer for the cloakroom or smaller basins, there is a tall monobloc basin mixer for freestanding bowls or for a three hole basin you have the 3 hole basin set with a very imposing spout, just to finish off the basin mixer range there is a wall mounted 2 hole basin mixer (as shown below) which is my personal favorite.
To allow for baths you have a choice of a bath shower mixer or bath filler with a 3 hole bath filler or a 5 hole bath shower mixer set, they have a set of deck mounted side bodies which you can match up with the Status bath spout for separate parts.
For showering the range is quite limited there is just a manual shower valve or manual shower valve with diverter available which tend to be used more as bath fillersnow a days the diverter model could also be used to fill up a bath and also divert to a shower handset.
