Just a little tip to keeping you warm in your bathroom when thinking of which Heated towel rail to choose think taller, when there is little space to fit your bathroom heating in then choose the tallest towel rail as you can easily compromise on the height but not the width of area, buy selecting a tall rail you are much more likely to get the correct heating output to satisfy the bathroom or shower room with the desired temperature you require.

This Towel rail from Tapstore.com measures only 300mm wide but stands up 1800mm leaving more space for the towels and allows the heat to radiate at the same time.

Storm Bathroom Taps – From Roper Rhodes

Roper Rhodes Storm bathroom taps are pound for pound the best value for money bathroom taps on the market today, I have been looking at the quality of many bathroom taps and testing the functionality as well as considering the price tag these are the reasons why my vote goes to the Storm Bathroom tap range.

The chroming quality is very good something to look out for in cheaper ranges, the flow rate on the low pressure items is better than most other low pressure models of single lever mixer taps, for a mass produced Chinese import product the consistency of brass casting is very good, and the valve technology is exceptional the ceramic disc cartridge mixing valve for the mono-bloc basin mixer has a flow limiter built in restricting the volume of water that can be used (especially required for higher pressure systems) the temperature on the hot side can also be restricted making hotter stored water safer to use.

Products in the Storm bathroom tap range: *Note the basin mixers come both with and without pop up wastes.

  • Storm mini basin mixers.
  • Storm tall basin mixers.
  • Storm Basin taps.
  • Storm mono bloc bidet mixer.
  • Storm bath filler.

  • The One – Crosswater Bathroom Taps

    The One from Crosswater is a new concept in basin mixers, the idea is when the body of the tap is pulled towards you the water flow is turned on and when swung to the left its hot and to the right its cold.

    A design innovation in brassware from Crosswater and the One monobloc basin mixer certainly is that.

    You will need a high pressure water system 1 bar minimum to get the best performance from the One bathroom taps, in the range is a tall basin mixer, a 3 hole basin set, 2 wall mount basin mixers one with a shelf, bidet mixer, a wall mounted bath shower mixer, there are also manual valves for showering and bath filling operations.
