Bathtub taps - details make the differenceBasically, bathrooms are always built similar: toilet, sink, shower and / or bath with the appropriate fittings have their place in any bathroom.
But here lies the devil buried in the details and it's the little things that make the big difference.
Both stylistically, as well as in terms of the required comfort.
That's why you should allow yourself as much time to choose the right bath tub fitting as you would for the bathroom itself. That's the only way the bathroom develops a uniform concept that not only convinces visually but also conveys a touch of luxury to the user.
Single-lever mixer has prevailed
A pioneer in the field of bathtub faucets for many years was the double-faucet mixer, where you could regulate the temperature to the right and left of the faucet. Although this bathroom faucet still exists, today it is more of a nostalgic bathroom.
In the meantime, the single-lever mixer with temperature and pressure regulation by means of a lever has established itself. It is now in the well-tried principle in different manifestations on the market. While the horizontal single lever mixer batteries are the absolute pioneers, they have received high quality competition in the vertical variant.
There are other differentiations besides the lever position. Classic single-lever mixer tapes are attached to the wall with lever and spout. Modern versions place only the lever, either surface or flush, on the wall, while the
Faucet itself is attached to the edge of the bathtub. This way many wishes and visual ideas can be realized.
Temperature and water flow regulation
As practical as a single-lever mixer may be, some patience is required before finding the right water temperature. And this problem is complemented by the idea of saving energy, because in a bath you use considerably more water than in a shower and it is difficult to get an overview of the actual amount of water. This is prevented by special thermostats.
On the one hand, they are now available with a detailed temperature regulation,
so that the water is released in a constant, previously defined number of degrees. On the other hand, there are special bathtub faucets that include a water quantity indicator and thus fight the water waste fight. These small luxury items are certainly not a must in the bathroom, but make everyday life a lot easier and offer unparalleled comfort.
With special coatings against limescale and dirt
Bathtub taps are available in most bathrooms in shiny chrome. And here comes the polishing problem. The constant humidity and the natural lime content in the water cause the bathroom faucet to lose its shine and have unsightly lime spots. As often as you clean it, directly at the next bath, these spots occur again. Not to mention corrosion that can not be ruled out in bathtub faucets.
Quality pays off here. Because there are now high-quality bathtub fittings with special anti-limescale coatings. The water will roll off without leaving any limescale behind. Rust hardly forms, while even the annoying tarnishing is prevented.
In the course of making work easier when cleaning the bathroom such bathtubs with special coating can be worth considering.
Do not forget your shower
If you are looking for a suitable bathtub faucet, you think spontaneously of the mixer tap and faucet. A crucial element is always neglected and sometimes even forgotten: the shower head.
Even if you do not want to shower in the bathtub, a shower is still required. But why? When bathing the washed-off skin flakes are delivered to the bath water and one bathes, so to speak. After you leave the tub, you always take with you a good dose of dead skin cells. In addition, soap residues remain on the skin, which damage the healthy skin flora and occasionally cause itching. Therefore, following the
Bath the body are always briefly showered. And thus, the need for a shower head is given to the bath tub fitting.
