Take a Dip
The thought of soaking the afternoon away in a deep bathtub has us weak at the knees.
So when you are choosing your tapware to suit your gorgeous new tub, it not only has to be compatible and functional, it needs to be beautiful as well.
If you have chosen a freestanding bathtub, you’ll be aware of a relatively new trend in bath fillers – the floor mounted spout.
Sounds complicated, but if you plan for this early on in your build or renovation, it’s just another water outlet.
If you are renovating, just beware of the added cost of having plumbing moved to accommodate your new floor mounted spout.
However, if it’s a new build, ensure you talk to your plumber and builder early on in the planning stage, to make sure the plumbing is accounted for.

Luxury @ home
As we mentioned earlier, the floor mounted bath spout is quite a new concept in bathroom design.
So it has the ability to add quite a luxurious feel to a bathroom.
You can take advantage of this style even if your current bathtub is not freestanding.
With a some careful planning, time and money in the budget, it can be added to your existing bathroom.
It’s just a matter of having your plumbing adjusted to accommodate the new floor mounted bath filler spout.
Design Tip – Existing taps don’t need to be moved! Keeping the existing taps in a separate position is very on-trend. They don’t need to be located right beside the bath filler spout.
Modern Vs Traditional
While the floor mounted bath filler spout is a more modern take on tapware and bath fillers, traditional concepts are still widely used.
There is a reason why traditional methods are typically followed – because they work!
So while you may be renovating or building a completely new home, your bathroom design and style should still suit your personal taste.
If you love an updated version of traditional, there are so many new designs and styles that you can get excited about.
Take the traditional wall mounted bath spout and taps…while the concept is tradition, the style of tapware available now is truly up-to-the-minute.
Not just the style and colours, but technology and modern manufacturing methods, make current tapware even more durable and sustainable.

Best of Both Worlds
Okay, so mixing modern with traditional can sometimes be risky…but we’re here to help!
Maybe you’ve decided to go with a freestanding modern bathtub, but traditional placement of your tapware.
Combining the best of both worlds is a skill, but the results will be worthwhile.
From the orientation of the bathtub, to the style of bath filler you choose, every single element of your bathroom design needs to work in harmony.
Start by finding your hero piece. Work all the other elements around that piece, you are on the right track. Maybe it’s a gorgeous floor tile, a rain shower head, or an indulgent bathtub – whatever it may be, consider how all your choices will feel in the space.
Design Tip – Create balance by not having too many pieces of one style. A carefully considered mix of vintage or traditional, along with modern elements will help to make sure your design and style shines through!
