It’s not hard to see why waterfall taps are so popular. Minimal and chic, they make a great focal point in modern and ornate bathrooms alike. In this buyer’s guide we’ll talk you through what a waterfall tap is and the beautiful range at Bathstore, so you can make the best decision possible for your space.


What is a waterfall tap?

A waterfall mixer tap is a contemporary twist on your traditional mixer tap. Usually equipped with a simple lever, when pulled upwards water cascades out from a singular open spout creating an artistic water feature effect.


What will it add to my bathroom?

With a waterfall tap, it’s all about the aesthetic. They create a serene waterfall effect that helps to make your space feel more zen – especially when added to a bath. They also look lovely and minimal compared to more traditional taps.

A waterfall mixer tap, like any mixer tap, can also help you get the perfect water temperature . This is especially handy when running a bath as you don’t have to mess around with hot and cold to get the water just right.


Which one should I choose?

There are a few different styles to choose from when you’re thinking about investing in a waterfall mixer tap. And while all focussed around the same artistic and luxurious design, they’re tweaked for different settings and fixtures. Here’s our range at Bathstore to give you an idea of the options you have at your disposal:

Freestanding mixer tap

This freestanding waterfall mixer tap is the height of luxury – literally. Turn it on to unleash a towering waterfall over your bath, creating a serene, spa-like atmosphere before you’ve even poured the bubble bath. This unique design in shining chrome creates a real statement in your bathroom while easily matching with other fixtures and fittings. And if you love this design, there’s also a matching basin tap to really complete the look.

Mini mixer tap

Smaller bathroom? No problem. Our mini waterfall mixer tap is perfect for smaller sinks while still giving you the magic of a cascading waterfall. It’s specifically designed to still feel effortlessly stylish, just on a smaller scale.

Deck mounted mixer tap

If you’re a sucker for the traditional styling of hot and cold taps, but love the waterfall tap design, this one’s for you. A standard deck mounted style with the beautiful water feature front and centre.

Standard mixer tap

Don’t worry, we’ve not forgotten about the standard waterfall mixer tap. The original design with a lever mechanism and single spout of cascading water. The great thing about this one is you can have exactly the same tap over the bath and the sink – great in a more minimal bathroom design.
