Space-saving, stylish and super easy to use, the monobloc tap is now a must-have for bathroom spaces, having been commonplace in style-conscious kitchens for some time now.
With modern bathrooms looking to make the most of the room at their disposal without compromising on aesthetics, mono taps have become an essential means of incorporating both practicality and premium styling into one viable package.
What Are Monobloc Taps?
A monobloc tap is a mixer tap that is comprised of one unit featuring one or two tap handles and a spout. Monoblocs are suitable for deck mounting on both stone basins and stone baths that feature a single opening for installation.
How Do Monobloc Taps Differ From Traditional Styles?
Mono taps are available in a wide variety of styles, making them an adaptable option that can seamlessly fit into your interior whatever your decor style.
Such is the simplicity yet effectiveness of their construction, they’re able to span a range of designs, from traditional swan neck styles right through to high-quality boiling and filtration taps.
Where traditional taps may obstruct your options and stunt your styling, the versatility of mono taps means that you’re opening up a world of designs to explore that give you all the pros of traditional styling as well as the option for contemporary looks and reliable performance.
How Does a Monobloc Tap Work?
Though simple and unfussy in appearance, monobloc taps feature ingenious design technology that makes the tap tick beneath the fitting. Rather than two separate feeds, mono taps allow both the hot and cold water feed to enter the base or block of the tap.
This is achieved through 10mm feed pipes which screw into the bottom of the tap before being machined out transitioning to 15mm copper tails which connect the separate 15mm feeds.
What Bathroom Designs Do Monobloc Taps Compliment?
As we touched upon earlier in the article, mono taps are an extremely adaptable style of bathroom tap, as well as being right at home in your kitchen too.
If your bathroom is traditional in appearance, the likes of a brushed stainless steel or chrome finish are the perfect aesthetic, for those looking for something a little more standout and contemporary, our matte back taps or rose gold collections are a must. If your space requires an eye-catching finish that spans a mix of classic and modern styling, brushed gold is as versatile as it is beautiful in design.
