Top trends for this year
Some of the top trends this year focus on being more environmentally conscious and saving water plus energy.
When it comes to taps and tapware we are seeing a lot of black, gold, brass, or polished looks.
Ornate designs and waterfall faucets make this year’s taps unique and stylish.
For toilets, there is a massive trend towards waterless or dual buttons, which can provide a low water option.
High tech toilets are also making a splash.
Among the high tech toilets are seat warmers, bidets, automatic lid openers, deodorizers, and even wireless music players.
Picking the right one for your needs
When looking for a new toilet or tap, think about the needs and wants you or your family may have.
Do you want to be eco-friendly?
Do you need special functions to help you better use them?
Some toilets can be hung on the wall — giving you the ability to raise or lower the height that a person would need to sit to use them.
Taps may have a touch-free function, allowing you to simply wave a hand near them to turn them on.
Other things to consider are whether you want a standard mixer or another type of valve to adjust temperature.
Finding a great plumber
When you are ready for installation, do your research to find the best plumber.
Ask family, friends, and neighbours who they can suggest.
Look at online reviews and customer testimonials.
If they have before and after pictures, take a look at them to determine the quality of their work.
Discuss the type of tap or toilet that you currently have, what you are switching to or looking for, and what they can do for you.
Ask for an estimate on time to complete the installation and costs to do so.
Ensure they have the proper experience, credentials, and a valid licence.
