The Benefits of Wall Mounted Taps

What is a wall-mounted tap?

When we talk about mounting, we are referring to the type of surface a tap is fixed. Some taps will be fixed to the basin or worktop (these are deck mounted taps) while others will be fixed to the wall just above the basin – these are known as wall-mounted taps.

Why choose wall-mounted taps?

You’ll find a wide range of wall-mounted taps from push-activated options to those that are operated by a non-touch sensor. For the most part, wall mounted taps offer a freer, more expansive countertop with a clean, modern aesthetic. You’ll notice that many wash troughs are designed for wall mounted taps too, with no space for mounting them directly on the unit. 

 

Things to bear in mind

Wall-mounted taps require the water feed to also come from the wall. This means water pipes need to be chased into the wall to keep them concealed, or a duct system will need to be installed to create an integrated plumbing system. Both of which are routine jobs in the installation process. 

Hidden benefits

Wall-mounted taps allow you to have much more control over their placement, meaning you can give users more space beneath the tap to wash their hands. It can also deliver a beautiful cascading waterfall-like effect, which works well in the spa and boutique hotel space.
