The traditional Victorian style is a timeless and classic design that interior designers and homeowners have favoured for its elegant and sophisticated look. Regarding bathroom design, the freestanding pillar, wall or bath-mounted bathroom taps and bath filler are the perfect way to add a touch of elegance to your interior.

Bilden Home & Hardware Market have made available a variety of styles in chrome, nickel, gold, or copper. These bathroom taps and bath fillers can be polished or brushed to provide an antique Victorian bath tap feel. These finishes not only enhance the beauty of the fixtures but also offer a durable and long-lasting finish that is resistant to tarnishing and corrosion.

One of the key features of the traditional Victorian-style bathroom taps is the option of a crosshead or lever handset that provides dual use to find the perfect temperature and pressure. The crosshead handset is the classic Victorian style that features a pair of crossed handles with hot and cold water labelled on each. In contrast, the lever handset features a single lever that adjusts the water temperature and pressure. These handsets are functional and stylish, adding more sophistication to the bathroom design.

In addition to the handset options, traditional Victorian-style taps and bath fillers also come with domed or exposed collars. The domed collar is the classic Victorian design, featuring a round, dome-shaped cover that conceals the base of the tap. Conversely, the exposed collar is a more modern design that exposes the base of the faucet for a sleeker and more contemporary look.
