With a varying selection of options to shop from, Cobra helps to clear up any confusion when choosing between deck mounted or wall mounted taps.

If your vision is to transform your home into a place of unmatched beauty that is also capable of promoting a feeling of invigoration first thing in the morning, providing an energy boost in the afternoon, or allowing you a tranquil night-time wind down, Cobra is here for you.

Helping you to understand the different types of tap and mixer options available will not only help you to shop but to feel more confident in having productive conversations with your architect, plumber or salesperson. Read on to discover the differences between taps that are deck mounted versus wall mounted, and the features and benefits of both.

 

Deck Mounted Taps

Alternatively referred to as a pillar type tap, deck mounted taps are fitted directly to the bathroom vanity, countertop, or even the basin or bathtub itself. And while there is an abundance of ranges, designs and functionality (screw down and single lever mixer taps included) don’t allow this variety to confuse you. When talking to your architect, plumbing professional or even a salesperson, you can be certain that when reference is made to a pillar type tap or deck mounted fitting, this includes all taps (both bathroom of kitchen tap fittings) that are secured in a vertical position, onto a flat surface, basin or bath, provided these have been equipped with a tap hole.

 

Wall Mounted Taps

Wall mounted taps are a more recent development (compared to deck mounted alternatives) and are fitted into spaces that can often be restricted by space. These tap fittings can also create a dramatic aesthetic appeal and although available in various contemporary designs, they can be well-placed to suit classic bathroom themes just as well as more modern ones. While wall mounted taps free up space on smaller bathroom countertops, they also create an illusion of added space by being lifted off the vanity deck while pairing well with minimalistic vanity designs, underslung basins or free-standing bathtubs.

 

Fulfilling a functional purpose, both deck mounted, and wall mounted taps are available in a variety of contemporary and classic designs, enabling you to apply your desired feel or theme to any bathroom or kitchen space. Many deck mounted, screw down taps can quite easily be swapped out and updated with more recent pillar type tap designs without having to replace existing plumbing installations.

Where some encounters are fleeting, made up of rushed-running-late-mornings after an overslept snooze button, other moments bring with them a still serenity found behind a closed bathroom door at the end of a long day. While Cobra taps and mixers have been engineered to meet the everyday needs of what one expects from an industry market leader, we’re here for that lasting impression our products leave long after you’ve finished your bathroom or kitchen activity.
