How to Choose A Wall Mixer
Wall mixers are much easier to select than other tapware because they’re secondary to a spout or shower head. Therefore, selecting a wall mixer is made easy by matching it to the basin spout, bath spout or shower head that it will accompany.
If, however, you don’t have existing tapware to match, or you’re replacing all your tapware, you’ll want to consider the application, finish and style to determine which best suits your needs and design style.
Wall Mixer Application
The first step is to determine whether you need a standard wall mixer, wall mixer with diverter, or ¼ turn wall assembly. If you need a mixer to divert water from a bath spout to a shower head, you will need a wall mixer with a diverter. However, if the mixer is for a bath or a basin, you can choose either a wall mixer or a wall assembly.
Wall mixers have slowly risen in popularity and are now the preferred choice over a ¼ wall assembly due to their ease of use and simplistic style. With the move of a single lever, water temperature and pressure is adjusted, providing better water control than turn assemblies.
However, if you replace existing turn assemblies, a wall mixer will require a plumbing upgrade to support it and vice versa.
Consider ease of use, installation, and the design style when choosing between a wall mixer or a wall assembly.
Wall Mixer Finish
Once you choose between a wall mixer, wall mixer with diverter, or a ¼ turn wall assembly, you can then turn your attention to the design, starting with the finish.
As mentioned, the best way to choose a wall mixer is to match it with existing tapware. So, if your basin spout, bath spout or shower head is matte black, choose a matte black wall mixer to match. Our range features wall mixers and assemblies in the hottest finishes, including chrome, brushed gold, brushed nickel and gun metal grey to ensure you can complete your bathroom design with the tapware finish of your preference.
There is no right or wrong tapware finish; it comes down to what looks best with your bathroom colour scheme. However, keep in mind that some finishes will offer better longevity than others.
Wall Mixer Styles
Like all tapware, wall mixers and assemblies are available in a range of styles and ranges. Square and round tapware are two leading style choices. However, new luxury tapware ranges like the Sky, Bianca, and Opal ranges are more popular with Modern and Contemporary bathroom designs.
