A Guide to Choosing Between Bridge and Monobloc Mixer Taps
As an integral part of any working kitchen it is important to choose taps suited to the overall aesthetic or they can look out of place. Bridge or monobloc mixer taps are just two styles. Here, we offer some guidance to help make your decision a little easier.
Our kitchen mixer taps are available in a range of designs from elegant and traditional to sleek and contemporary. Constructed from the finest materials including a rust-proof brass core and polished chrome, these taps will look beautiful in any kitchen alongside either ceramic or stainless-steel sinks. There are two types of mixer taps – bridge taps and monobloc taps – we discuss contemporary and traditional designs for each type below.
Bridge Mixer Taps
Bridge mixer taps feature separate hot and cold water inlets which are connected by a central bridge. The hot and cold water mix here before leaving a single spout. Taps with a bridge design are not suitable for installing directly onto a sink because two tap holes will be required. Instead, they should be fitted into the worktop.
Monobloc Mixer Taps
Monobloc mixer taps are a single unit featuring one or two handles. The hot and cold water can be adjusted and is mixed in the tap before leaving through a single spout. They are suitable for deck mounting, i.e. installed directly onto your worktop or sink rather than the wall.
