You struggle to find many basin taps on the market these days for less than £100. Certainly ones that will last you for a respectable length of time. However we have done the searching for you and these are our favourite top five basin taps we typically specify when working on one of our ‘everyday’ living bathrooms.

Combining crisp edges and soft curves, this tap brings a distinct touch of timeless elegance to any smaller sized basin. Its strong lines are beautifully offset by a tactile easy to use lever handle.

Easy to use, compact tap with a well controlled lever handle. Works particularly well on handrinse basins.

No 3 Active Pair of Basin Taps by Ideal Standard

No 1 Focus 70 Single Lever Basin Mixer by Hans Grohe
A brilliant tap that works well with any size basin, but we particularly use this tap with basins 60cm wide and below. Hans Grohe are in the eyes of many, the best brassware manufacturer on the market so it’s brilliant they include a couple of options for under £100.
