Why is Brushed Tapware Trending in 2023?

This year, brushed tapware is set to become one of the most sought-after home renovation items.

Brushed tapware is designed to be highly durable and resistant to corrosion and abrasion, making it an ideal choice for both indoor and outdoor spaces.

DIY Guide: 5 Easy Steps for Installing Brushed Tapware in Your Home Bathroom

If you're confident in your DIY skills and eager to take on the challenge yourself, here are five easy steps for a successful installation of brushed tapware.

1: Gather Your Materials

Before starting any project, it’s crucial that you have all the necessary materials ready. For installing brushed tapware you will need the following items:

  • Pair of adjustable pliers
  • Screwdrivers (both flathead and Phillips)
  • Rubber washers
  • Mounting plates and screws
  • As well as the new tapware set itself

2: Turn Off The Water Supply

This step is essential for avoiding leaks or other damage from occurring during the installation process. Before proceeding with anything else, make sure you turn off the main water supply by shutting off the valve located under the sink.

3: Remove Existing Tapware

The next step is removing any existing taps currently installed in the bathroom sink or shower/bath area. This may require unscrewing parts connected to them with adjustable pliers and screwdrivers mentioned earlier.

4: Preparing New Tapware

Now that all old elements have been removed, it's time to get ready with your new tapware set! Start by aligning the mounting plate holes with those on the sink surface or wall. Then insert screws into place followed by rubber washers, which help secure the connection between these two surfaces.

5: Testing & Adjustments

The last step requires testing out the newly installed taps one after another by turning back on the main water supply, gradually making sure there are no leaks anywhere around connections made during the earlier part of our process. If so, use adjustable pliers until the desired outcome has been achieved!

Secrets to Keeping Your Brushed Tapware Radiant for Years to Come

Keeping your brushed tapware looking and functioning radiantly for many years to come is a must for Australian homeowners.

With the right care, you can ensure that your taps are in good condition for decades!

Here's a quick and handy DIY guide on how to look after your brushed tapware - and keep it in top condition.

It's important to clean your taps regularly to prevent limescale build-up, dirt, and other grimy deposits from accumulating on the surface. Mix some mild dish soap with warm water and use a soft, non-abrasive cloth or sponge to gently scrub off any residue from the taps.

Rinse your taps with clean water after use. If you're dealing with tough stains or mineral deposits, use a vinegar solution instead of the soap mixture. You can also try using commercial descalers specifically designed for removing limescale build-up on faucets and fixtures.

Always inspect your taps regularly for any signs of rusting or corrosion so you can act on them immediately before they get worse over time.

If necessary, repair any damaged parts like O-rings or washers as this will help reduce water leakage, which might further lead to the decay of other components in the device.

By following these simple steps, you will be able to maintain your brushed tapware in its original condition even after many years of usage - making sure that its beauty never fades!
