GO WITH THE FLOW: 8 OF THE BEST freestanding bath shower mixers

Nothing brings a boutique hotel vibe to your bathroom or bedroom like a beautiful free-standing bath with a luxurious floor-standing mixer tap to fill it up with.

The latest models don't just look good either. With a bath shower mixer, filling the tub – and washing your hair – is a doddle. These beauties offer elegance and ease.

And the choice of stylish spouts is wider than you might expect. Styles range from super-sleek and contemporary pipe-like forms to extra tall taps with a heritage or industrial influence. So whichever of the key trends you have gone for in your bathing area, there is much to suit your scheme.

It's not just the styles that are wide-ranging, there are a host of fantastic finishes too. Alongside classic chrome, you'll find warm metals such as brushed brass, bronze and rose gold, as well as dark and dramatic matt black, graphite and pewter - and if you're torn between finishes and want to mix them there are models with metallic accents.

We've selected 8 of the best bath mixers in our edit, so dive right in and make a splash with one of the latest looks.
