Tap into safetyWhen it comes to choosing taps, go for a single mixer design rather than separate hot and cold fittings. This will help to prevent children scalding themselves by turning on a very hot tap.Lever taps, like this one, are ideal, as they’re easy for children to operate. Small hands can pull up the lever and keep it set in a central position.

Wash your handsInsist on regular hand-washing to keep your home healthy. Door handles, light switches, phones and screens are germ hotspots, so keep your bathroom stocked up with fresh hand towels and plenty of soap to encourage everyone to wash their hands. Provide hand-washing products at every sink in your home, including the utility room and kitchen.

Choose a lever tapEncourage regular hand-washing and minimise the risk of burns by swapping a pair of traditional hot and cold taps for a single mixer with a lever. The single spout means you can quickly and easily mix hot and cold water to the desired temperature, while the lever is less cumbersome than conventional crossheads for smaller hands to operate.If you want to take extra care, look out for taps that feature thermostatic controls for safe water temperatures and instant shut-off in case of hot or cold failure.

Jargon bust No 5: Monobloc tapThere’s nothing wrong with two separate bathroom taps, but many prefer to be able to blend both hot and cold water when you need something in between.And that’s exactly what you can have with a single-lever, monobloc mixer where the water temperature and flow is controlled by one lever and comes out of one spout (and with just one hole drilled into the basin). The look is pared-back and modern but still looks the part in a vintage-style bathroom.

Bring on the brightness!Cheering up a first bathroom can be as simple and inexpensive as buying some brightly coloured towels and a zingy bath mat. This won’t break the bank, but can really perk up a tired scheme. Colourful signs such as this ‘washroom’ one can be easily propped up on a shelf or the top of a door frame if you don’t want (or aren’t allowed) to drill into walls.
