CB Ideal are leaders in the Australian tapware market, and they produce an extensive range of tapware, plumbing, and accessories, including kitchen taps, bathroom taps, and laundry taps so you can match all your kitchen tapware to your bathroom tapware and even your laundry tapware. CB Ideal offer everything you need from waste fittings for your sinks and baths, bottle traps for your vanities and pedestal basins, toilet roll holders, towel holders, and even washing machine taps.

They specialise in heritage style tapware and traditional tapware fittings, in particular ranges sympathetic to Victorian, Edwardian, or Federation era style homes. Their Heritage range, Roulette range, and Seaview range are their most popular ranges for vintage style bathroom tapware and accessories.

The Heritage range is characterised by classically petit cross handles and beautifully decorative outlet flanges. The Roulette range offers you the choice of either Roulette Cross Handles or Roulette Lever Handles. The Roulette range is characterised by traditional bell-shaped flanges, elegant curves, and robust bulbous handles which are simply a pleasure to use. Finally, the Seaview range boasts neat, straight lines and conical flanges, paired with simple cross handles, and engraved hot and cold indicators.

CB Ideal Heritage range and Roulette range taps come standard with white and black hot and cold indicator buttons. These can be easily upgraded to engraved metal buttons in the same finish as your tap, adding luxury and sophistication to your ensuite, bathroom, and kitchen.

Consolidated Brass tapware and Consolidated Brass accessories are available to order in a comprehensive range of metal finishes including classic and durable polished Chrome, as well as timeless and non-tarnishing Brass Gold. For those wanting a truly rustic and authentic finish we’d recommend Industrial Brass which is essentially the original brass as it is manufactured, and which is perfect for heritage restorations and outdoor showers. Nickel is ever popular and will add warmth, while Matte Black with Chrome Trim will add class and sophistication. Other special finishes include Florentine Bronze, 24 Carat Gold and Bright Copper.
